It’s very important to know your rights as an individual. Sometimes this means having to read your very dry contract. We all hate reading this. It's full of legalese and sand be very dry. I've not read every contract I signed at the start of my career.
There are a few things that are noteworthy. Like most Non Compete Clauses are not enforceable.
I've been in the industry a very long time. And not once has this been an issue. I'm an artist. I love what I do. I've been able to work at several companies in the same industry and leveled up.
Do yourself a favor: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
I recommend to read your contact before you sign. Ask questions. The company who wants you should give you time to review it. You don't need to know all legalese. The legal dept. is not your industry. It really helps to understand the basics, though.
Below is a link to a vid-cast that I love. It's worth a watch.
