Bench Players – Episode #16

Getting Your Foot in The Door 

Welcome back to our three part series on what it takes to get into the creative industry, whether it’s as a graphic designer, web developer, copywriter, animator or whatever it is you aspire to become. In part three you’ll hear from Mani and Gil Sandvoal as they share their advice and guidance for aspiring creatives on how to go from “passion to paid” (phrase coined from the talented hand letterer, Lauren Hom). 

They share advice on how to read the room when you interview for a gig and how to respond to tough questions. They provide a new (and maybe controversial) perspective on working for free when you’re first starting out. You can expect several dramatic pauses, and plenty of good laughs and insights in this episode of the Bench Players. 

We hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to rate, review and subscribe to the Bench Players Podcast.
