helpful hints from experts
I am a recent graduate of Industrial Design and Journalism. When studying, we had very little interaction with industry (in either course), which is a big issue for employers, and past and current students alike. With the help of this site, I will attempt to form a link between recent graduates who are looking for work, and those who have already been successful in the job hunt.
To do this successfully I need to interview practicing local designers and artists, and publish those interviews here. My argument is thus: if you had access to a community of employers, experienced practitioners, and recent graduates who have successfully broken into the fields of art, music, design, and journalism, then you could surely learn from their mistakes, and, of course, their successes.
Here are those articles.
Hope this helps., and good luck!
