I am a graphic designer, and I worked in France in two companies for eight years, before I have the eight years experience I worked before as a freelance graphic designer for three years.
Now, my questions:
I just moved to United States and am confused about what I put on my résumé exactly. Do they count eight years and three years freelancing, which is eleven years as experience, or do they only count on-site experience working with companies?
Secondly, let's say they don't count freelancing period! which I have eight years of experience on site with companies. Do I call myselfa senior graphic designer or mid-level graphic designer on my résumé? Some people they told me I have seniority, but I don't want to apply on senior positions because am still not confident with my English, and I also have a French accent.
