Lars Bjornbakk, Strategist at Rufus Leonard, gives us a detailed insight into his career journey so far, and how he stumbled across his dream job.

Finding your dream job is kind of like finding your way in the dark. Either you see it as a lighthouse, a beacon from afar, and you do what you can to find your way towards it; or you find yourself walking with a flashlight, knowing roughly what direction you’re headed, but you can’t see more then a few steps ahead.

For me it was like the last of those two. My way into the creative industry sprung out from the ambition of becoming a photographer. That didn’t happen. Today I’m a strategist, and I couldn’t be happier. I got here by being sure of one thing: that I’m not sure of anything.
