Hey that's an interesting question but the problem here is answering it.


Every field requires some amount of creativity.
The more one follows the laid down rules and regulations, the more failure or rather disastrous it would be.At the same time work becomes quite monotonous and one begins to loose interests then.
This does not mean that creativity is not a separate field.

Now here, you would have to take a call, whether you are creative when it comes to:
Drawing /Designing
Writing

Depending on the above mentioned point, you can choose your field.

If you are good with sketches or drawing or creating ART work, means that you have good visualization capacity, i.e, you can see through things, which are not present.
This skill is very important in the field such as:
As an architect, you would be given a plot andideasby the builder and basedon his description, you would have toforeseeinyourmind amodeland put it on paper.
Similarlywith designing and other mentioned fields.

If you are good with writing, then you have options like:

Mainly as a writer, your main role would be to convince the reader through your writing skills, but it must not seem manipulative but the message needs to reach the masses.

Apart from this another area which makes maximum utilization of creativity these days is "The GamingIndustry".
Social Media Manager
The gaming industry encompasses mainly both Designing as well as writing.
As a Gamer, your main role would be tocreategames that would appeal tothe masses, and at the same time, you need catchy music and words. At the same time it has to be visually effective and when you market it, the graphic used while advertising again is important.
Though you wont be handling all the areas in gaming, but creativity is one big game.
So knowledge about all areas is a must.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you good luck..........

Dear Aspirant,

For many creative individuals out there, true satisfaction in life comes from creating something new. Whether designing a video game, painting a picture, or making a beautiful video, it is easy to say that these individuals are happiest when they are creating. When they can find a job that lets them be creative, they are able to make money doing something they really love, and that makes all of the difference in their lives.

The new age of technology that we live in gives creative individuals more opportunities than ever to express that creativity. More and more jobs are becoming available in the creative field, with wealthier people moving away from factories and manufacturing in the developed world. These new jobs are usually based upon skill sets developed in the workplace, or through formal education. There are many different jobs where a creative individual can take their skills and make themselves valuable to a company, or better yet, start a company of their own.

  1. Graphic Designer
  2. Advertising Specialist
  3. Videographer
  4. Game Designer
  5. Instructional Designers

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar
