I’m Junior Art Director in NYC looking to move into another Junior position, but I rarely see Jr. positions posted. I feel like they all just get hired from internships. Any advice?

Is there any reason why you are not looking at mid-level positions?

I see. If I were you, I’d continue to apply to mid-level positions while reaching out to both recruiters and CDs at agencies you’d like to work at. And I wouldn’t bring up the level you’re seeking proactively and let them determine what position you’d fit in as the conversation progresses after they get to know you, your experience and your skill set.

At least to me, it’s not really that much of a difference between junior/mid. Some places like mine don’t have junior titles. So don’t box yourself in with it. You can also position yourself as “junior ready to take on the next level” if you really have to.
