Each spring art/design schools around the country eject a new crop of graduates out onto the job market. Some may have internships or even jobs lined up, but many will have to scramble to figure out how to pursue their passion and pay the bills at the same time. Here are a few recent guides that share the subject heading “Art — Vocational Guidance”.
Good luck to all present, future and past art school grads (particularly SVA alums)!
