When I got offered my first design job, to join a well known agency straight out of university, I thought it was too good to be true… a year later I realised this may have been the case!
From that moment I decided not to go straight into another job and went on to do a two week placement at another company, which led to a month, which led to six months, which ended after a brilliant four and half years.
I can honestly say that taking the risk and starting back at the bottom after my first job was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
What seemed like the end of a career at the time, was actually just the beginning. I think experiencing different places and people is crucial to finding a place that is right for you.
Don’t be dis-heartened if things don’t work out, something better may be just around the corner…
