Account execs and job security


I’ve continued my research and I read an interview of two account executives and one of them said that you’re garunteed your position for 2-5 years and another said about 10 years. How good is the job sercurity for account executives, you said that you guys even thought of leaving or switching agencies. Is that common?

intro Account execs and job securityNo guarantees. You can work in a place for 5 months or 5 years. Depends if you like them and they like you. If you’re good at your job chances are your agency will want to hang on to you. If you’re good at your job chances are other agencies will want you. If ever there was a business without guarantees it’s advertising. But come on, that’s the whole world right now. At least, it isn’t boring.
