Working is a weird thing. Some of us end up in jobs we love that give meaning and fulfillment to our working life while constantly applying a sense of accomplishment.
For others, it’s just a sense of clocking in, and clocking out.
It depends on who you are, to be honest. If you’re fulfilled by completing tasks, any job may suit you. But if you aren’t, you’ll struggle until you finally stumble across a role that is right for you. Stumbling through life isn’t perhaps the best thing to do – we all need plans!
Look to your talents and interests to propel you through life. That applies to your working career as well. Relying on our talents can create an unprecedented interest in our jobs and will naturally make us happier – if you’re good at something, you should do it.
This time around, the focus is on creativity. If you have an imagination or interests – it’s likely that you have an underlying creative talent. It might be writing, teaching, speaking, drawing or painting – but it will definitely be there. If you know what it is, you should charge forth.
For instance, if you’re good at design, joining an advertising agency might be a great move for you. You’ll get to do what you’re good at while getting paid by clients. It’s win-win, and while some projects may be a lot less inspirational or unique than you may hope, it is still a job that uses your talents! What’s more, design can take you into a role as your own boss – you could create graphics for clients on a freelance basis or even hawk your designs to buyers. Using new tech like 3D printers is a great way to jump ahead of the curve and forge your own path by selling your own, unique goods. How much does a 3D printer cost? Well, it’s whatever you’re willing to pay to succeed with it! Cost is relative here.
If you’ve got an ear for sound, there are plenty of roles across a scope of industries – you could get work with a record label producing artists or even a role at a firm that creates radio adverts. Audio editing is a real skill and like design you might even find you can do it from home.
The final method is the most classic. Art can take you into the hands of a design firm or an advertising agency, but like the other two subjects – you can be your own boss. If you’re actually any good at art, you could find yourself displaying it at a gallery or getting commissioned for a piece.
You’ve still got to put the work in on all these fronts. Creativity is going to rely on you selling your abilities, a lot – so you’ve got market yourself soundly. If you get yourself out there, you’ll find the opportunities to use your skills and talents for an enjoyable career that may take you far!
