Buy an ad career on eBay!

Posted on April 19, 2009



Aspiring creatives dreaming about an advertising career in London (realizing they don’t have the required experience and qualifications) now have the opportunity to give their career a kick-start via eBay. It’s Craig Kind, a recent graduate from The Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, who’s auctioning a starter kit for lazy careerists with their hearts set on Adland.

Included in the kit are:
– A portfolio of eight integrated campaigns
– Eight awards
– Phone numbers to London’s twelve most influential creative directors
– Tickets for RSA’s party in Cannes

The opening bid is GBP 50 and the proceeds will go to NSPCC, a British charity against child abuse.

Clearly, Mr. Kind is of the opinion that the end justifies the means.
