We’ll talk more about our affordable career discovery platform a little later, but not before we get a sneak peek about creativity in the professional sphere from someone who’s displayed oodles of it for years - a hugely successful beauty entrepreneur and social media star called Mel!

Blending business acumen with exceptional creativity, Mel is a living testament to what’s possible when you put your mind to it. Of course, it starts with knowing exactly why creativity is important. So, let’s get to it and look at why it's a skill that will take you far.

How is Creativity a Useful skill for Your Career?

There’s no getting around the fact that creativity is something of a game-changer in the working world, particularly in the modern day. Being creative is not just about being able to paint or draw, as the skill can also relate to being able to think outside the box and solve problems in ways that other people aren’t able to. You could say it’s about bringing fresh ideas to the table.

In pretty much all of the career options out there, the ability to innovative and adapt is a crucial one. Being creative helps you to stand out from your peers, meaning that it’s key in the competitive job market where the fresh-thinkers can offer something new and effective.

Creative Abilities Develop With Use

Melanie Burnicle teaches creativity to everyone she works with and she’ll tell you that it’s a skill that grows with use. The more you challenge yourself to think differently, the better you become at it. It’s a skill that can take you further in your career and give you opportunities that simply might not be accessible in the traditional way.

At a time in history where automation and A.I. are reaching new heights, one area in which they still need human input is in the creative realm. This makes these skills even more valuable and sought-after in the workforce. It also allows for personal expression and the satisfaction of seeing your unique ideas come to life. Embracing creativity isn't just preparing for a job - it’s preparation for an exciting future in whatever field you choose.

How Melanie Burnicle Teaches Creativity

So, without further delay, let’s get to those snippets of wisdom you’ve been waiting for and find out a bit how Melanie Burnicle teaches creativity. Let’s see what she had to say about working in the creative sector and what’s required.

“What are the challenges of working in the creative industries?”

“In the creative sector, there can be many forms of rejection. For most, rejection is a negative experience as they're not receiving the desired outcome at that moment. It could be a creative pitch that is knocked back, or a brief that needs changing as it no longer works for the clients.

On the other hand, if you’re a performer, they may be looking for a different take on the performance. There are so many varying factors for why you or the idea is rejected at that moment. You have to remain confident that your creative flair will pull you through”.

“Did you ever doubt your own creative abilities?”

“Yes! Early on in my career, I had a lot of doubt that I wasn't good enough or I wasn't enough in general.There were many moments along my 25-year journey which told me to stop, slow down and ask the question, Who am I?

For many years my identity was tied to a need to be the best, or 'it's not enough'. I would reach a goal and not even acknowledge the hard work I'd done but be on to the next because I had to be more or do more.

My advice is to celebrate the small steps, the little things each day, ticking the boxes, and really enjoying all of the stepping stones. It's a much more satisfying way of working. I had to learn to change my perspective.”
