Episode shownotes

Did you know, we launched the Doing Design Festival on January 29 2021?

Hello and welcome to another episode of Getting Started in Design, I am your host Gerry Scullion, service designer and educator and founder of This is HCD Network and CEO of This is Doing. 

This podcast is focussed on shining a light on the tricky stages between education and employment and also covers moving careers into Design. We realise it’s not a simple career to break into, and I myself can totally relate to this, and often reflect back on the time (a long time ago when I struggled for a few years to catch a break). 

Hopefully, this podcast goes some way towards helping you land your job in your chosen area of Design.

Today on the show we have Joanna Peel, a recent graduate in the area of interaction design in Ireland. We speak about the process that Joanna recently went through post leaving her masters, what she found to be helpful and how she managed to land not one, but two jobs - which is no mean feat in the current world that we find ourselves in.

Let’s jump into the episode.
