So... I'm in the midst of feeling guilty that I haven't gotten a studio job, but loving that I'm working freelance. But after a year of graduating from my school, most of my classmates have gotten studio jobs and have done far better than I have. And not to mention, my parents view me as a failure for not getting a studio job... sooooo, what are people's thoughts and opinions on studio job opportunities and freelance work? I figured I should make a forum directed to people who have experience in both or either/or working fields. I hear freelancers get a bigger bad rap than studio workers.
And just a little Backstory: I'm a year out of graduating from school, 23, and do not have studio job experience nor an internship under my belt (which I think would be nice to experience at least once). If I were to send my resume to studios (which I have plenty), I'm sure many will see me as green as green bananas.
