Sometimes advertising is perceived as glamourous and people assume you spend alot of your time on film shoots or making TV commercials. It is however very different. It is office based with a lot of management and admin involved. It can be pressurised, stressful, and no day is the same as the one before.

Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
