from the lovely Jane Gowans during one of our recent lectures
(this isn’t her advice I just enjoy Marc Johns)
This is the advice…..
being motivated and hardworking are qualities that future employers are looking for. Work hard to get to where you want to be.
If you’re in an exhibition/entered a competition/working on a new piece….Whatever you’re doing post updates on the process. Promote it who knows what opportunities will come from it.
Make genuine connections with people. Get to know people outside of your own discipline Use social media. Talk to lots of people. Exchange business cards. Keep in touch.
BRACE YOURSELF FOR FAILURE
Nothing comes easy. If you want to be successful you have to work hard for it and be prepared to hit some bumps along the way.
