Tomorrow, an AP art class from a nearby high school is coming to the office for a visit. They will take a tour of the office (which is chock full of mismatched art pieces) and then meet with each department to learn about agency life, different member’s roles within our process, and how we got into this industry. Four people from the creative department will talk to the kids: our VP, an art director, a copywriter, and me!
I’m totally nervous but really looking forward to it. I would love to do some kind of teaching in the future and I have taken my own twisted path to get where I am so I feel like I actually have something to say to them. Here’s hoping I don’t screw it up.
It should be a fairly informal conversation but we were given a few things to think about before we meet with the kids; stuff like who we are, what kinds of education helped us, and the technical applications we use.
But the most interesting thing we were asked to ponder before our discussion tomorrow, in my opinion, is What Kind of People You Like to Work With. Considering the type of people we like to work with is the perfect way to reflect on the type of person we should strive to be in the workplace, or just in general!
