I recently left my first job (1 and a half year) out of school due to the insane hours. Ever since we transitioned to a WFH set up we had constant mandatory OTs almost everyday and at least 2 mandatory weekend work per month. It felt terrible not feeling at ease in your own home.
I’m currently working on my portfolio while studying for a possible new career path outside 3D. I’m honestly hesitant to apply for a new job because of the chance the new company will be the same or worse. I’m seeing a trend of wfh means less of a work life balance. It’s very unrealistic to wait for everything to get back to ‘normal’ cause in my country that seems like years away.
Any advice for juniors on how to handle this? How are you guys doing with wfh? I hope all of you are safe!
