Today I ventured out into the world on my bicycle to go to a job fair for some jobs at DIA. To help protect my resume, and as general good practice, I brought along my sketchbook. While waiting for a preliminary interview, I had a fair amount of time to draw some of my fellow job hunters.
During my interview, I brought up that I was a recent grad of Rmcad and my enthusiasm for drawing and painting. I offered to show her my sketchbook and she was delighted to look through it. It was a great ice breaker and confidence boost for the rest of the interview.
So, here's to hoping art helped me get a full time job that pays me more than the lowest amount legally allowed. Cheers!
