Ok, ok. So you’re a cheater. What now? Do you know what you’re gonna say to your coworkers? Or what if you run into your boss on the way to your car? Let us help you, help us. Hell, what if a coworker sees you here? Our Junior Copywriter has some thoughts on the matter. Here’s what @*!% has to say:

Meet one of our Account Managers! Like our previous post, she’s the next contributor to our list of ways to impress. Here’s a tad more information about Cheat on Your Agency Day… as a whole (the 23rd): your interview is 16 minutes with any one person at the agency – any gifts, notions that you did your research, or stories on how you snuck out of your agency, are extra scandalous and therefore, are extra points.

“Wait… you’re missing an ‘e’ in absolute.” Not if you’re talking vodka. That’s right, our weekly happy hour drink is called ‘Absolut Stress’ and its about as stressful to make as it sounds – easy.
