The Monday Morning WHIP // 102

Getting a full-time job in any creative field is tough. But as Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com) tells us, patience and persistence is key.

It took me ages to get my first full time job as a copywriter.

I got plenty of opportunities to work on freelance projects. And I also managed to snare two semi permanent contract gigs.

But an actual full time job eluded me for quite some time.

Believe it or not this is quite common. Sure you may know someone who cracked a job straight out of college, but most of us don’t.

So don’t feel down if you’ve been looking for a while but have yet to crack it. Instead take a moment to think about the early career of David Bowie.

A household name today, and one of the most important musical figures of the 20th century, Bowie struggled to kick start his career.

In fact, between 1964 and ’67 he released nine singles and his debut album. All of them failed to chart.

Did he give up? Of course not!
