A picture tells a thousand words, or so the saying goes. I have seen some pretty bad and/or pointless infographics in my time – especially about careers related topics.
However, this one is excellent. It is produced by Fifteen (http://www.fifteendesign.co.uk/journey-into-the-design-industry) and is about developing a career in the design industry.
Actually I think you could replace the word ‘design’ with many other job areas e.g. media, publishing, journalism and the advice would still be really useful.
