The Week: The best of

"We ran our graduate recruitment day yesterday. What amazed me was that we shortlisted 12 for the assessment day, but only eight showed.

"One was late, one was a total no-show and two cried off the day before - they at least had the politeness to tell us. I was gobsmacked. Is this a Gen Y thing or am I just getting old? I just remember the efforts I went to, to get into this industry xx years ago. Are we just not sexy any more?" - G Wheeler on the industry's graduate recruitment crisis

"It feels authentic, truly of Indian culture but based in Britain. It's charming and sells the product without feeling like a hard sell. Sounds like there was some interesting planning behind 'why Britain loves curry' too. Great, great stuff." - Rob Mortimer on JWT's recent Patak's campaign

"Recently, GMTV asked me to go along and talk about alcohol advertising on morning TV. When I got there, I found it was a bit of a stitch-up. The interview was actually about banning alcohol advertising. And I was supposed to be the bad guy." - Dave Trott, Trott goes on and on and on

"I love these ads. They're so friggin' weird. I shall eat two Rocky biscuits in celebration of fun work still being bought in a recession." - Hollie Newton on Mother's "biscuit advisory board" campaign for Fox's.
