Designers look for graduate job opportunities at show

Creative Industries: arts and design
Many young designers will be trying to get noticed with the aim of getting a graduate job at a creative fair this week.
New Designers, the largest graduate show in London, will see various employers trawling the displays to find the next great talent and even possibly turn their ideas into viable commercial products.
According to the Independent, the current economic climate will mean that designers will be trying even harder this year to impress potential graduate job providers with their portfolios at the show, which runs until July 19th.
Danielle Eveleigh, who exhibited at the fair in 2007, told the newspaper: "There is quite a lot of pressure on getting noticed and getting as many industry contacts as possible. It is sold to graduates on the basis that this is their opportunity to find their next step after university."
Dundee University graduate Hayley Scanlan recently sold a self-designed leather jacket to fashion icon Erin O'Connor at a graduate degree show in the city.
