Guest post by Jeremy GarnerExecutive Creative Director, Hiveworks

Getting a job in a creative agency isn’t easy. If there’s one thing you can be certain of, it’s that there’ll be plenty of setbacks along the way.

When you show people your book, there will probably be as much negative critique as positive, and there may well be occasions when you’re close to despair and feel like you’re banging your head against a wall.

But, with a little adjustment to your thinking and approach, you can actually turn such negativity to your advantage and learn to thrive off such moments.
