Jobs That Get Your Creative Juices Flowing
If you’re a creative one of sorts and would like to look into the possibility of using the skills and talents that you have, every day within your career – good for you. Although it may not be as simple as you might have imagined, it will take you on one exciting journey, and you are bound to learn a lot about the industry (and yourself) along the way.
Here are a few examples of the creative jobs out there.
If you love to paint, sculpt or carve, then why not consider a career as an artist? It’s by no means a great paying job to begin with – you really have to put in a ridiculous amount of your time and effort – but that’s just part of the game. Then one day you may get your big break, and people will start mentioning your name, and you will get commissions coming in left, right and center to make unique art pieces for them. That’s the dream. But with being an artist comes great risk, as it doesn’t always end that way. You may find yourself working nonstop, doing hundreds of little jobs just so that you can afford to eat. That’s the ugly truth of being a freelance artist. But if you believe in yourself and your talent – why not take the risk?
If you have a passion for fashion, then this is the job for you. From creating new patterns and designs for an upcoming line, all the way to managing the sector and getting in touch with different designers for new projects and trends – it won’t be an easy job. You will be expected to strive in a fast-paced environment, while having great communication and interpersonal skills, and of course having an incredible eye for detail on ‘what’s hot’ this season.

Do you love everything about music? Are you constantly tapping your fingers to your own beats, or humming a tune that you’ve just come up with? Then maybe you should take it one step further. It helps if you already play an instrument, but it’s never too late to learn. Guitar, drums, piano or even your voice – get working on it and take lessons – even if you already know how to play, there is always room for improvement. There are so many other musicians out there, so you need something that’s unique about you and your music. Something that people will hear and know exactly who you are.
Whether you’re in a band or flying solo, go to open mic nights (look on irenejackson.com/songblog for a few tips for your first time) – the more recognition you get, the better. You may even be approached to sing in a local bar every Saturday night. – This is where it all begins…
Whatever your passion may be, as long as you’re doing something that you love, then you have already won.
