Want a female product designer? Here I am

With reference to Peter Tennent’s letter (Letters, DW 17 December) asking where are the female product designers, I graduated in 1993 and, after two years of rejection letters because I had no experience, finally managed to obtain a job as an AutoCad operator, which I’ve been doing ever since.

I imagine most other product design graduates are in a similar position, male or female.
