    Relax. I'm a professional graphic designer, and trust me.. my interview was more hell than yours will be!

    They'll look at your portfolio, then ask you the usual range of shit like "why do you wanna work for us?" and "can you offer us shit, or are you fucking useless?"

    Ask you a few things about yourself, what kinda art you like to do, what you're good and weak at, and shit like that.

    Just relax. Have a cup of tea. If you're nervous, walk in and say "Sorry I'm nervous, I just really want to work here!"

    Worked for me.

    thanks...its my first job out of college and Ive been working in a shitty leasing office for an apartment community...no thanks to my awesome graphics degree. The guy is pretty laid back, but I dont know what to ask for in terms of money. I want to ask 40k. Is that unreasonable?

    It went well and I am supposed to get hired onto their team by Jan. 15th. Im just not sure if they are completely legit. They called me last night at 9:30p.m. (is that weird) and asked me to do a logo...I told him that I can get him the work, but I need a scanner(mine's broken) and some other stuff and some direction. He just told me that I could come in and work on it there...however, I still have my current job to worry about...AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.

    Don't bust ass until you're getting a paycheck.

    :werd: What kind of job calls you out of the blue without hiring you yet and starts asking for work? I would be asking for compensation up front. 9:30 pm? :wtf:
