Hi, I want to become a graphic designer, mainly for printed material, and I have been struggling to find a paid job for quite a while now. I'm starting to doubt that I have what it takes or even if I can compete with other candidates so I would like some advice on how I could improve my chances to fulfil my ambition. I would like some feedback on my CV (form and content), which is attached to this message, and my portfolio (bathuly's library) and if you think I stand a chance to find full time employment as a designer. Maybe I need more qualifications or more training? I am not sure if the text on my cv is clearly visible so here is a summary of my background so far I got interested in graphic design after taking an introduction course on photoshop and illustrator a few years ago and really enjoyed it so I decided to go for a BA. I did an art and design foundation course but circumstances in my private life made that I couldn't complete it to the end and I couldn't then enrol for the BA. I had to work so I took some part time courses at London College of Communications to obtain some qualifications. In the past 2 years I have been through 3 different internships: The first one was an Office Admin internship, and I proposed to design a poster, program and tickets for an up-coming charity event they were organising and was then asked to create various flyers and leaflets for them. Not long after I started another internship, editing and updating information for a graduates’ career guide and finally found a work placement with Shape as they were re-branding the company. I got involved in the development and implementation of their new logo and image and worked alongside the communication team to design their visual identity guidelines, stationery and other communication materials. Lately I have been working on my own range of placement prints for t-shirts and other apparels.
