The closer I get to graduation, the more nervous I get about that transition from being a student to being an employee. Though I think I excel in professionalism and productivity, The AIGA Guide to Careers in Graphic & Communication Design by Juliette Cezzar discusses the transition and how it isn't structured the same. I realize I will still have to learn, as I don't know everything, but I find myself very concerned with my standing and comparing myself to others. Cezzar explains that "rather than comparing yourself to others, focus on your own progress."
I find myself getting caught up in everything but my own progress. Sometimes I find myself becoming stagnant in my design and as I move through the rest of my career as a student, I want to try to better myself and push myself to learn new things and work on my own progress.
