Recently, as I study the design industry and do research for my design school, I found myself browsing through online design communities more often. But I found myself feeling uncomfortable more and more while reading through discussion threads.
“Job title: Junior Designer. Salary: The lowest level we can get away with for an entry-level job. Requirements: 5 years of experience and a degree in Design Interview. Process: Do a small project for us which we may use for free after we don’t hire you. Perks: We have great culture and free snacks!” Does this sound familiar to you? It sure does to me.
