  • @Hannah Cross-phillipson due to the point I am at in my career, I feel that I cannot be too specific with applications/wording as I feel like this might turn potential employers off. Would you recomend otherwise?
  • When you say 'Creative strategist' what do you actually want to be doing day to day? Is there a particular part of industry you are looking at? I've found it's quite a blanket term, that means different things to different people. But whatever direction you choose there are lots of exciting ways to start
  • Start putting together a portfolio of work you've already completed. Then apply for some junior/graduate roles in firms that already offer this service, it might be you need to try a less obvious route in, so have a think about related roles that will help you on your path.
  • If you’re looking to work in London, there’s a great community for young strategists called ‘Group Think’. You can find them on insta at @groupthinkco
