> Im studying draphic design
> From Spain (high unemployment rate)
> There's no fucking possibilities of work as graphic designer
> Being "freenlance" isn't an option
And here comes the great question: Which country could be better to work as graphic designer?
(Pic of a shitty design from this morning)
Most likely China, but since you do not speak Chinese you are fucked anyway and the salary is going to be worse than you would've made even at a shitty job in Spain. However, as Chinese schools do not value creative classes as it can lead to "rebellious behavior" not many Chinese people are creative beyond the traditional arts and a lot of their graphic design, architecture etc. are actually western foreigners.
Just apply to fucking everything, even internships. Do internships while you are studying even if you do not consider yourself to have the time.
Thanks dude, it is an option when i get experience in travelling and in chinese speaking Hahaha... I think that i need to mature for get a organized life and planning some internships to foreign countries. Did you travel to other country to work as graphic designer?
I suppose that the easiest way to get a job is go straight to a printing office, design center or something like this, carrying your designer portfolio, Cv and cover letter and ask
the one in charge, and well...Have a talk with him. I am too idealistic?
Yeah, originally from Sweden. Got headhunted for a bureau in New York, then they sent me to Paris and looks like I'll be going to Shanghai next. Can't say my pay has been good but I've had a shitton of luck as the company has paid for my housing So I've lived like a queen everywhere. But then again, I can also see why I was anatural choice. My ex boyfriend was French, so I picked up some French there although English was mostly used in The bureau in Paris. I was the only one who knew any Chinese (two years of evening courses at university) so naturally they did not really have any better choice. If it's something I've learnt is that; learn everything and keep improving. Web is very important now. But apart from designing, learn other stuff because it becomes valueable. The technicality of printing, how the machine actually works, calligraphy (helps a ton to understand why some fonts are awful but is also a neat skill to have), languages are always a plus, even just a little bit of it, CMS, e-Pub, photography, copywriting, 3D etc. There is so much to learn apart from just the ability to design and your employer would rather hire a person who knows a bit of everything than someone who is an expert in one thing.
Minneapolis/St. Paul is a nice place to look for work, too. We got some big industries, smaller design firms, and great beer.

OP admitted that this wasn't a highlight. Cut him/her some slack.
OP, would you consider letting us see some of your better work before we tell you you suck?
>Not to mention being the countries leading in graphic design when it comes to the quality and style
Swiss hasn't done shit since the 1950's but did put out the ground work for modern typography so some applause for that can be given.
Scandinavia is where it's at. Although it may not actually happen in Scandinavia, I shit you not when I say that there will be a Scandinavian employee at every top bureau in the western world as of today.
And this is other design to an insurance agency called "Arthur Insurance". I chose the medieval theme to throughout the company corporate image for one reason: safety and protection typical from the middle age, also was chosen because of the "boom" of medieval series as GOT or Vikings. Somehow i thought that it could help to be known and remembered,
