Persistence and passion lead to a job in design

I graduated two and a half years ago. After little success finding a design job I became disheartened, but kept applying. Three months later I was offered my first job as a Mac artworker/typesetter.

After 18 months I was offered my first design job at University of Cambridge International Examinations.

If you are a decent designer with a good CV, portfolio and personality then you will be able to find a job. The money is poor to start with but surely it is worthwhile if you end up doing something you’ve always wanted to do.
