Todays professional practice was all about CV writing and preparation for the working/designing life outside of uni and it hit home for the first 15 minutes. I panicked about what I would put on my CV, will I be employable? and how can I sell myself as a good designer. As the presentation went on I found myself relaxing and made many notes that I can take forward into next term for when it comes to writing a good solid CV for potential employers.
Things to take forward:
- short and sweet sentences
- give examples of how I have collaborated
- importance and prioritise the most relevant from work to education
I found this talk interesting and helpful, I didn’t feel like I was going to be completely abandoned after I graduate, there were lists and links that Es had given us that could help point us in the right direction for designing a CV and a list of links and websites of potential opportunities after I graduate. This is where I began to relax, I thought my opportunities were limited but in actual fact there are many routes to go down and explore that I didn’t see as a potential.
Also the percentage that only 20% don’t make it into designing was always reassuring, I just really hope I’m not in that 20%.
