Your Career

Growth Mindset

Due to rapidly changing technology and expanding creative markets, digital creatives will need to adopt a growth mindset and be continuously learning new skills. However, in this industry, often the team's priority is shipping the project rather than building skills and capabilities. How can you progress in your career and find opportunities for growth?

It's vital to think about regularly taking stock to reaffirm where you want to go on your career journey, evaluating reskilling opportunities and industry relevance. Remember to respecc!
 

As a creative, I want to know what skills and knowledge are required to succeed at various types of work and how to grow in my career

 

  • I want access to training or professional development to help me succeed

  • I want to have support for all of the different skill sets that I don’t have as a creative, like potentially marketing, social media, operations, and people management.

  • I want access to experts who can help me identify skills / knowledge gaps in my experience and better prepare me for success.
