Languishing in London vs. interning in Israel


Hi Jancy,
How are you guys? I’m an Art director in London (been here almost 3 years) I moved here after some experience in South Africa but I’m finding it so so hard to break into the advertising field here. I have been working as a designer for online gaming company (definitely not what I want to be doing)
Do you think it would be worth my while to take an internship at one of the large ad agencies in Israel for 6 months to get my career back on track?

intro Languishing in London vs. interning in IsraelIf you have the opportunity and means to do an internship at a strong agency while you’re stalled, go for it. You could build your book and add to your resume. Beats being stuck in a job you don’t want and getting further from your goal. Go for it.
