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 :)

This is such a broad question that depends on so many things, but first and foremost make sure your portfolio is 100% consumer work. The pharma work will only hurt your chances. It can be spec work, but it has to be good. As for agencies, I’m assuming you’re talking about the US. I don’t know what city you’re in, but here are some agencies doing good work: WK, Droga, TBWA (ny only), FIG, Mccann (certain teams only), GREY (certain teams only), BBDO NY & Chicago, Highdive, DAVID, GUT (maybe), Erich&Kallman, Arts&Letters, The Martin Agency (certain teams only), Goodby Silverstein Hope that helps a little!
