I think this a great article and a good point to bring up. We can learn all we want about design but if we aren’t paying attention to the market and industry, we aren’t going to get jobs where we can utilize what we’ve learned anyway. It’s also good to be taught the purpose of problem solving. This is why I a at KCAI. The previous school that I went to mainly focused on technical (how to do stuff) and not what to do or why you are doing it.
Wow, I love that there is a list out there like this that we can gauge ourselves on. If we can one day look at this and feel comfortable with all of these…wow… imagine the confidence level we’d have when going to a job interview. A MUST HAVE!
