Pursuing a career in digital ad operations
Online companies that produce content and needs on these pages, will require an adops specialist. It’s the adops person who puts the digital advertisement on a page. It’s a very specialized role - one you can’t learn at a university. You need to be on the job to learn it. Your typical employers are TV stations, radio companies, print (newspapers and magazines), and online companies. With media consumption at an all-time high, companies are struggling to find talent. That means, JOB SECURITY!
As mentioned before, ad operations aren't really taught in any institute. So, you have to get a job to learn the trade. This means everyone is a fresh starter! With proper training and practice, you become a champion eventually. So, one doesn’t need experience to begin their journey in digital adops. In my time, I have seen people transition from all sorts of backgrounds - lawyers, retail workers, event managers, sales representatives, etc.
Due to the competitive nature of the marketplace and the demand for experienced candidates, adops specialists eventually grow into a wide variety of roles within the advertising industry. Some end up in higher-tech roles, others become managers in the adops teams, while others move into Sales roles also. The options are many!
I am Manoj, and I began my own career in digital ad operations in 2011. Over the next 10 years, I worked in 3 of the biggest media companies in Australia, covering channels in radio, TV, streaming, and online. I have interviewed newbies, trained them, and mentored them, who in turn have grown into wonderful adops specialists. Prior to adops, I worked in business development.
