Last Friday morning, I met up with one of the owners of a design studio in Rotterdam. It has been my goal for the past couple of months to get in touch with as many design studios I admire as possible, to expand my network and increase the possibility of getting a great job when I need it (or when it's available).
I was a little nervous because, well, you're showing your own work, your pride and joy and personal ability, to someone who should know better than you if it's good or not. I was just so thankful that it wasn't a job interview because I'd be ten times more nervous!
It went well, the guy was super friendly and he'd even been to Malaysia many times for diving, so there was some common ground. In the end, I'm relieved and happy everything worked out and I got positive feedback. I hope it gets easier the more people I see.
