A while ago, I wrote an article on creativity/arts in the business world, and questioned whether or not it was under valued or even discouraged in the business world. You can read the original article at the following link: www.soundmattersblog.com/creativityinbusiness However, the reason for my post, is that I was recently inspired to think about this
Over 300,000 people graduate from UK Universities each year, and the number of people going into higher education in England is at an all time high. One reason for this is more and more people recognise that a degree is the best investments an individual can make into their future and a rewarding career. However, this inevitably means that competition is fierce, and standing out from other graduates when searching for gainful employment is more important than ever. Yet often in the corporate world, creative capabilities are misunderstood, under valued and even discouraged in the recruitment process. So why is this?
