That’s a great question Alex! If you’re brand new to the industry and you’re just looking to land your very first job to build out your portfolio and your resume, do what you need to do. BUT, don’t feel trapped. Consider the job a stepping stone, and continue actively applying to other places while you work there. That way you’re gaining experience, paying your bills, and better defining all of the things you definitely want to avoid in future workplaces. Sometimes I feel like we don’t know what we want until we’ve experienced what we don’t want.
