Tips for developing a creative career

I came across some notes this week which I’d written whilst at a Creative Careers event, related to the Creative Futures research project. I’d summarised five key messages which the speakers (successful graduates from creative courses) wanted to share with creative students. Thought I’d share these with you:

1. Expect rejection but keep going

2. Get honest feedback, listen to it, then keep going

3. Find your passion and follow it

4. Utilise your time at university: volunteering/industry experience is much easier to fit around full time study than around full time work

5. Spend your social life doing things to meet people in the industry
