    No, don't do it. Creative Directors do more than lead the creative vision. There's team management, presentation skills, mentoring, bridging practices, satisfying internal and client stakeholders, and often managing budgets and P&Ls. You will get nothing but eye rolls if you list that at entry level.

    Source: am an agency Creative Director. In my experience, people need to be putting in 10 years of work on a team before you can get promoted and be effective as a Creative Director. Sorry 5 year folks. 5 years isn't enough.
