Since graduating from university 12 years ago, I’ve had six unique jobs in four different industries. And I’ve loved them all for their own reasons. All this variety has limited my depth in each industry, but has given me a breadth and a set us transferrable skills that I know will continue to serve me well.
But, there has been something missing in all of these areas – art. They all involved working with different people, working on different projects and stepping outside my comfort zone to some degree, but none of them involved art. And don’t give me that blah blah “you can find art in anything” blah blah. The industries were health care, banking, government and property management. I found fun and learning in all of them, but not art.
