Week 1 Exploration: Job Listings

Position # 1 – Creative Strategist at True (X) 

I think this job would be a great fit for me because it encompasses all of my different skills and career goals. They with the top creative agencies, media agencies, and brands to adapt campaigns into effective interactive engagement ads that educate, entertain, and motivate consumers while delivering on brand objectives. I feel like I would be a good candidate because a lot of the job description says applies to my experience with media, both school as well as my professional experience.

Position # 2 – Digital Designer at C-Spire

I chose this job because it requires the kind of work I want to create – digital design – including print material, social images, emails. I think this would be a great fit since it is mainly designing creative work that is focused on the end-user.

Position # 3 – Studio Designer at Glass Agency

This listing also speaks to the king of work I want to do in the future. What stood out to me is that I would get to work directly with the Creative Director, Art Directors and Designers; which means that I would have great mentors.

It looks like it is more of “production” work, which means that I would be taking high quality creative concepts and adapting it to different media. I feel like I would be a great candidate because of my skillset acquired in the past few months such as Adobe Creative Cloud (required for this position).
