Fridays Portfolio Surgery

Students were treated to personal stories of experiences after graduation.
Date: 29 March 2014

Students were treated to personal stories of experiences after graduation and some of the fantastic career paths graduates have followed from project management at Conran and creative collaborations with Harvey Nichols and Gensler.

Graduates described the ups and downs of professional life with exciting exhibitions including venues such as the Design Museum and designs bought by Liberty and Heals alongside searching for work and getting that first deal. They explained the importance of presentation and how to get across an idea and communicate well with prospective clients and employers.

Afterwards students said that it was the best Portfolio session they had been to and how helpful it will be when they have to decide on final formats for their own personal portfolios. Words like 'Amazing' and 'Inspiring' came thick and fast and it is a testament to graduates determination to succeed that they have so much to show and so many great experiences to share.
