Hi, I'm Will Dempsey. Pretty new to this site, been looking through some of the pages and I am massively impressed by the standard. I am currently in my third year of a Materials Science and Engineering course at Manchester University. I have always been interested in design but did not really appreciate the scope for a career in it. in the last couple of years I have become aware of the array of jobs in it and am extremely keen to head in that direction. The course I am currently on does not allow for much/if any creative thinking and I don't think it will lead directly into a design career. My question is, what would be the best move for me to eventually make my way into the product design career area? Would any companies take me on as an apprentice in design with just a Material Science Degree? Is the anything I can do to make myself more likely to be taken on by a company etc.? Thanks a lot for any advice Will
I am a student studying in my second year studying BA Product Design. I have begun applying for a placement year beginning in summer 2012 and am having some trouble with my CV. I have written a 'black & white' CV but now some places I apply for are asking for a 'design' or 'colour' CV. I have looked online at some examples and some of them are truly amazing. what I need help with is what is the best way to do one, because the examples I looked at differed in so many ways. is it better to include a lot of information, or to show your creative side more? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
