Question of the Week 01.09.09

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

Tying in with our current graduate issue, our latest QoTW asks what kind of things students need to bring to the workplace that they might not have learned in college…

So you get your degree, you have a successful show and a portfolio of great work. The creative world’s your oyster. But what else will you need to get to the next step?

Graduates sometimes bemoan the lack of ‘real world’ skills that they’re able to pick up in education – while studios are often surprised at how unprepared their student intake is for working life.

What can gradutes do to improve the transition to paid work, be it within a studio environment, in an agency, or setting out on their own?

Is having a website important to get your work out there, or does a well produced CV still impress the most? How should you email people for jobs, or arrange meetings?

Is developing one’s personal skills a priority for the workplace? Does appearance still matter?

There’s a lot to bear in mind before graduates set foot in the creative industry – and we want to know what advice you might have to make that path a little easier and, hopefully, more productive.
