What graphic design is, what designers need to know, and who becomes a designer have all evolved as the computer went from being a tool to also becoming our primary medium for communication. How jobs are advertised and how prospective candidates communicate with prospective employers have changed as well, as has the culture and context for many workplaces, requiring new approaches for how to find your first (and last) position.

Through clear prose, a broad survey of contexts where designers find themselves in the present day, and interviews with over 40 designers,   is an invaluable resource for finding your place in this quickly changing and growing field.
