I left Ad school in the heart of the 08 recession. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Facing that job market made me resilient and strong. You will be as well. SC1’s advice is spot on!

I’ve started to see job postings for agencies again. Sports are coming back. Cities are starting to open back up. The worst is over. You will find something.
