Hey Jacob

I think any agency would gladly take on an international junior planner. Though remuneration could be an issue since Indian advertising isn't known for the pay :)

Why don't you think about this and if you're really keen I could have a word with people at my agency. Might work.

Hi Jacob!

We have very good brands here. We are doing great things.
The Brazilian marketing is growing fast, specifically in the digital area, but RMG is one of few digital agencies that have a real planning department. We are fighting to disseminate the planning importance over the market.

See you!

Hey, I had a friend that went to it. I was at the one in Miami. I definitely recommend it! It was such a great experience

Hi Jacob,

Here in Brazil the agencies don't have the culture of bringing great international professionals to work here. The thing is opposite here, in the most cases brazilians go abroad.

The agencies languages is portuguese, but i don't think this is a issue for a guy like you, because almost everyone speaks english.

I did work in between but not at an agency. I worked at a Ballet company. If you can get into an agency to work first, I say do it! But if you can't attending the Brandcenter is a great way to make contacts and get your foot in the door.

Best of luck!

hi jacob. if you can demonstrate a real passion for planning & for great communications, you'll eventually get a break wherever you really want whether that's in media, digital or 'above' the line. Just stick at it! Also check out stuff like winning APG papers, Cannes winners, D&AD winners, and have a point of view on what makes really great thinking - every agency is hungry for hungry people.
Good luck

Hi Jacob,

To answer your question...
I believe very agencies are hiring at the moment and some are actually laying off people.
