Got a response from the recruiter mentioned in this post.

Their ideal candidate has some experience outside of automotive as well as a thorough automotive experience.”

Here is what the job listing stated:

Job Description

Hot Hot Hot Opportunity.

One of the hottest, creatively driven shops in the country is seeking Account Supervisors to work on a major national automotive account.

Opportunities are available in Chicago, LA, NY, Boston and Miami.

Job Requirements

5-8 years advertising agency experience required.
Automotive account experience is required – national or regional, no local dealer experience please.

There was NO MENTION of the “other experience” required. In fact, automotive was listed 2x in the description.
I guess it only stands to reason that an ad agency would falsely advertise in IT’S OWN ADS as well.

This News on Friday has me thinking I’d rather not waste my automotive experience on this agency and it’s client anyway…
