Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities
Create Your Own Job is a short, to the point manual for making your ideas happen. It’s filled with practical advice about applying for funding and setting up projects, as well as details of the organisations you’ll need to register with and community groups you should consult. The zine’s rational step-by-step approach makes it a helpful introduction for anyone who’s new to project development, especially if you’re fed up of filling out the same old job applications. Caroline points out that “Most of the knowledge I use in my job now I learned from being an activist, volunteering for various environmental NGOs and from studying permaculture.” So recent graduates can stop feeling daunted by the idea that their degree isn’t “relevant” “ you’ll pick up all the knowledge you need along the way.
