Mark’s Answer

Hey Yali! Being creative is a mindset and something you can apply to everything you do. Most job functions would benefit from a creative employee, someone who can imagine possibilities and identify a better way to accomplish greater impact. A few examples:
- a line cook, who reorganizes their station to be more efficient
- an office manager, who decides a certain process is clunky or could be managed more effectively
- a software developer, who can suggest a simpler approach for accomplishing a similar goal

That said, some professions more explicitly require creative output. UI and UX software designers, illustrators, marketing executives.. These are examples of roles that may be responsible for creating visual designs with tools like Photoshop, Figma, Video editing, etc..

Hi Yali,

My mom is an interior designer, but is not good at drawing at all; This also allows her to show her creative side. You can also look into marketing, communications, public relations, along with graphic design. Although, if you go into graphic design, you will have to take some drawing classes for your university requirement. I would definitely do some informational interviews, once you have narrowed down your list to a couple of different areas in the creative field, and see what you like and don't like. Also, speak to your professors, the career center, and maybe your academic advisor, and they can give you some advice on other creative avenues.

Hope that helps!

I would think that writing, journalism, and acting (including voice acting) would give you productive avenues for being creative within your career field.

Cari’s Answer

There are many creative jobs out there. In the corporate world, the following fields of examples of jobs that require creativity: marketing, advertising, instructional design, event planning, applications development, corporate communications, and project management.
If the corporate world is not what you had in mind, you can teach, become an artist, actor, musician, dancer, hair stylist, make-up artist, sculptor, jewelry maker, sculptor, architect, chef, baker, fashion designer, stage/set designer, work in construction or build homes, painter, or interior decorator.
My daughter is actually an artist and does pop up shows all over Atlanta. She is currently working on her Master’s at SCAD. While doing this she has worked with several mediums. She is a print maker by trade but has also created murals at several restaurants in the Atlanta area, and even helped with one at the Mercedes stadium. I am sharing this just as an example of how diverse art and being creative can be.
I hope this helps!

Dada’s Answer

Interior designers specialize in particular types of buildings, such as homes, hospitals, or hotels;
specific rooms, such as bathrooms or kitchens; or a specific style
You can work at Construction Companies. Entry-level jobs within the same types of company will give an insight into the context in which the company operates and enable you to make contacts. For instance, a shop assistant job may build your knowledge of the retail industry and enable you visual merchandising team
- This leverages to specify materials and furnishings, such as lighting, furniture, wall finishes, flooring, and plumbing fixtures,
Create a timeline for the interior design project and estimate project costs.

All the Best Yali :)
