Hi all, Firstly, just to be clear; When I refer to 'employment', I don't mean clients - I mean a traditional 'job' in the sense that you go to in a full time, long term capacity (i.e. not in any kind of freelance capacity). I am curious to how you proactively seek graphic design employment, and where you seek it. I have recently been devoting a lot of time to trawling google, but find that I just repeatedly dredge up the same vague descriptions of jobs advertised pseudo-anonymously by recruitment companies. You email them, phone them, chase them - nothing ever comes back, save for the odd automated survey email. Do you guys go for the long-con and get cosy with local agencies/studios years in advance to foster an advantage when they finally come to advertise for a position? Do you make you own positions, if so - how? This process baffles me, I like my work and really want to climb the ol' career ladder - but it can really batter your confidence when all you see is the soup of dead end leads mentioned above. Any advice would be much appreciated, Jri.
