Demand for graphic designers is at an all-time high right now, and opportunities are opening up everywhere. So whether you’re a new graduate or an old-hand looking for better prospects, it’s time to start trawling through job boards and finding the vacancies that fit your particular skill set.

You want to be thorough, so it pays to visit a lot of sites and make sure your dream job doesn’t slip through the net.

At Shillington, where we train students for a career in graphic design through intensive full-time or part-time courses, we know a thing or two about getting designers into jobs. So in this article, we bring you 20 sites that can help you do just that.
