Now I feel like I’ve got a good graphic design, 3D creations (blender/ue4) and UI. I also believe that I have decent leadership and managerial skills, can I apply now for art director positions or should I wait for a raise in the company I’m working in (as a graphic designer)???

Art direction is an ambiguous title. It's either a traditional Ad agency direction (more concept driven) or Post-production agency (hands on design making, focusing on craft). Pick one.

I’m surely talking about the traditional one

Go for it! What can you lose?

True…
I’ve got 2 years in creative agencies and 3 years of freelance (5 years in total).

If your applying for art director gigs in advertising then those technical skills don’t really do much since CDs want to see conceptual skills. That’s what’s separates and art director from a designer.

If your firm follows the Cravath scale, do you think you’ll receive a raise at the end of the year commensurate with your advancing a year? (Eg if you’re a 1st year in NY, do you think you’ll get that 10k bump as you move to your second year in 2021?)

I switched jobs in November, got a 30% pay bump and title promotion. I’m now 3+months in and I am really NOT liking the role and miss my old job. I’ve had little support in onboarding, the team isn’t very close, and I don’t get what I need from other teams in order to do my job. How long do I keep pushing through? I’m worried about switching so soon because I was only in my last 2 jobs for 1.5 years each.

I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)

Does anyone know if the government shutdown would delay further visa application?

I‘ve an issue with meeting deadlines. I‘ve 3 people I work for (it’s a pool system) and while I push back sometimes I find it so tiring to keep doing so and it is ultimately not a good look. I’ve spoken to the partners; they have a chat and it all ends with: “we’ll manage” or we expect the transaction will not move quickly. Things blow up when everything moves and I’m struggling with meeting deadlines (which is also not a good look) and I’m questioning my abilities. Anyone has suggestions 😭
