I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again.  Any tips to help me make the transition? Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)

Is working at a healthcare agency early in your career a bad move if you really want to do the traditional ad route? I ask because I was approached to apply for one (highly awarded). I’m at a small shop on a 6 month contract, and since it’s lockdown still, I’m keeping my ears open. I’ve heard it’s a hard niche to get out of.

I’m getting paid a little more than $8/hr (no benefits but still FT work) and my boyfriend called me a wage cuck.

Should I just quit my dreams of working in the ad industry and work at best buy ($15/hr) I have a degree. (lol)

Are there any account roles open that aren’t in Pharma? Seems like every AD post I come across is to work on healthcare

is the pay jump from jr. to ad or senior that drastic? Backstory. First generation college student, first in fam to have “an office job with benefits etc and pto.” Recently been seeing a lot of posts about creatives, why certain positions are more likely to get fired etc. what jumped out at me was the $$ people were giving for each position. I assumed jr’s are like 40-50k, ad 50-60k, senior 60-70k. These posts are saying it’s more like 40-50k, 60-70k and 80-90k. Is that real?

I know these are tuff times, but I wonder if there’s a good consumer-focused / integrated agency hiring senior creatives (ACD/Sr AD).
