If you are a nurse or a doctor, you have to work in a bricks and mortar hospital or medical facility, although advances in technology have meant that other medical jobs and services can actually be carried out from a remote location. If you like the idea of being a medical transcriptionist, you can often work from home, providing information by phone or online to those who need it. Technology has helped to blur the lines between service and product and has opened up the doors to plenty of previously unimagined new industries and professions. A reusable product that provides content to users is the basis of much of today’s apps technology that manages to combine a service and a product.
Computer generated imagery, more commonly known as CGI is a good example of how advances in technology have created an innovative and creative product. CGI developers need to be constantly up to date with the latest technology and innovations in order to produce imaginative and great looking movies, video games and other images in high resolution. However, if you fancy a career in the exciting and often challenging world of CGI, you will constantly need to keep ahead of your competitors in the field, and simply producing high quality images isn’t sufficient. Anyone wanting to thrive in this industry will need to routinely produce content that is thought provoking enough to stand out from all the other images we are bombarded with daily.
The demand for skilled professionals is higher than ever and this trend shows no sign of slowing down. In addition to the demand for skilled people, the salaries for CGI jobs tend to be high, which in turn attracts more skilled and creative applicants. The job also allows those working in the industry to maintain that important work and life balance, and as long as the job is done, you probably won’t be expected to work strictly from 9am to 5pm. If you work in CGI, you can expect to be constantly improving, and this aspect of the industry also appeals to many creative people and ensures the job is never boring. It really isn’t an ordinary job, and if you enjoy a challenge, and consider yourself a creative and ambitious type of individual, a career in the ever changing world of CGI may be perfect for you.
