Today I got a call from a Creative Director of Mccann Erickson. He offered me a job as Graphic Designer. I was stunned cause I've never thought they will confirm in such a short time since the day we interviewed. Somehow I think I would lost my freedom if I work in such a big international agency, my life would be busier and tougher. But, 1 thing for sure, my job exposures will be widen, I learn more things. Is time to farewell my freedom, but i promise i will be back one day with more $$$...

thanks dude. but i am not too sure of joining them now. cause life is too tough in big agency. is like 18 hours working, 6 hours sleep, continue non stop everyday, no more weekend. :( you think i should accept the job like this?

dude, if you wanna be a designer there's no question about whether you should take it or not. You need to take it and work for about a year and gain experience (studio) and after that, you can go and freelance, start your own company or some like that but I strongly suggest you take it and not let an opportunity like this pass by.

I checked their site and it's a HUGE design company. Don't be intimidated by the lack of freedom. If you love design, 18hrs would be like nothing. And $20/hr would be a reasonable pay man. But put aside the money factor, experience will be priceless. Go for it yienkeat. But that's my opinon.

thanks for your support damian. i totally lost now. initially i dream to work in big agency like this. somehow my dream is gone when i saw my local market is so so disappointing. is like not much different between big agency and small design house here. so i was thinking is that so important to work in big agency? Anyway i havent made my final decision yet, i am pending for few different companies here, maybe i will choose the one i feel most comfortable with....? floating in the ocean now... T.T

btw, i have experience in agency before already, and the feeling just ok... have been working for 3 years, is time to think clearly what i should i do next... who knows maybe not design?

thanks damian, thanks for giving me ur opinion!

Oh well, once you have the experience, not a big deal. I guess the best thing to do is choose a agency you're most comfortable with indeed. It appears you're more experienced than I though. My apologies.
