You know that old saying, “It’s not what you know, but who you know”? Well, in the design world, it’s about both what you know AND who you know. Companies are hiring top-notch designers for their skills and expertise. But having professional contacts in the industry is just as important and can make all the difference when looking for work. Hiring managers love to work with people they know–especially if those candidates come with a solid reputation.
So, put on some nice clothes and go meet some people. You never know if the contacts you make while attending professional events will someday pay off in a dream job.
