Did You Miss Our "Help Wanted" Event?

A few weeks back, we held a speaker panel event to help answer some of your job-hunt questions. If you missed it, check out one of our panelists' advice below, and mark your calendars for another career advice event on March 15 ... keep reading for all the details.

Do an internship! That's how I started, and I learned so many things and made connections that I used later to get a full-time job. Also go to as many networking events as you can. There's SPD, AIGA, Art Directors Club ... you can also volunteer at these organizations. The more professionals you meet, the more connections you make, and the more jobs you'll hear about ... it's so much about "word of mouth". You can also do design work for charities that may not have the money to pay you but you'll gain experience, work for your portfolio, and more connections.
