The starter of a new year makes us reflect on what we plan to do next, personally and professionally.
In my case, I decided to go back to school and to find a new job. My previous contract wasn’t renewed, so I need to get back out there and sell myself as a designer. But how do I do that exactly? Should I keep pushing towards being the best generalist designer that I can be or do I need to specialize in a particular field?
What’s the difference between a generalist and a specialist designer and how do we chose between them?
You applied for a job that fits you like a glove, and you feel like you can do great things for the company while growing as a professional. The only thing that’s making you unsure is being the only designer there.
Some time goes by, and you start to feel the pressure, while the imposter syndrome kicks in. How do you manage to be the only designer in your workplace without losing your shit?
