Pursuing Opportunities

As a freelance illustrator & graphic designer, I've encountered my fair share of those who express concrete interest in collaborating with me, then never respond back to my affirmative replies. Should I continue to pursue these possible opportunities, or move on?

Hi Anthony, I would say try sending a follow up message. Sometimes things can just get lost in everything else we have going. If you don't hear back from them after a second contact, I would probably move on and just wait for them to contact you when they are ready.

Graphic Artist, Muralist. Shipping clerk.

I'm a hard worker and a fast learner. I'm punctual and I have a great attendance record. I have a BA in graphic design but I'm open to doing other jobs such as a shipping clerk.

Seeking employment opportunities in my area: Brighton, MI

I am currently a full time student at The Art Institute, Novi, MI. I am seeking either a paid internship or something between part time and full time employment that can work around my school schedule until I finish (6 months). Employment would need to fulfill the role of Graphic Designer so I could qualify the job within the parameters for the internship.

Any input or leads are appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Hi Michele: Thanks for posting to Jobcase! Since you're looking for a flexible graphic designer job, have you considered going to sites like Guru.com or Upwork.com? You can apply for design projects there, earn money, and build up your portfolio. Plus, you can work when you need to.

Hi Michele,

I would start by calling some design firms or advertising/marketing agencies near you and asking if they offer employment to students. Sometimes they see it as a great way to find talented people.

Check it out and let us know how it goes. Best, Matthew

Online Entry Level Web/Graphics Designer

My father had the nickname OB because of his last name. He was a mural painter and graphics artist. In those days there was no digital so his work was all by hand. When I became about ten I begin to steal his calligraphy or letter book and do drawings on my own like dad. I stole it so much that my father began to bring me along when he did his work so he would have his letter book. I understudied him from about 1960 to '66 when I went into the service myself. I scored high on the test and was sent to electronics, radar, and computer school. I learned some of the first digital graphics and computer stuff that was around. I worked on an air control computer that had only 2meg (not gig) bytes of memory and was spread over 15 huts. It was mobile and worked, as long as you didn't move it. Late in life, I put it all together with two degrees in Technical Communications that combines digital art with web programming from OSU. I'm 68 and retired, so this is my last hurray. What I am looking for is entry level Web and/or graphic design with a salary between $10k and $25k. Online at home would be preferred. I have XHTML, JavaScript 1.2, PHP 5, CSS 2.0, and some Ajax, Basic, Java, C++, and asm. I have worked with both Adobe Creative Suite and MS Office (Power Point, Word, …). I have a clean record and I am a Viet Nam Vet. There is more to my story, and the color, in my portfolio (See below).

Graphic Design, Information Technology

As a recent graduate I am ready to re-enter the work force. I would love to get a start in the newspaper, radio, or magazine business. Currently I am working as a substitute teacher and I love working with children.

Hey Sandy, do you have a portfolio of your designs? It might help the community in identifying job roles that are more fit for your specific area of design.

Sharing Some Great News!

I lost my job two years ago, I was sad for about a day, I hated that job anyway so I decided to start my own business - Plaid Lizard Design in which I provide Graphic Design services, I am a Graphic Designer. It was going well but not great, I struggled when clients did not pay me on time. So I started looking for full-time employment again. I am 58 so I was concerned with age discrimination but I know I am talented and an excellent dedicated employee. It took me a little over a year but I landed a great job with other talented designers and it feels like a family. I have been there for three weeks now, I miss my naps in the middle of the afternoon! Lol! I continue to work on projects through my business Plaid Lizard Design at night because I don't want to give it up, having my own business is still my ultimate dream job. Going to work both jobs hard for now. I also have so many other side hustles I am starting, sleep is highly over rated! Lol! In your 50's or 60's? It aint over yet! In fact it's time to ramp up! Need some encouragement? - hit me up. I also have a great tool that helps me get clients, land an interview and land a job. But too much awesomeness for one post so I will share that later. Now if I could only find a man!

Creative Leader Seeking Advice for Changing Industries

I am looking to change industries career wise. I have always wanted to pursue a career in art, however given timing, resources, and support, I've never been able to do so until recently.

About 2 years ago, I quit teaching middle and high school visual arts and decided to try and gain employment as a graphic or visual designer. I've spent many years honing my skills immensely in order to compete with professionally trained artists. I am finally confident with my abilities and feel my portfolio can match someone with this level of experience, however I can barely get employers to view my portfolio. My works have been featured in major publications, I've been a culinary chef, painted large murals and I learn very quickly regardless of the industry or task, but I cannot seem to even get an interview or persuade people of my abilities. I've applied to well over 1000 jobs this year alone. I have had quite a bit of formal education including post graduate work (3 degrees) but I cannot afford to go back to school for additional training (and to be frank, college/univ. degrees aren't worth it at times). I self taught myself graphic design with over 10 years of personal experience, and plenty of freelance work so I have many examples of my capabilities and range.

Does anyone have any helpful advice regarding breaking into the art and design industry without additional schooling? I have multiple formats of resumes, creative out of the box styles and traditional formats as well. Your advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks to all who help in advance!
