Just switched jobs a few months ago but really interested in joining the incoming administration. If I could manage to get a position would it be a bad career move to switch after just a few months even if it’s for a WH role? Should I stay here a year first then look to join?

Also, it’s only been a few months now, but the earliest jobs in the new administration are going to start is after Jan 20 (unless you think you might become part of a transition team? I would guess that’s restricted to people who worked on the campaign that they already know?) so it’ll get you closer to 6 months at your current job, maybe longer? No harm looking into it!

I had the same dream back in 2016 with Hillary 😂

Any in-house senior graphic designers out there make over 85k and don’t do UX design? Where to you work and what kind of tasks do you do? I’m wondering if I’ve hit a salary cap for this role and need to move to AD or something? Just getting funny looks when I tell interviewers my salary range requirement (15yrs as a graphic designer).

I’m interviewing for an associate position at my firm’s competitor. My main reason for doing this is because I don’t feel valued at my current firm and the pay at the competitor is substantially more. This obviously is not something I can say at my interview. But i need to be able say why I’m looking to move firms when it’s the same work in the same geographical area. Any thoughts?
