This infographic on building a design career walks aspiring designers through their potential job path. From Fifteen Design, 'Journey Into the Design Industry: Tips, Tricks and Free Portfolio Review' is for people who want to work at a design agency and the steps to follow to do that.

The guide breaks building a design career down into five categories: be prepared, build your portfolio, apply for work experience and job hunt, interview strategy and your first job. The first step includes a checklist of things to be doing, including enter design competitions and do an internship. Your portfolio is described as your single ticket into the industry. Creating a CV and cover letter, approaching companies even if they aren't hiring, researching them and not dictating a salary are all steps in the job hunting process.
