Creative industries are not only about fashion and art - Relevant industries are a lot more diverse and inclusive than you could have imagined. There is a wide range of skillsets demanded by global firms especially in the digitalised era nowadays. There must be a career path that will suit your passion and skillsets ranging from music, sports, film, content creation, or simply a start-up with a creative idea. Creative industries set no limitations on your academic background but only require passion and a creative mind! Many of you might have first heard that you could contribute to a music streaming company as a User Experience Researcher with a background of PhD in social science! As you develop creativity and imagination, we will strive to build a platform for you to best utilise your strengths together with hobbies and interests, and discover suitable career paths for you.
As a newly-created society (founded in 2022), we aim to draw attention to a wider range of career paths/possibilities. We seek to construct a platform for those who want to gain insights into the creative industry and explore the potential opportunities of incorporating your hobbies/interests into your career. Moreover, We want our society to be a place for students to meet/know like-minded friends in the creative industries.
Our member-exclusive activities will focus on the following categories in the coming 2023/24 year:
· Career talk/workshops- - To invite professionals & LSE alumni from firms to speak about new career opportunities and share their background in order to advise on career development
· Social events - planning group visits to exhibitions & film festivals, if possible, tours to firms, holding social events with other societies & unis e.g. ucl,ual,kcl etc…
· Newsletter - members of our society will receive weekly newsletter with updates on intern/volunteering opportunities, student written articles on industry news..(lasts trends, area of interests, introduction about characteristics of brands etc..) and workshop information
We are also more than delighted to meet all society members on-campus in the forthcoming year, and all events will be provided with a livestream link in case anyone could not make it.
