    I am a graduate with a good degree in a computer related subject. I have been learning flash and dreamweaver etc for about 6 months properly now and am trying to get a job as a junior web designer of some sort.
    The problem is that i dont have enough experience, but i am positive that given the opportunity i could be good. Check out my site and tell me what you think if you have the time (click on footer).

    Does anyone, living in the UK, know of anything which could help me i.e. specialist recruitment firms, sympathetic employers, anything like that.
    I am not stupid, i just need a chance.

    If anyone can give me any advice i would be very grateful.

    If you think the problem is that you don't have enough experience, I suppose that could be self fulfilling. On the other hand, People who are 24 get jobs running offices in the White House, running corprations, etc.

    Keep looking. And keep meeting people - trade groups, volunteer, whatever.

    Others here will have more info on agencies, etc.

    Meanwhile, keep learning how to tell stories. Read "The Agony and the Ecstasy" and see how Michaelangelo did it.

    And understand, too - Flash is an expensive solution to problems people can often achieve with HTML, a radio ad, or a print flier.

    Think a lot about what kind of stories you want to tell and how you will become unique at telling them.

    darkstar, i have just had a look at your site and was wondering whether i could be of any use to you. i see you do audio streaming and flash web design.
    well i write music and design web sites so maybe we could talk.
    dunno, think it over and getr back to me.

    cheers
