Karmarama are open for business...

Maybe there will be this kind of karma. Maybe.

Hello gang.

I have been alerted by Lucy Minton (who works at Karmarama) that the blighters have gone and opened their graduate scheme.

You can find it here, on Facebook. You need to fill out their questions by the 17th of April.

You need to be free in late April/early May for an interview, and if successful (you'll be told on the 20th of May) you will take part in a summer internship with two others across the summer - across July, August and September.

The successful grad will then be offered a job in Account Management.

Best of luck.

A few (pre-recorded) tips...

But not by me...

AdGrads was never intended to be written by a few people.

So, it's with great pleasure to be able to host a few bits of content written by the lovely Ms Francesca Wilski. She's in the middle of finishing off an MA in Broadcast Journalism, and has set up her site (ADvice and ADvise) in order to also help grads into Advertising/as part of her course. Which is great stuff, especially as she's just had a job offer off the back of it.

The Facebook group's here, along with the twitter. (On a side note, if anyone's interested in helping write her FB page now that she's gotten a job, leave a message in the comments).

The videos are below. I hope they're helpful:

Let us know what you think.

A job, and some work experience...

I doubt very much if this is what you'll be doing..

Hello gang.

Two more opportunities to tell you about.

The chaps at Rapier are recruiting for an Account Executive. If this sounds of interest, get in touch with Nikki Longhurst at Nikki dot Longhurst @ rapieruk dot com with your CV and cover letter.

Fancy doing a spot of work experience at WCRS? Of course you do. Get in touch with workexperience at wcrsandco dot com for a form (I have been sent one, but I couldn't find one online..odd). The deadline for a week's work experience is midnight on the 10th of April.

Best of luck with both of them.

Marketing and Advertising...

You may need to be powered by a few of these.

Hi gang.

Two new gigs to tell you about, both with a variety of roles on offer. So, without further ado...

1) Incredibull (click the linky for more information)

"Want to work for an integrated agency with a difference? IncrediBull is a small brand communication agency that specialises in PR, Event Management, Digital Engagement, Creative Design and based right opposite St Paul’s. We’re looking for a graduate to join our team to work across our PR, Events and Digital teams. You’ll need to be someone who loves a challenge and not expect any two days to be the same. A regular day for a grad can range from securing press coverage in the national media, participating in brainstorms for new campaign strategies or travelling across the country to lend a hand at a client event. You might also help out our Film team to storyboard a new idea or out on a shoot for one of our clients. We’re looking for grads to inspire us and really show off what they know and so we’re inviting applications by post and as videos as well as the online application form. We know grads have loads to offer, so we don’t want to restrict your creativity. A media background isn’t essential, but some previous work experience is. Applications close on 18th March 2011 and we'll let you know if you're successful shortly afterwards and we'll be holding the assessment day on 14th April 2011, so mark it in your diary."

TCA are an integrated agency, looking for three positions to be filled by their graduate scheme. They are looking for a digital guru (covering all aspects of Digital Marketing, including online, mobile and SM across all of their clients), a promotional/partnership Marketing person and someone to work in Direct and Integrated Marketing. You can find out more by clicking on the link above, and by emailing recruitment at tcalondon.com.

Best of luck with both.
