Job Analysis

As a current Mass Communication student at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), I'm interested in pursuing a career that is both versatile and relevant in an ever changing and increasingly globalised job market. The following article analyses a Creative Director role (advertised by the digital marketing agency Resource Interactive) that I feel embodies the aforementioned requirements of my desired career.

I consider myself a natural leader in terms of my ability to motivate and encourage people to work together in challenging assumptions, formulating ideas and finding solutions. During my primary education, I attended a lateral thinking school that encouraged students to utilise logic and intuition when making decisions and new and old methodology when creating new concepts.
