Nope, pretty standard - wished they broke ancestry down more into countries versus regions. You can continue to take surveys to get more information about yourself.

A1: keep in mind that the world as we know it is relatively new. Shit, Italy (as a unified country) didn’t exist until 160 years ago. Regions are easier to plot with certainty than countries, which are more fluid than we like to believe

Did y’all read the fine print? I’ve heard that they sell all that dna data to anything and everything

Nope - I was what I expected. I was hoping for something more exotic

@A1 that’s why I refuse to do it and I asked my parents not to do it either (family health problems)... no one listened. I know it’s illegal to use stuff like that in insurance now, but who knows what the future holds

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 :)
