Hi Jaemoni!

Thanks for the question. Most jobs involve some form of creativity. For example, a retail salesperson might design a more engaging product pitch, and a teacher might devise an innovative method of teaching to make the topic interesting and help students understand the concepts better.

In some occupations, creativity is an integral part of the job. Among these occupations are those for artists and related workers, designers, and media and communication workers. 

Please refer to the below link for a detailed list of jobs for creative people:


Hope this helps!

There are tons of careers. Teaching (at a variety of levels), working as a profession in any type of fine art (painting/drawing/writing), Graphic designers, illustrators, game design (video/board/table top rpg), television/movie writing, museum curators/educators. It really does depend on your interests. Find what you like and how you want to use your creative skills.

I studied painting in my undergrad with a minor in art history. To this day I try to continue to work as a painter selling my art, and use my love of art to teach and study art history. I get to use my passion for art to allow it to fill my life in all aspects.

Hi Jaemoni! I'm a graphic designer and I love it. I work for a corporate office, so I have normal business hours, but get to be creative for most of the day. If you are interested in creativity and the arts, I'd suggest taking tutorials online in different fields to learn about which creative job you would most be interested in pursuing. Check out websites like skillshare.com or lynda.com that showcase different creative tutorials and careers.
