Advertising Executive Resume Sample

An Advertising Executive works in an advertising agency, overseeing the actions done by the employees in charge of an account, in order to elaborate an ad campaign according to the client’s requests. They work as a liaison between the agency and the client. The main function of the advertising executive is to make sure that the campaign communicates what the client wants to express and to study the effectiveness of the campaign itself.

To become an advertising executive, it is necessary to have at least, a bachelor’s degree in advertising, marketing or in any related field such as communications. Nevertheless, experience is a must. It is very difficult to start your advertising career as an executive without having any experience or major accomplishments to include in your advertising executive resume.

The average salary of an advertising executive is around US$80,000 per year; however, they also have bonuses and commissions for each successful campaign. On the other hand, it is an unstable profession because if you lose an account, you can get fired.
