More than a third of art and design graduates are out of work, report shows
I graduated in 2004 and there was very minimal support in leading graduates through into the world of work, especially in such a competitive sector.
My sister graduated in 2010, and still, the same lack of support, or real network for talented students to make their mark.
As mentioned in one of the other comments, this is an incredibly difficult industry to break into, so more support is needed from University and College level, as well as from the creative industries themselves.
I have recently started a company to support, showcase, and nurture design graduates in all fields, talented designers need all the help they can get, especially if they are wanting to pursue their own business endeavours, which is where our support is aimed.
Meeting recent graduates again re-interated the issue, as they have all said they have had minimal support, or guidance with regards to working in the creative sector.
