Feature Friday: Career Advice from #SCADstyle
If you were lucky enough to catch the SCADstyle Design + Digital Media Panel with sisters Danielle + Jodie Snyder of Dannijo + Christene Barberich of Refinery29, then you know they were dishing out some serious career advice. Here’s a few gems from their conversation:
It doesn’t matter where you went to school or what your resume says.-Dannijo on the power of connections
Intern. Many members of the Dannijo team started as interns.
If someone tells you ‘no’ and you still want to do it, then you’re probably on the right path. -Danielle Snyder
Worst advice: A friend told the sisters not to start Dannijo. That friend now wears their jewelry.
Look for mentors in your industry and outside your industry. -Jodie Snyder
Be nimble + change your course. Take feedback. -Jodie Snyder
Don’t believe your own hype. -Christene Barberich
Always talk about your dreams and be a kid about things. —Danielle Snyder

SCAD Students’ Work Makes Front Page of Core77

NUKE is a smartphone app and pot system cooked-up by Talia Brigneti (B.F.A., Industrial Design, 2014) and Jeff Dull (B.F.A., Industrial Design, 2014) which just found itself featured on the front page of Core77.

 

3:40 pm

Eryn Carlisle (B.F.A., Graphic Design, 2009) talks with Design Juices about starting her own business Zeryndipity and credits SCAD’s Working Class Studio for helping her realize her love of surface pattern design:

I really loved Savannah. SCAD is a great school, and it pushed me to create work that I didn’t even know I was possible of creating. I got to meet and work with designers from all over the world such as Iceland, Scotland, India, Indonesia, South Korea, and the list goes on. It was an incredible experience. It was actually my last year at SCAD through an internship with Working Class Studio (a division of SCAD) that I learned how much I loved surface pattern design – and that it was even a career.

CAS Tip: Eight Questions a Resume Won’t Answer

image

Your resume is just a snapshot of your experience, and it doesn’t begin to tell a recruiter everything he or she wants to know about you—their next great hire. Thanks to Forbes, here’s the “Eight Things a Resume Won’t Tell You:”

  • How did you enter your field of interest?
  • Why did you move from company A to B?
  • Did you accomplish what you were hired to do?
  • What would it be like to work with you?
  • How have you grown professionally?
  • What kind of company was (insert past company you worked for)?
  • Do you use your skills appropriately?
  • Do you listen to your professional instincts?
