When it comes to finding the right job, you might not want to make a call to a job board, says Kristin A. Crouch, associate director of recruitment and employment services at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But with online platforms like Graphic Designers Guild (GDS), a group of professional graphic designers that was founded in 2011, you can find a job that suits your skills and interests.
Graphic designers can use GDS’ platform to ask questions, receive recommendations and submit résumés, according to the group’s website.
They can also find out more about graphic design jobs, including job openings and the most popular graphic design industries in the U, according a GDS press release.
“It’s great that a large number of professional design schools are participating,” says GDS co-founder, Andrew Crouch.
“There are a lot of talented people out there who are getting a lot more work through these online platforms.”
In addition to online platforms, GDS has also developed its own, mobile-friendly app.
Called Graphic Designer.com, it’s a mobile app for those who don’t want to download a full version of the app, which requires a desktop browser to use.
You can also use it to create and submit job applications.
It’s available for Android, iOS and Apple devices, but there are no plans for an app for Windows.
You’ll need a desktop computer or laptop computer for the app to work, and you’ll need to have an internet connection to view job listings.
And, while there are plenty of jobs available, Crouch says the biggest draw for many job seekers are the personal recommendations.
“If you’re an artist, you want to know that you have a great visual sense, and that you’re a creative type,” she says.
And for designers, they can also ask questions to help others find the perfect job, including what kinds of jobs they should be pursuing.
And they can help with résumé submission, if they’re looking for a job at a specific company.
In other words, a job is one-stop-shop for job seekers looking for work.
“We’re excited about being able to connect with those individuals that are looking for the job, whether they’re artists, designers, engineers or whatever,” Crouch explains.
“It’s a great way to reach out and get help, whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been in a certain industry and want to get in touch with someone.”
For those looking to get started, the best thing to do is look for a company that’s a member of GDS.
“They’re really great at providing information about the various opportunities and their different requirements and what they offer,” says Crouch of the organization.
“You’ll see some of their online profiles and what people look for, and it’s really great to be able to compare yourself with those who are already in the job market.”
Crouch recommends that people get an interview with the company’s senior director, a graphic design executive, at least two months before they apply.
“He’ll ask questions about your background, your background in design, your work experience, whether or not you have any previous work experience and whether or
