GETTING YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR…
When a creative business advertises for a graduate, they’re prepared. They have a gap to be filled, a job description detailing skills needed and a person responsible for interviewing and reviewing the folio.
Chances are the creative businesses you approach for an internship may not be prepared because they’re not thinking of taking on an intern. It may not have even crossed their mind.
So, you may be blind-siding them – asking them to make a decision about something they have previously not even considered.
Don’t be put off by their hesitation. That’s why it’s important to know what to say and to whom and not to rush them. Take your time and communicate your preparedness.
The key is to make it harder for them to say no than to say yes.
