Junior Creatives

What’s the average salary for a creative in a big city? Graduated last year and have been traveling. Now I’m interviewing for jobs and not sure how much to ask for

Sounds like you’re a jr, so it’s safe to ask anywhere from 45-60 depending on the size of the agency. However, don’t price yourself out of a place you love or one you’ll make good work at. IMO you can make up the money later when you move if your first stop puts you on the right track

If you’re JR, I started doing multicultural in NYC for 60K. Some people tell me I got shorted, others tell me I’m making more than I should. I’m happy

Is it just me, or is there a wave of Indian films propagandizing Maratha history (Panipat etc.)? Is this Modi-driven? I mean the Mughals ruled India for 700 years. That’s sort of a historical fact.

I need some help here... I went on a few dates with a really cool guy, super fun to be with and we have great chemistry. However, I found out he was/is a sugar daddy and routinely hires sex workers.
