Always follow the people first, then the role, then client/location

People first. Then client because I may find an exit strategy. And role last because I can always make it work.

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 :)
