Uh, it wasn't great in digital media before the pandemic, and it sure as hell hasn't improved; they also depend on advertising money.

I mean yea this is very true and I’m aware of it, but I’ve been laid off and have been very interested in this type of work and what better time than now to look at it more seriously?

What city are you in? That matters more on the publisher side (I was Vice --> Publicis ---> The Atlantic so maybe understand the process a bit better than most)

Maybe Bleacher Report? Once sports come back.

I do like a good sport. Looked into some football (soccer) stuff! But I assume bleacher report also has some

Prepare for a drop in pay

Like I get it, economy = bad. pay = worse. but if there is ever a time to pursue something I’m interested in creatively now is the time to look around for that switch. do you know other companies or not?

VOX just laid off a ton of their employees. I would stay clear.

Looking for similar companies, or start ups like this. Searches haven’t turned up much. Suggestions?

There is a recent WSJ article about Vice having substantial layoffs.

Yes. Why has no one understood what I’m after here. Did I word my post poorly? I’m looking for something LIKE these places. Not the actual places. They are tough, and the pay isn’t what it’s like in advertising. But it’s something I’m interested in and I haven’t been successful in searching on my own so I was hoping the collective knowledge of this app might be able to point me in a direction. Clearly not. Unless you actually know of something

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
