I’m looking to do the jump from senior designer to UX/UI designer for better pay and benefits. I’ve designed and developed multiple sites, did artwork for a gaming app, and do 3D/VR work.

Is there anything I should learn or add to my experience to be a high qualifying candidate? And what is the ideal salary for someone with my experience? 7 YOE in this type of work

Salary is around $100k. Client is a content studio to be named later. The work sounds pretty broad: social, web, pitches, case studies. Starts within 2 weeks.

Send me a private message w full name and a link to your site and hopefully something can work out.

Hi fishes! I Have an interview at an agency in NY I’ve been crushing on for a while. Having a hard time figuring out my salary range. I make 90k in SF at agency, would it be crazy for me to enter the discussion at 85-90k? Knowing I’d be willing to be backed down to around 80k (give or take 2k). Glassdoor is a little confusing bc there’s separate suggestions for “senior designer” and “senior graphic designer”. Anyone have suggestions or willing to offer how much they make? Thanks y’all!

Currently a Solutions Consultant at Pegasystems.

I am interviewing at and considering making a jump to
Oracle as a Specialist Solutions Consultant.

The reason for my move is currently at Pega SCs are treated more as AEs or Account Managers. The role at Oracle would be more of a true SC position. I also feel that Oracle will look BETTER on a resume and someone as young as me would have BETTER programs in place to train me and give me the foundation needed to be a successful SC.



I'm a 2nd year associate at a midsize, blah firm in the mid-west. Trying to get into privacy but there are very few opportunities in the area outside of the handful of biglaw firms which aren't likely prospects for me. Moving cities isn't an option for family reasons.

I got an offer for a privacy program manager role. Pretty much pure privacy work for a slight drop in pay. Has anyone made a similar change/know of someone who has? Is it a one-way trip away from law?


I don't hate my coworkers but I'm running out of excuses to skip social events at work.
