WEEK 7 BLOG
This week's readings engaged with creative industries and careers within them. Although the creative
industries contribute significantly to the Australian economy, the difficulties of building a sustainable
careers in these industries remain challenging. Further, existing workers within these industries are
challenged to build self management skills whilst also dealing with the straining nature of their jobs.
The reading also mentioned networking as a critical element towards career success. I really enjoyed
reading the readings for week 11 and noted many points for my own career development.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend our last class for the semester due to being sick for many days
prior. Although I was unable to attend the class, I looked at the class activities and attempted them
on my own. I reviewed my own LinkedIn information and profile, allowing for improvements to be
made. I improved on my self introduction and layout of my CV.
