It’s really hard to get started in graphic design in Ireland –
be memorable by leaving a portfolio at any interviews you attend – this Innovative One Page Resume & Portfolio from Just Creative Design is a good example, or have a look at 36 Beautiful Resume Ideas That Work.

Here’s a handy tip – if you need to bring a table from Microsoft Word into Adobe InDesign, keep the formatting of the table (yes, columns, rows, the whole lot) by placing it (using File>Place) into your document, making sure the ‘Preserve Styles and Formatting from Text and Tables’ option is on.
I used to just copy and paste my text in and then reformat it into columns and rows using the ‘Convert Text to Table’ tool – much slower! Watch out though that you don’t import any unwanted Word styles into your InDesign document.
