What is Advertising?

Advertising is designed to promote or sell products, services or ideas through all kinds of mediums such as newspapers and magazines, poster ads, neon signs, billboards, and television and radio commercials.

Were you the person in class who ensured many people showed up to an event? Were you someone who easily captured people’s attention, whether it was through your writing or maybe a drawing or sketch? Do you embrace change whether it has something to do with your family or where you stay? Do you always laugh at commercials on television, because you think you could come up with a better concept? Then you may want to consider enrolling in advertising.

Were you the person in class who ensured many people showed up to an event? Were you someone who easily captured people’s attention, whether it was through your writing or maybe a drawing or sketch? Do you embrace change whether it has something to do with your family or where you stay? Do you always laugh at commercials on television, because you think you could come up with a better concept? Then you may want to consider enrolling in advertising.

All businesses, from small stores to large corporations, depend on advertising to get their products or services in front of consumers. Putting together an ad campaign requires the work of both creative talent to plan, design, and write copy and business experts to manage sales and track results. While advertising careers were once limited to print, television and radio, rapid advances in technology have expanded opportunities to online media as well.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Advertising course?

Creative

You’ve always been good at some form of art. Maybe your drawings and artwork were the highlight of any art class back in school, while others fooled around, you drew pieces Michelangelo would’ve been proud of. Okay, maybe you aren’t that good just yet, but you definitely have creativity flowing through your veins.

Team Player

Back I school, you were just as comfortable leading as you were playing a supporting role. You didn’t mind either as all that mattered was that the team came first.

Good with stress

How good are you with stress? Can you work under tight deadlines? Can you handle getting calls in the middle of the night, from irate creative directors or clients? This is the norm for anyone in advertising, but especially for those in big agencies services huge clients.

Open to criticism

This is not an industry for people who cannot take criticism. Not every idea you have is going to be well-received. Your work will pass in front of many eyes before the ad campaign is released and will undergo many changes. You may have written your best copy yet, but you're asked to start over and do it again. You must handle criticism very well. Don't take offense to being asked for changes to your work.
