Tips for jobs and recruitment in this industry
If you’re an innovative person and are looking for promising creative or design jobs, there are numerous opportunities available. Here’s a few tips for separating yourself from the competition:
- Build a quality portfolio: Keeping a current, detailed and well-presented portfolio is essential for any professional within this industry. If you get asked to come in for an interview, bring along another example of your work which isn’t included in the portfolio you applied with. On top of that, make sure you have everything saved online in addition to a hardcopy.
- Network intelligently: Keep yourself visible and engaged by linking your LinkedIn profile, creative networking profile, online portfolio and anything else that’s relevant. Make sure you keep them all up to date, too!
- Demonstrate your creativity: In design and creative jobs, your ability to think outside the box is a highly sought after skill that doesn’t often get translated in a traditional CV. Use the skills you have acquired to create something unique that shows recruiters what you can achieve.
Since starting work with Become back in 2012 I’ve had the opportunity to work with some great agencies, giving me invaluable experience and confidence. The freelance work with Become gives me the balance to work on site with larger agencies alongside running my own business. This way I can learn and exchange new skills from fellow freelancers and also enjoy the social atmosphere I wouldn’t get if I was working alone at home all the time. Become has a brilliant, efficient team to work with and I’ve always been happy with the placements and flexibility they have offered me over the last 3 years.
