    Hello peeps,

    I'm Fliss.... A Graphic Design graduate from Bristol UWE :icon_smile:

    Unemployment has eventually directed me to this forum, which is going to be a lifesaver for me, I think! I've just been made redundant from my nicely paid retail management job, but it's given me the kick up the arse I need to start getting into Design! And also perfected my tea making skills.....

    Completely overwhelmed, and feel like I'm starting from nowhere, as I hate everything I ever produced in University, but hey ho!

    Yeah, tea anyone? I make a stonker! :icon_tongue_smilie:

    Get thee to a bar job, m'dear. You need to pay the bills while you're looking for work!

    All good - another couple I rate: Bristol Creatives and Bristol Enterprise Network.

    Spike Island also very active (& Jamaica Street).

    Fliss - great stuff! Fingers crossed. May also be worth a walk around Paintworks in Bristol.

    Hi Fliss,

    Also may be worth trying the South West Design Forum for Bristol jobs. They do pop up.

    Don't forget my agency commission!!!

    Awww fabulous, thank you! You've all been most helpful. I might even drop a biscuit in when I deliver your cups of tea...

    Job I applied for yesterday already went, despite the closing date being tomorrow :icon_eek: Helpful.
