Screw the rest if you are the best
I am realizing, or just coming to terms with the advertising industry being heartless. Not in the sense of it being cut-throat, but in the sense of you are only judged by your works impression on the interviewer; if your work is not good to the person who is reviewing you, you will be notified, as you walk out the door in the most unapologetic way.
However, that CD/ACD, or JCW that is reviewing you, only has a subjective view. If you show your work to other agencies, they may like; if you show your work to some more agencies, they may hate it and tell everyone one in the world as such posting it on their blogs as examples of horrible work.Nevertheless, i believe this one fact reigns supreme. If you think your stuff is good to you; keep working at it to make it better and screw what anybody else thinks, eventually you will strike gold.
