Even though things are currently remote, is it killing my chances of getting a job if my address is out of state on my applications? I’m dead set on moving back out to LA, but recruiters aren’t gunna know that from just seeing my portfolio and application. I’m waiting to officially move once my boyfriend or I land a job out there. But do we need to have an LA address in order to be considered for most creative gigs?

I moved back home (east coast) from LA in May, let go and hiring freezes, it wasn’t sustainable with the current circumstances along with a highly saturated talent pool. If I were you I’d put all my effort into networking and connecting with ppl out there. Reach out to smaller shops too, competition is steep. Connections and skills are first, followed by if you live in the area (that’s my impression at least). Start now, decide if you’re striking up convo vs laying it all out there that you’re looking for work. Remember, people are insanely busy right now, some need a breather from work and some need ppl to cut to the chase. I landed my current role through a friend, it’s remote now, and I’m thankful they’re paying for moving expenses (whenever that might be). I hope this helps, I’m also just a junior. Good luck, persistence and good timing is key!

Nice! Keep it up! I was in LA, currently on the east coast working remotely. I’d recommend Playa Del Rey, it’s more affordable than weho (where I was working) especially if you’re splitting rent, and close to the beach as well as a number of agencies.

Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.

Random, but has anyone ever had a doctors office add a credit card processing fee to your co-pay? I’m not even sure this is legal.

I have been going to doctors for years and had the same co-pay all the time I think this office is just trying to fleece me
