When to decide your design career is over?

5 months ago from Bob Smith, Senior UX designer

    Took me 6 months and a ton of interviews to find a job as ux designer. I was on the verge of giving up and taking a manufacturing job when a company decided to take a chance on me.

    They almost fired me after a month but eventually put their trust in me and have even given me a raise some months later.

    Never give up if it's something you really want to do. There are so many bad hiring managers that have no clue how to spot a good designer. Often it comes down to culture fit over anything which is painful for creatives (who are often considered weirdos). Maybe consider moving to a place with a community/culture/job market that suits you.
