Experience is an important foundation for a solid career. It is a reflection of the time and effort you put in trying to get better and refining your craft. It is also important to understand what companies are willing to compensate you for your rich job/skills experience.
Try actually calling companies to set up a mini-information interview to go over what kind of professionals they have currently employed and review if it’s a place that can use what you have to offer. Don’t any stone unturned–companies also have positions that aren’t filled because they haven’t found the right person–so it is vital you ask around and do major recon! You might be the perfect pro for that role.
