Why employers are seeking Art and Design graduates

When it comes to graduating from university, one of the biggest tasks is securing employment in your chosen field. For creative art and design students, this task can seem daunting as the job title ‘Artist who likes to use clay’ doesn’t quite exist.

But what many art and design graduates don’t realise is that they’re some of the most employable people in the job market. A creative art and design skill is not a standalone attribute; it comes with many other qualities that employers seek.

Adaptability

Many creative students are incredibly adaptable. They are given a certain amount of time to complete a project; however, unlike most vocations, there isn’t a Ctrl+Del option when it comes to painting on a canvas. Being able to adapt to a new situation and ‘think on your feet’ is something many employers are searching for.
