Myth: There are no jobs for artists in tech


100% myth! Industries like gaming, music, fashion and art thrive on artists to develop designs and graphics for their websites, mobile apps, games and marketing campaigns. There are ample opportunities to combine your inner artist with a digital edge to gain an in-demand skill set in the digital economy. Most new jobs in Canada right now are created for multimedia professionals, graphic designers and illustrators, according to the Information and Communications Technology Council’s (ICTC) monthly snapshot report (January 2013).

All industries and sectors are hiring artistic people to create cool digital content for websites and design mobile apps. Combine your passion with some tech skills and have yourself a rewarding career!
