Hello friends! Welcome to my new blog. In my previous blog, I told you that I am pursuing Digital Media Production at Confederation College, in Thunder Bay. I told in detail what I learned in my 2nd and 3rd semester. Today, in this blog I am going write about jobs opportunities that graduates of Digital Media production have.
Before telling you about jobs opportunities, I would like to give a short summary of what a DMP student get to learn in this program. A student learns techniques and knowledge to handle equipment like camera, mic, tripods and much more. Importance of lighting in a shoot is taught in this program. He/she learns all aspects of videography, photography, cinematography in this program. A student is taught how to make graphic and 3D logos. Alongside this, web designing is also taught to students. At the end of study, a student acquires all required knowledge to produce a live interactive show and podcast. What content there should be in a vlog or blog to make it successful, is taught to students. Personality and professionalism is developed in a student in this program. Student are taught how to handle social media accounts to promote a business/brand. Students of this program can easily edit photographs and videos with the latest software. A student learns how to write news scripts and become better storytellers including the ethical and social responsibilities that go along with it. A student gains knowledge of sound design here. A student learns how to develop his/her own brand and learn how to position himself/herself in the job market. To the gist of the matter, there is a lot of things a student learns in this program.
So now you have a good idea that a student in this program learns many things. Similarly, a student has many paths after this study. Graduates have two options; starting their own business or working for other companies. If we talk about starting their own business, a graduate can become a YouTube blogger, start photography, pre-wedding shoots or shoots at parties. They can also earn money with the help of podcasts. Moreover, making documentaries is also a good way to earn money. If he/she wants to work for a company, then there are lots of opportunities. Graduates can work as a script writer, journalist, and storyteller for a news company. Options to enter then film industry is also available, where he/she can show his/her videography and cinematography skills. Moreover, he/she can also become an editor for film industry by adding compositing and visual effects in the movies. Graduates can work for a promotion company or handle social media accounts of companies/brands. Graduates can work for radio/web station where he/she can help as a crew member or as a director to stream live interactive shows. Doors of music industry are also open for DMP graduates as they know art of sound, and can create their own sound effects.
