I’ve been working as a junior for 8 months in a small market & I want to make the move to LA but I haven’t been able to add to my book since portfolio school. Would it be worth taking an internship?

I considered taking an internship at a great shop 3 years in. It was international so it didn’t work out. I landed at a great shop after 4 years. It’s all about timing. If it’ll launch your career in the city you want to be in, it’s worth the temporary financial hit. Just make sure you get paid at least something ;)

I quit a shitty first agency after about 7 months and took an internship at a bigger name agency. Sometimes you take a step back to take a step forward.

In LA? Yes because it’s so hard to get in to any agencies I had to do the same thing and it paid off!

As long as you feel you can prove yourself once you get there, it could be a great way to get in the door! But yes, make sure you get paid something, nothing comes free these days.
