How to Get a Job as an Industrial Designer and what NOT to do

Are you currently studying industrial design or looking to get into it? I remember when I was a student myself and how I would think about the careers and opportunities after graduation. Is anyone going to hire me? What do I need to do to get noticed? Investing years into an education without knowing the outcome can be stressful.

In this videos on how to get a job as an industrial designer I’m going to share a couple of tips that helped me out when I was applying like crazy to companies almost 10 years ago now. You’re also going to see a couple of horrible sketches, but that’s not the point!

I hope this video will help you out. Let me know what your plans are for the year by commenting below. What is your goal? Where do you want to be by the end of this year?

Peace out!
