When I started, it was Lord Dentsu & Partners. But after about six months, Rick Colby came in, took over and it was off to the races from there.

Mailroom Guy
Ogilvy & Mather, Los Angeles
I know, I know, putting the mailroom job on the resume isn't the "coolest" thing to do but I loved that job. It was hard. It was thankless. But I learned so much about this business and the people were so great and helpful that I'll always keep this on my resume.
