What kept me going as a student looking for the first design job?

Looking for your first creative job as a student was tough. Not only having to keep up with academic performance, you also need to make sure of your extra curriculum hours well spent. The pressure to fit in was also something added to the uncertainty, especially if you come from a different culture and country. Creative jobs are not easy to navigate especially if you do not speak the native language. It is also one of the fields where English can be the working language.
