Just graduated


#1
Hey, I am wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I have recently graduated from the University of Salford studying graphic design and I am completely stuck on where to go from here. It seems everyone around me has a job offer/work placement and I am back at home.
I am desperate to get into the industry but dont know who to contact. I have sent like 30 emails, called several companies and been onto all the online job boards but each time I get knocked back.
I am confident I am good enough, my work has been featured in Kerrang magazine and I have won different awards.

Thank you Chris :)

Hello Chris,

Call several local design agencies and ask to spend 20 minutes talking to them face to face. Explain your objectives.

At the meeting (if you like them / they like you) discuss work experience / specific projects you could help with.
