    Hey,
    Up until quite recently my agency I was with had a good few days every week for me. Now despite good feedback i find myself with little work (There could be many reasons for this i think) so I am looking to Join other agencies. Now heres my dilemma. If I was to join another agency or two would it nark my old agency off? They are a very lovely office but Im worried that if I did join another agency and the work did pick up at my old one that they would overlook me because I had simply joined another agency. What do you think?

  3. Not at all. These days it is wise, and accepted by all, that to find enough work you have to join quite a few agencies. Agencies tend to have different client groups and specialise in different geographical areas.
     
  4. There is no such thing as agency loyalty. Business is business.
     
  5. I'm with a few in Coventry, and work has dried up for a lot of them.
