Be keen. I got my job by asking... a few times. I worked in a corner shop before Dyson. I was studying and commercially developing for a few years on the side.

I used to put it down to luck, but thanks to the magic of linked in you can ask direct.

Thanks! I've been meeting a few people around the area I know that are in the field. Hopefully, I will be able to make a lot more connections in person and find out who to direct communication towards.
