In terms of my job search, things have definitely picked up a tiny bit compared to like March - August when things were totally dead. But, yeah, certainly doesn’t help that we’re entering the holiday dead zone where agencies are either shut down for the holidays or not staffing because they still don’t know what their budget will be like in the new year.

Hang in there, OP! We’re all gonna make it (or at least this is what I tell myself)

Most jobs at the associate/jr level are never posted. Operate on the assumption that agencies are always open to hiring a junior. Leverage your network, reach out to recruiters and talent directors and something will come.
