[one_half last='yes' class=' id=']In the back of your mind you have a deep yearning to be creative. You might have some skill in illustration, storytelling or working with computers. You may be experimenting with film making, or have a passion to work in the ever growing video game industry. You want to be surrounded by creative people and ultimately be able to gain employment in a job that will allow you to use your digital skills on a daily basis. What do you do?[/one_half]
“Education is an investment and you shouldn't spend time and money on something you don't love”Ask any person in the working world, regardless of the industry and they will respond that happiness in your job will translate to happiness in your life. It sounds like a cliché but if you choose to go into a field that doesn’t get your heart racing, you may end up regretting it rather quickly into your working career.If you are a creative person, the growing field of digital media offers numerous options that can lead to all sorts of job opportunities. The world of digital media is great as it allows to you take traditionally manual tasks and expand them rapidly using a range of amazing computer programs and distribution methods. Choose to study a field that will capitalise on your strengths and passions, and your studies are now an extension of your interests, not a boring chore.
“I love being creative and thinking ‘outside of the box’. I enjoy coming up with ideas in my head and making them into a reality. I realised that I could never work in a ‘traditional’ field. It doesn’t excite me and I would be wasting my talents. That is why I like the environment at AIT. It’s not as strict as university. Universities can be quite bleak, grey and confined whereas here it’s really open and colourful. You have the freedom to express yourself. It is a fantastic creative space that is helping me realise my potential.”
