Entering a creative industry as a young professional can be difficult and intimidating. Many young designers ask themselves as graduation approaches, “How am I supposed to prove my talent and ability without previous career experience?”
Portfolios, portfolios, and more portfolios.
The great thing about entering a creative career path is you have more opportunities to showcase your abilities in a visual manner. Unlike other careers, where job seekers must promote themselves through impressive wordsmithing on a one-page resume, creatives have the ability to captivate through portfolios. The transformation of a bland resume to an expressive portfolio is an art in itself. The process isn’t easy, but once mastered, it is the greatest tool to success.
