Gusto I’m a product designer hoping to switch industries from the public sector to private. I am struggling because I’m starting to see a lot of pushback on the fact that I don’t have industry specific work. So I’m really curious how much working in a specific industry effects your career path.
2020 was a wonderful year for me. Personally, I got to spend more time and grow closer to my partner. Professionally, my toxic job was bearable as it was wfh. Socially, my introverted self loved not having to attend events. Dreading things going back to the before times.
Why doesn’t the government and Biden just decrease the federal student loan interest rates on existing loans, instead of do some form of forgiveness? Reducing a 6.8% interest rate to a 2.0% would make sense. It’d also incentive people to pay off their loans quicker.
We took a wrong turn.

Hello! I need some insight here. I was part of a massive layoff 2 months ago. I accepted an offer and have been working at my current job for a week. I forgot to withdraw for another application and I was just contacted yesterday by FIS Global with an offer. I’m not sure what to do. FIS Global has slightly better benefits but I’m scared about the job stability. It’s what worries me the most.

Desperately searching for a graphic design or UI UX role that is remote. I studied design and have had multiple positions in graphic design roles, I am miserable at my current position that expects me to do all the marketing, photography, graphic design, and comms at very low pay.
I have had over a year of experience with figma and 2 years of professional experience with Adobe suite, 5 if you count my education.

Anyone have Wordpress Dev connects they’d recommend for some back end site management? I helped my bf with a site redesign using a builder plugin on a subdomain and now we have to migrate the new site to the main domain name and ya girl is a designer, NOT a developer and not trying to break a working site. 🙏🏻
I'll soon be given a formal offer at Automattic as a junior to mid product designer. Prior to that I was making 76K annually as their contractor based in the Philippines. I get worried that they'll give me less than that because I'm based in the PH (salary estimators onIine show much less)
Was adviced by a peer to ask for more and let them say no bec they don't do negotiations but try to match. I'm thinking of saying 85-90K and I'd be happy if it's less than that. Is that a fair amount? (Contd)
- 3.5yrs in UX/product B2B enterprise products
- Agency bg going into product
- 7+ yrs in digital design overall
Got verbal offers for:
- UX Designer, Design Systems (hr tech saas) vs Design Lead (financial services)
- Salary for both: $135k - $145k
- Important: Meets the minimum I need to survive living in Manhattan
Is that on target? Or negotiate when the real letter comes in?

I have an annual review coming up soon, and I’m planning on asking for a raise. However, I learned that the meeting is just with my CD, whom I don’t work that closely with & also don’t have the final say in designers’ compensations. How do I go about inviting another person, ideally in a more managerial role?
