Just got an approval on O1 visa extension. Anyone hiring mid-level Art Director in NY?

like

Hi everyone! I am a mid-level freelance graphic designer, 26y/o who has been working independently for the past 3 years. I’m interested in leveling up, either to a senior design role or art director role at a design agency and looking for feedback on my current website before reaching out to studios. Appreciate any suggestions or thoughts. THANK YOU

Went to school to be an art director but have found myself in a role that is more so hands on and production based and I really like it! Any suggestions on how to move more formally into the production world?

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 :)

I graduated a few weeks ago and accepted a role for an art direction internship at a good agency but not somewhere I love. They only gave me a day to sign the offer letter, so I did because I didn’t have other immediate options. But a few days later an agency I love reached out to me about a Jr. AD opening. I’ve now done 4 interviews and have another call next week. How bad will it be to pull out of the internship right as it’s starting if I get this offer for a full time job?

Ladies, need some advice. I am in Scrum Master role for tech team that is more senior engineers and architects. Feeling very out of the loop as I am not involved in all the discussions and then asked for progress on items from leaders and that am I not aware of.. the team gets Ad hoc requests so new items come up after that stand up and SM/ M will ping folks directly. Feeling like I have become an assistant who updates tickets and books meetings..

I work at a small agency. I asked for a raise and was told you can get one in a few months if you do X,Y,Z but also keep in mind you make (on the low end of) what your position should make. My question is—I wear many hats within my agency because we’re small and growing—So while I may be an art director, when needed I’m also a PA, or a production designer etc... SO shouldn’t my salary reflect that??

What are the differences and similarities of copywriting at an ad agency vs. a branding agency? The reason I ask: I feel unfulfilled in my current role as a direct-response copywriter at a tech company and am thinking through next steps. I crave coming up with creative ideas and concepting with a close-knit team. I also appreciate brand strategy (I started as a junior strategist at an agency before realizing I belong on the other side of the brief). Thanks in advance!!

Would love to speak with anyone who made an exit from consulting shortly after reaching M. How did you think about the following? 1. What functional roles will you actually be good fit for? How does one really know? My resume of case work just confuses me tbh 2. What level should you / did you shoot for? Is AD a realistic goal? 3. What platform did you use to search for jobs? LinkedIn? 3. How did you shortlist your set of target companies? 4. How did you ultimately land the "right" job?

Does anyone at the Junior or mid-level here not aspire to be a creative director? I was in a conversation with some coworkers today about the advertising career ladder. Whether from lack of desire or ability to manage others, not everybody will rise to CD level. Does anyone here want to stay a writer or art director your whole career instead of moving into a management position? And is that even possible without aging out or getting priced out?
