Impressing your next guest lecturer, whoever it is, could be your ticket to your dream job.

It doesn't matter which uni course you're on, you're bound to get a bunch of guest lecturers in over the years. It's important not to waste those opportunities. Even if the guest lecturer isn't doing the role you want, or not at an agency you like, they are bound to know people who are (just recently I spoke to an Art Director at a small agency you've probably never heard of and he gave me contacts for BBH, VCCP, RKCR/Y&R, AMV BBDO and loads more).

Impressing a guest lecturer can lead to great things. Here's a few tips on what to do the next time you have a guest lecturer in.
