As a recent graduate from the Graphic Design program at FIDM, I am always looking for great articles that will help me in my search for a job in the creative arts field. If you are looking for a design job, you should check a great article published at www.coroflot.com (a site dedicated to showcasing creative portfolios from around the world- check it out!), written by Jim Best, the co-owner of well-renowned design firm Pensa Design. Best provides relevant advice that you can apply to your design portfolio, as well as what you can do to impress potential employers in your interview (be confident and positive, he says).
