If you go a full year without working on anything that belongs in your book, that’s when you should accept that you’ll never get anything for your book. Now that you’re there, you need to spend your nights and weekends working on spec, maybe you want to use some assets from actual clients you worked on and make something nee out of them, whatever you have to do to improve your portfolio. But you’re more employable when you’re currently employed. If you quit without a new gig lined up, you’re letting this place put you deeper in the hole. Don’t do that unless it’s an toxic environment. I’ve been there. It took me three years to get out. But I stuck it out, did the things I mentioned above, and I’m in a much better place now. Happy to talk with you about how to move forward from where you’re at.
