If you have just graduated, or are still studying for your degree in design, you may be wondering just what kind of jobs you will end up with. If this is the case, then this guide is for you.
Design students are lively and full of ideas. They are likely to watch movie credits with interest and a critical eye, own Apple products and laugh at people who use comic sans and they also typically have a range of skills that are highly valued in the graduate jobs market.
The skills that design graduates are likely to have to offer include:
logical thinking and problem-solving
research and editorial skills
presentation and other communication skills
hands-on project management
software skills. Other possibilities include:
film and television production
editorial roles in printed media
product and packaging design
Plenty of design students have taken the subject in different directions. Consider these examples:
an eye for detail.
Obvious career options for design graduates include web design, interactive media and video editing.
It is highly ICT-orientated and will appeal to students with an interest in technology, computing, mapping, geography and environmental management.
