I am a Graphic Designer in a Marketing Agency company based in Kuala Lumpur.

I have 1 years working experience and I served in this company for 1 years.

My sharing:

This is my first job after my degree. This is a startup company. The salary is quite low but the environment is super fun and no stress at all. My boss is the same age as me so we are all gen-z in the office. It is fun but kinda concern with the pay. My jobscope: Handle clients' social media content for every month. Create landing page for client's website. Doing BTL for client. (leaflet, banner, voucher, poster, signage)

RM9,000
I am a UI/UX Designer in a Software company based in Kuala Lumpur.

I have 7 years working experience and I served in this company for 1 years.

My sharing:

I start working at startups as a UI UX Designer. Is an international company where my boss was from Europe. I have been doing a range of designs from the Customer website (desktop & mobile), B2B website, graphic design (printed and digital), social media design, and video editing. As time goes on, I get the chance for promotion and increment as well as get the chance to lead designers. Guiding them during their internship and bringing them in as permanent roles. Then Covid happens, and I change jobs to a different company which is still an International company. My reporting managers and my team all are in Melbourne Australia. Salary increases a lot as they value paying designers according to international benchmarks. In this company, my workload is much better as I only focus on doing UI UX Design only. Get the chance to sharpen my research skills and get the chance to do research in APAC users. I would say, I don't get my salary now just doing one thing at a time. At the beginning of my career, I take all the knowledge and do all sorts of designs so that later I can only focus on one. I learn a lot from different people that I meet throughout my career and I would prefer to work with someone outside of Asia. The reason, design in the western area has evolved a lot compared to Asia. Still, it all depends on who you design that for. My, advise is like a sponge. Absorb as much knowledge as you can.
