If you've worked in a major city, you know how competitive it can be when it comes to finding a job in any of the creative fields. With all of the professionals who work in graphic design New York and other large cities like Chicago and Los Angeles have to offer employers, it's a good idea to sign up with a career agency to gain an edge over the competition.
Most talent agencies place people in contract positions, but many of these have the potential to become full-time jobs. If you've been working as a freelancer, this can be the perfect way to transition into a corporate environment. You'll be able to get a feel for the working conditions and see if the company is somewhere you can see yourself working on a permanent basis.
If the match is a good one, you may be offered a full-time spot once the contract term is over. If you don't see yourself staying, you can always decline and try out another contractor position through the talent agency.
