For those who think with the right side of their brain there are numerous creative job choices. However, not every job is created equally and some are certainly poised to succeed more in the employment sector than others.
U.S. News and World Report lists public relations specialists at number one on their list for best creative jobs for 2013. According to the news source it doesn’t matter whether an individual is a press secretary, media specialist or communications director, this class of job offers definite perks. There are about 58,200 jobs available in this field in the United States and they have a median salary of $53,190. Where the position really shines is the unemployment rate – only 2.7 percent.
However, those positions are not the only creative industries with thriving employment figures.
“We’ve seen a surge of new job opportunities in the creative space requiring high-demand digital skills,” hiring expert Susie Hall, told MSN News. “Our fastest-growing areas are creative talent who bring strong user experience and frontend development skills, with growth rates of 51 and 75 percent respectively over the prior year.”
Design and user experience professionals are expected to have a good year in 2013. According to the news source, the average annual salary for a design expert is $81,000 and user experience $94,000. A user experience professional uses data to generate experiences for certain demographics or audiences. Using feedback and new strategies they tinker with already existing website mechanics to improve the user experience. These workers must have an expert level understanding of graphic design and web technology systems. A creative job agency can find positions for these professionals without a struggle as companies comb the market for skilled workers.
To accompany a streamlined web experience, companies are including expertly crafted content, which is why content developers are poised to have an exceptional year in 2013. MSN News reports that the average annual salary for a content writer is $70,000. These professionals develop online content by writing news articles, blog posts, promotional copy, e-newsletters, product descriptions and much more. In addition to their talented, grammatically correct copy, they ensure that each piece falls in line with the company brand and marketing strategies.
