We’ve also written a brief article for new designers on things to consider when applying for a job. You can view it here: http://www.bml-creative.co.uk/2010/09/a-design-agencys-guide-to-getting-your-first-design-job/ hopefully it might just help someone to get moving in the right directions.

    Thanks for posting.

  13. I’ve started a new blog aimed at helping young people get a job, whether its their first job or another partime job.
    It’s a good resource for Students looking for part time work too.
