Brief description of the Project Although talent is the most important asset of design industry, it is usually difficult for fresh graduates to get the first job as normally they lack relevant practical experience which is the essential requirement for many employers. It is significant for fresh graduates with proper training to find a right job within 2-3 years after graduation; otherwise, the related discipline training will be wasted, indeed, that is a great loss for Hong Kong. Same problem happens in other creative industries like digital entertainment and digital advertising. There exists a fresh graduate support scheme in the above two industries which proofed to be helpful to the industries. In view of these, Hong Kong Designers Association proposes to organize the Design Graduates Employment Supporting Scheme. The design graduates employment support scheme will assist design companies to recruit new blood and nurture talent more easily with subsidy, training, promotion and online platform support as well as help fresh graduates enter the industry.
