You’ve seen it in the movies and TV shows--the stereotype of the “struggling creative” trying to live out their passions and only just getting by, waiting for their big break. While those depictions are, of course, exaggerated (we try not to take too much offense), the link between creatives and unemployment is not exactly a new one. In fact, Creative Pool reported last year that nearly half of currently unemployed creatives lost their jobs due to the pandemic.
Not only present is the rampant issue of unemployment but also the problem with underemployment which refers to people working, but not in their full capacity and potential. Many local creatives have to settle for lower-paying jobs--sometimes in part-time or contract roles without the stability of full-time work--due to the lack of better job opportunities. Additionally, they have to deal with cut throat competition in an industry already smaller than most.
Additionally, the nature of finding work within creative industries is not sustainable for the future of collaborative work. Creatives often find work through word-of-mouth and personal referrals which are ineffective and unreliable, especially for those with very few or no connections to discover opportunities. Similarly, traditional professional networking platforms do not cater to creatives, making the process of job searching a cluttered and confusing one.
