I met with one of my former professors on Sunday to get some advice on graphic design job hunting/freelancing in Omaha. He gave me a tour of his studio (I think he’s about as obsessed with Star Wars as I am), took me to lunch, and gave me tons of useful intel on the industry in general. We ended up hanging out for almost 3 hours before he needed to get back to work.
Armed with this new info, I spent the rest of the day compiling a database of potential employers and their contact info. I just sent out 28 more emails with my resume and work samples. The grand total is now 45 inquiries sent with 5 responding that they have no openings at present.
More to come.
