How many recruitment companies have you sent your CV to or vacancies applied for and not heard anything back. You have uploaded your CV and attached a Portfolio, but then, silence? Careers in Design are a recruitment company with a difference. We work hard to match people wanting a job in design with the right companies. Finding long term matches that benefit both parties is what we always aspire to. We seek to help potential candidates at every stage of the application process, happy to give advice freely and the Careers in Design website offers many tips on how to get your foot on the career ladder or climb it even further.
One of the great resources available is our CV building advice. Your CV can make or break your application, but with so much pressure it can feel daunting to write your CV. Perhaps you don’t have much experience or aren’t sure about what details you should include and what you should leave out. We provide guidance on what needs to go into your CV, how to structure it, and some important dos and don’ts. There is great information available on how to really sell yourself through your CV and what to include in a Portfolio, also advice on how to nail that crucial cover letter.
You have sent off your CV and cover letter and you’ve had an offer for an interview! That’s great – it’s the next step to getting that dream job. But are you nervous about the interview? If so, it is completely natural to feel this way, and Careers in Design can support you here too. We want all our candidates to succeed so we have interview preparation resources available on our site. Get advice on everything from preparation, how to present yourself on the day, answers to common questions and the best way to end an interview.
If there is one thing true in life, it is that not all of us learn in the same way. That is why as well as written advice on CV building and interviews we have created a catalogue of career advice videos available to watch. The videos offer insight into different aspects of building your career, specifically tailored to designers. There are several videos in the series and they go into detail, bringing in our experience in the field and what we’ve seen over the years
At Careers in Design we update our blog at least twice a month with relevant, topical information about the world of design. Whether it’s giving you tips on the role of social media in your job hunt or informing you about the latest design trends in a specific sector, you can rely on our blog to keep you up to date. Remember, in the job application process you must communicate your passion for design to the interviewer, and being conversational about the design world and market trends is a great way to do that.
All of these resources are available for you to look at through our website at your leisure, but there is more Careers in Design can do for you. Call us on 01920 486125 and let us match you up to your ideal job.
