Too often a design or architecture degree is seen as a means to an end (a job in an established practice). But imagine for one moment that there are no employers, no firms to send your resumé to, no interviews to be had—what would you do? How would you forge your own path after graduation? The current economic climate has seen many graduates chasing a finite number of positions. The most ingenious and driven designers have found weird and wonderful ways of making opportunities for themselves, often by applying their skills across the creative disciplines of art, design, architecture, and interiors. Knowing what you want from your design career and being able to adapt your strategy to suit is basic and vital—just like in the wild, designers need to evolve. The book celebrates the various strategies that students and graduates are taking to gain exposure, while also including interviews and inspirational advice from those who are now enjoying success as a result of their creative approach to employment.

This book has basic contact information for the trades and technical skills including apprenticeship programs and job websites. I cover community colleges and vocational schools in book #2. The trades are really big because they're always there regardless of what high-tech industries come and go. Whenever I go jogging, I always see the plumbing trucks, the electrical trucks, the contractor trucks, the carpet cleaners, window installers, etc. No matter what happens, people always need those basic services. I looked around for an indepth vocational-trades book. I couldn't find one. Here is my attempt at a good comprehensive vocational trades book. Even in the trades, be very wary about what you decide to go to school for. I've had friends spend a few years taking a certain vocational program like electronic technician or computer tech only to end up not being able to find a job in their field.
