Doug Zanger Says There’s No Sense in Crying Over Spilt Interviews

Bit of week ending fun from Doug Zanger over at AdAge‘s Small Agency Diary: “The Worst Meeting Ever: Part 1.” Zanger tells a story about a big meeting he landed in 1992 while still a wet behind the ears youngster with an account manager at Wieden & Kennedy. It’s a funny story, all too familiar to those of us who have blown similar potentially-career-making interviews, but the real fun of it is that he’s opened up the story hour for his readers, hoping people will share their own uncomfortable experiences. There are even prizes involved, should you be the type who doesn’t participate in anything unless there’s a $100 Delta gift certificate involved. So go forth and lay your embarrassments on the table for the lot of us to groan over.
