The IPA is doing a lot to make it as easy as possible for students and graduates to access information about opportunities to work in the advertising industry. They have launched a website called Admission http://www.theadmission.co.uk/ which gives detailed information about job roles within the advertising industry, graduate schemes etc. This is a great starting point for finding out more about working in advertising.
