Venturing On The Path Of Landing A Job In The Graphics Sector

Published / by Rhode Bermudez

Becoming employed in this age and time is one of the highest accomplishments you can get as you add up the years. You need to wait for months and then some to actually get called for a second interview and that is if you are participating in the race for getting as many educational/ technical trophies as possible. In any sector, the requirement is to show off your skills (how many you may have) in the right way. In the graphics sectors, this is emphasized even more so; you get points for being creative and original and being colorful with your work.

Have your own network

You cannot land a job if you do not have the right kind of people seeing your work. Even though Facebook, twitter and a vlog can help you get followers, it will never actually get you a job. Register in a professional networking site (specifically for job offering parties and job seeking parties) like LinkedIn and you will have a chance to showcase your work and have it show up in the feeds of people who will be interested. When making your profile do not do it partially and sloppily. Your future boss will be looking at your profile and unless you make a powerful first impression, you will not get anything. Put only completed works and only put works in progress if they have a reputation. If your social media sites are clean then you can show them in the LinkedIn profile; but only if they are clean. While you are attend one of the top design schools in HK, get acquainted with professors and lecturers and add up to your network.

Have your own toolkit/ website or a work place on the internet

Virtual world is something that has the potential to turn into anything; take advantage of that. Do not do a regular website or an everyday blog of your work. Let your imagination go wild and build your toolkit of works and create a portfolio of everything that you want to show to someone to impress. If you are currently attend a school of design, then you will most likely see that people do not go around with the traditional piece of paper calling it a resume. If you want a job in the world of creativity where the most wild and trendy works lead the race, then you would need something innovative to even leave a mark; and Microsoft Word is not that innovative idea.

Always go for the visuals and make sure that it is eye catching in anyway possible (but not too extreme as that will get police on your doorstep). Always be true to your style and try not to something new just for the sake of getting into a workplace, because you will have to keep up with that style to keep the job. Take every opportunity to showcase your work and get feedback.
