Life After Advertising

This helpful little web app helps offers up career suggestions for those considering a life outside of advertising. Created by Wunderman.

I got "knife thrower's assistant'. (WTF, I ain't no character actor, I'm a leading man.)
Notice that I did not use my real name. Dash Cunning is my new favorite fake name. Rarely do I admit to working in advertising, I usually say something like:
"race car drive" or
"pilot for delta"

I used to tell people that I "owned a fleet of garbage trucks in Georgia".
This produced remarkable results. It allows you to convince people you are very wealthy (who would lie and say they are a garbage man?) but lowers the levels of suspicion and intimidation that lies about great wealth can create.
