Twenty Jobs, Twenty Lessons – a Long, Strange Career in Marketing from Junk Mail to Social Media by Bob Cargill
Projected Release Date:
March 2022 June 14, 2022
I have been working on this book since the beginning of 2019.
It is a recap of my career in marketing so far, during which time I have worked at over a dozen different agencies – as a copywriter, creative director, social media director and other related titles – in addition to a few large companies.
It is a story about climbing up the corporate ladder only to fall down time and time again.
It is a story about business. It is a story about ambition. It is a story about resolve. It is a story about frustration.
It is a story for anybody involved in the fields of marketing, advertising, PR and social media.
It is a story for young professionals with bright futures in front of them and senior-level executives who have been there and done that.
Most of all, it is a written documentary on the many changes in marketing in the last three to four decades and how one creative professional has kept his eyes on the prize despite the moving target.
