BrandPie's Marie Larsen offers networking tips to help you get into the creative industries.

Trying to get into the creative industries is like off-road cycling in the mountains, all by yourself with no map to guide you through the terrain. You have to figure it out as you go. 

"There's a lot to do to land the job of your dreams, besides just studying it."

When cycling in the mountains you are constantly trying to follow a path someone else has been before you, with no promise of where it might lead you. Being creative and trying to get into the creative industries is a rocky road, and you have to be able to handle mud on your knees and sore hands from trying to steer the wheels in the right direction.
