Brendan's insight:

One of the focal points of this article is the fact that creative-minded and imaginative people are the most effective contributors to innovation in the United States. The author points out that careers in these fields have unemployment rates slightly above the overall average of 9% for graduates. After reading the points that the author has in the article, I really do believe this number should be much lower. If it weren't for creative-minded and imaginative people, we could still be using a printing press to produce literature. The article mentions that a medical professor believes that students with 'right brain' qualities tend to be more successful in "today's digital, image-based world of medicine." Not only is this true in medicine, it is equally important in countless other industries. Overall I believe employers should take creativity into some consideration when hiring new employees.

Brendan's insight:

This article has allowed me to read about first hand experiences people have had in freelance careers instead of "real jobs". Max Stern, as mentioned in the article, is a musician and graphic designer from Cleveland State University who had no idea what he would be doing after college. He eventually ended up doing graphic design projects for clients on his own time as a freelance designer, which is just one of many creative fields that I am currently trying to narrow down. Although the idea of working whenever you want and choosing, in a way, the people that you choose to work with pleases me, I am not sure about the fact that you never know where money will be coming from. You could have a really good month with a lot of work coming in but the next month could be scarce in terms of work and income. Just that idea alone makes me not want to do freelance work, unless it is side-income as a suplement to an actual job at a company. While some, like Max Stern, can pull it off well and make a decent living, I don't believe that this career would be the best fit for me. I would much rather have a consistent income on a regular basis than not know how much money I will be making at the end of every week, month, year, etc. What I have learned from this article is that freelance work is something I can cross off my list of creative field options.

Kole Kostelic came out of CSU with a graphic design degree and a hope of finding a career in it.
Brendan's insight:

After reading this article by Kelsey Shroyer, I believe that the information is valuable for my personal research. I found the article interesting to read and I feel it can relate to anyone going into any industry and not just design. The article begins by saying that many college students are fearful that their college education will not be useful at all by the time that they are looking for a real-world job. Kole Kostelic, as quoted in the article, states that he was scared of not knowing where he would end up after his college education. I was personally in the same mindset as of about a year ago, when I wanted to go into architecture. I soon realized that I am terrible at math and that’s a different story. I figured out eventually that a creative field would be the best fit for me. The only question now is what type of graphic design job I would like to pursue. What I took from reading the article, however, is that you do not necessarily have to pinpoint a specific type of degree to pursue a career in the design field. Kole Kostelic was able to land a job at a company where he ended up doing work that he didn’t specifically go to school for, but It was in a similar creative field so it all worked out well for him. The author states that “dream worthy success after college is possible” and I really do believe this is true.
