|Never before has one man achieved so little by waring a hat.|
In the mean time, looking for work is a bit of a downer. My main concern with applying to artist positions, is if apply, you get no feedback, even if you request it , so you never know where youre going wrong with your portfolio or art work.
Sure, I understand that over 400 people apply for one position, so its imposable to critique each applicant. (That is why i also imagine my portfolio often goes right in the reject bin, culling saves time.). And maybe theres noting wrong with the portfolio, how would you know? Its up to the artist to assume what what went wrong and try to fix it for the next client, whos needs are different. I mean, you cant fix your portfolio, than come back to them a week later. The position will have been taken by than, also theres the social aspects of being annoying, so its not going to happen like that. (Even if you do realy like the company and the people in it, the hiring staff will remember you as that jerk.)
All this is understandable, frustrating to observe and it often leaves me with the thought: "What the heck am I doing?".
Lets hope for the best. Im sure I'll find work with a great company, eventually.
