Art Career Guidance? (moved from Mentoring)
On a scale from one to hopeless, applying for jobs I feel vastly under-qualified for? I'm throwing my CV and portfolio out like crazy to a lot of smaller local art jobs (which I STILL feel like I'm savagely under-qualified for), but every now and again job sites will recommend things at big companies like Lucasfilm and Pixar.
Mostly I feel like a silly little kid with a stack of crayon drawings when I send in applications. Did you guys feel the same way? Am I going about this horribly wrong? I'm more than willing to pay my dues and slave away as lowest (wo)man on the totem pole, and I'm already pretty well-versed in swallowing rejection and pressing forward, but I'm a little shaky on my professional legs.
I'd appreciate all and any advice. I'm admittedly intimidated by the professional realm! Thanks for reading.
