I am soon to be a graduate in Industrial Design and Technology and am struggling to find information to help me get on the design career ladder.
Because I have not had any design experience i.e. I did not do a placement year as part of my degree course I am struggling to find vacancies to apply for as everywhere asks for 1-2 years experience. I am finding this situation a bit frustraing as if somewhere doesn’t give a new designer a chance in the first place then they never will get ‘experience’.
Despite my lack of experience in design I have a large amount of eneral business experience, although this is unrelated will this help?
Any feedback/ideas anyone can suggest would be greatly appreciated.
