I have read with great interest the situation many design graduates find themselves in when leaving college, regarding lack of opportunity and indifference by the design industry in general.
We decided in the early summer to employ a new junior member of staff. We approached local colleges for information on potential recruits. The colleges told us that a senior member of staff would get back to us. Eight weeks later, there’s still no response.
It seems graduates are treated as badly by their lecturers as the design industry.
