Michael recommends the following next steps:
Well, first of all, you'll need to create a portfolio of your best projects during your college years. As designers we always focus on details, so don't just put your information and skills, design your presentation in a way that is interesting and nice to look at, this is how you gain interest from recruiters and you may stand out from the other applicants. (that's very important because it shows them that you are willing to impress).
Nowadays, there is a lot of competition, so it is not easy to find a first job right away. What worked for me as soon as I graduated from college was that I started designing things for my family and friends, so that way I had previous experiences on my resume when I applied for my first interview. It turned out very well because they hired me and I also received calls from my friends and family contacts to design their spaces, so I started off pretty well with two jobs!
