Creative Job Fairs Do Exist!

Guest Post by Laurence Girard

Most career fairs are not centered around helping people find creative jobs in fields such as the arts and music. Even online job sites do not focus on helping people find jobs in creative industries. The fact that career fairs do not focus on creative jobs makes it increasingly difficult for someone to break into a career in the music or arts industry. If you just do a little bit of research, you will be surprised to find out that there are some job fairs that focus entirely on helping people find creative jobs in industries such as the music and the arts.

For the past three years, the Creative Career Fairs in England have been run, and over 1,000 young people attended the fairs in hopes in starting a career in a creative job. These fairs offer one-on-one advice on education, training and jobs in the arts as well as other creative industries. The Creative Career fairs are funded by the Arts Council England, East and have been extremely successful over the past couple of years. If you are sick of going to work in a suit everyday and working from nine to five day in and day out, switching into a creative career might be the right choice for you.

If you are a creative person that likes to think outside the box you should be following your passion and working in a creative career! It is important that you use your creative talents and go to work everyday doing what you love. Whether you want to be a dancer, an artist, or work as a professional musician, creative job fairs can help you talk to professionals that want to help you reach your goals! The Creative Jobs Fairs are run every year in England and help thousands of young people find new creative jobs that they love doing!
