    I know that in a lot of Job applications I’ve seen in the past, a lot of these companies expect you to know EVERYTHING that they list. But If I had to pic one then its keeping up to date with ongoing trends in design.

      You’re right Neil, there are a lot of agencies out there that look for a “jack of all trades”, which I think is really a disadvantage, but that’s a whole other post.

      Staying ahead of the curve and knowing what trends are current and which ones are coming up is huge. Keeps you ahead of the game!

    Excellent points, Chris. And I would add “a thick skin” to the list. It dovetails nicely with point #4. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Couldn’t agree more with that Rafael!

    Four true solid points. I have met a lot of people that try to take advantage of designers; it has happened to me before, but since I started to be more confidence I have found clients (or they found me?) that value the work of a designer. There are just a few, but those are the ones that tell other people about my work. I have to work more on my conceptual thinking I had heard it before and itโ€™s true, design should be functional.
