Agency Life – what do you say about it? You hate it so much that you actually love it.
Dramatic, but true! Working in an agency or in the social media industry for that matter involves some really eccentric quirks. A lot of quirks.
Right from tiny pieces of wisdom emitted from the random #ThingsYouHearInAgencies to situational comedies – which happen a lot! The unreasonable clients, demanding deadlines, excruciatingly painful briefs sprinkled with words like trending, viral, and CTA.
Yes, Agency Life can be a handful, but let this not fool you, because it is one of the best damn things out there.
