A few weeks ago we launched our Creative Futures report, which looked at people in the creative industry and how they were prepared to take pay cuts and self fund their own training if it meant getting ahead in their careers.
This week we’re releasing some new stats from the report which show creative pros won’t stand still when it comes to their careers. According to our research, 57 per cent of creative pros believe the economic climate has caused them to think about a career change. And it seems many will take big steps to land their dream job - over a third of those surveyed agreed they would consider giving up work to develop their skills further.
No matter what is happening in the economy, it seems having the right job is still important. There is a tendency when times are tough to accept unhappy compromises in your careers, but our research shows creative pros won’t make this sacrifice. What steps have you taken to change careers or get more training to get the right job? I'd love to hear your stories.
