How to Put Your Book Together and Get a Job in Advertising (Newly Revised Edition),
If you're a budding copywriter or art director preparing your first portfolio, or want to improve yours, you need guidance like this paperback provides. By the way, by "book" and "portfolio," these days we mean your website. Written by a former bigtime creative department administrator, and now in its fourth edition, this very frank guide explains what a "professional" book consists of (even if you don't have produced work yet), and how to present yourself effectively. Not a generic "how to get a job" or interview-skills book
Not only might this book shave years off your attempts to get onto the first rung of an ad-industry ladder, it could help you decide if it's the right ladder for you.
