    This is the most accurate and up-to-date source I've found for COVID-19 info, for those of you that are into this sort of thing.

    I've been placed at a large company temporarily. The work is so so and the pay is well below the rate that I am accustomed to, but it may lead to full-time placement with better pay. Just sucking it up right now while the world is on fire. Good luck with the position!

    I'm in the same situation in Los Angeles. I had been working 40hr/wk for the same client for about 18 months, then their budget ran out. I scrambled to update my résumé and portfolio and have had more difficulty than I ever have had in the past finding new work. And I have been HUSTLING. The market is saturated with young designers who are all simultaneously finding themselves in our position, so it is tough out there. The best advice I can give is to lower your standards at a time like this. Be open to taking the jobs that you may not normally choose to take. Do some pro bono work. It will help you to continue to build relationships in this tough time. Also remember that people love to help when they have the power to do so. Be public about your search. Good luck!

    It was introduced a few months ago (I think?) as a response to unwanted spam posts, then changed back after a time for reasons I don't know. I feel like downvoting invites negativity and isn't beneficial to a forum that is trying to foster productive design conversations.

    There were a few negative people who drove me from the site, along with the introduction of downvoting, which I'm not a fan of. I've always appreciated your comments and input into conversations.
