Tom Withers Green relives his recent adventure to land an interview at advertising agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky.

I walk past Crispin Porter + Bogusky (CP+B) twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. I rather sheepishly look through the window every time and have that terrible ‘fear of missing out’ feeling. Reminiscent of my teenage years of not been invited to the cool party. A feeling I can’t stand.

A week into my Account Management internship at FutureRising, I inquisitively ask the office “So what’s CP+B like?”. The feedback is just what I imagined, adjectives thrown around such as “cool”, “creative” and “young”. It is confirmed, I simply must work for CP+B. The question is, what is my plan of attack?
