- Supply and demand, innit?
Don't like it, change career.
Do something useful.Nairn
- Nairn, are you defending it because you're an employer? If not why would you defend it?NBQ00
- Imho, London needs a "bubble burst" or something. Because they pay skilled people like shit. Of course nobody has to take the jobs but still.NBQ00
- I'm not defending anything, I'm stating how thngs are. I work with plenty of people in LDN who get paid well, doing their own thing or diversifying.Nairn
- Believe me, I have plenty of beefs with LDN and if I could, would leave, but then I'm old and ready to take my 'skills' elsewhere.Nairn
- I've learnt and developed more in this city than I could've in most other places. Ideally, I'd transition to being a bigger fish in a smaller pond...Nairn
- ...but for various reasons, will remain here for a few more years yet.
- it just seems like a bit of a pointless, redundant set of complaints.Nairn
- Shape, for instance, is whinging but has for whatever reason stated he's wanting to move to LDN - then why whinge? Make different choices.Nairn
- @Nairn, lets see how you fare when aged 40, 50, 60 - have a family to support and you're trying to keep up with 20 somethings able to take a job at 25k pa.shapesalad
- I am 40+ and I don't compete in this market any more. I made choices a decade and a half ago to diversify, when I was in my mid twenties.Nairn
- Nairn, then it's easy for you as you don't have to participate in that market anymore.NBQ00
- Your argument's much the same as people who whinge about outsourcing to India - and my response is the same: Don't compete in that sector.Nairn
- Either up your game, specify your game, change your game, or play a different game entirely.Nairn
- There's someone who posted in this thread who has a family, a home and works design IN LDN.. but does their own thing. I get the impression they get by ok..Nairn
- NBQ00 - I 'participate' in an adjacent market and still do some web and design as takes my fancy.Nairn
- it's just daft to whinge about a choice selection of HR-driven job specs for shitty jobs that are clearly overly competed for.Nairn
- It's not just in the creative industry either. I know nobody is forced to live in London if doesn't meet your payment expectations but still. We can complain.NBQ00
- What I find funny is that I have three 30-40-something friends who work in web-related fields in LDN in jobs that didn't exist even a decade ago.Nairn
- There's plenty of well-paid work out there - if there're no Adobe-suite gigs that pay what you think they should, well, there's probably a reason for that.Nairn
- "but still. We can complain."
haha, and there it is, and you're not wrong.Nairn
- Supply and demand, innit?
on the same page as that job is another cd position for 65/75k. so go for that one instead.
Fuck the creative industry fields. Beauty make up "influencer" it's where it's at.
Kylie Jenner is worth nearly $1Billion with her cosmetics brand.
Jeffree Star is hitting $100M.
Michelle Phan was worth multi-millions years ago.
