Three creative graduates from Scotland have considerably improved their graduate job prospects after having been picked by renowned art collector Charles Saatchi to show their work in an exhibition.
Jennifer Fergie, Rachel Adams and Richard Cook all graduated from art college or university this year and will now show potential employers what they are made of at Mr Saatchi's New Sensations show at the A Foundation in London.
The three are just a handful among 20 young people to show work at the event and it is thought that graduate employers attending the Frieze art fair will stop by hoping to find the next big thing.
Ms Fergie said: "It's my first exhibition since art school and I know a lot of important people will be coming, not only collectors and galleries but other artists."
The Internet Advertising Bureau recently joined the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising and the British Interactive Media Association to call for a greater graduate recruitment push in the creative sector, newmediaage reported.
