Making the transition from education to the workplace can be very difficult. Education teaches you the skills you need to do a job, however it doesn’t necessarily teach you how to land one. Futurerising addresses this dilemma with inspiration, learning and support for your career.

What should be in your CV? What questions should you ask in an interview? How can you stand out from other candidates? How do you negotiate your first salary?

Futurerising highlights internship and employment opportunities, shares biographies from industry professionals, posts reviews of the latest industry work and uploads industry tips and advice.

Futurerising has live briefs for you to submit your ideas to. At the moment, they’re looking for a social media campaign strategy for Batman versus Superman and a creative way for Greenpeace to recruit the next generation of environmentalists.

Upcoming Futurerising events include Leeds College of Art on 5 February, Cambridge University on 17 February, Bournemouth University on 15 March and Middlesex University on 4 April. At each event they bring along an eclectic mix of speakers from creative, planning, accounts and strategy, through to tech and start-ups.
