Yes - look at your firms LOA (Leave of Absence) you will be required to provide your doctors information, medication you are taking, etc. Also look into the FMLA (family medical leave act)

Yes, was the best thing I did. All depends on your firm on how they treat you but FMLA should provide some legal coverage. I ended up on disability because it got so bad...and the firm was terrible about it. I ended up leaving within a few months of going back.

Hey Recruiters!
I’ve worked from the creative side to strategy to accounts to client side and have done so all over. I had to take about a year and a half long break for health reasons and am having a hard time having anyone even look at my resume. Are there ways I can show recruiters that I’m interested in settling down and building a true foundation at one company? Or is there a program (not requiring a bachelors) that can be taken to increase my network and likelihood of landing a position?

How much does Microsoft pay their entry level designers? The pay must be worth it right since designers go there to die.

A company with over 100,000 designers but nobody has any eye for visual design or what LOOKS good… there’s a reason they’re not respected in tech and nobody’s first choice.
