Digital cross training: Jack of all trades, master of tons.
I went to aÂ SixdegreesÂ networking event last week, and on the surface it was your typical networking event. They had a few speakers from freelancers to directors of agencies who spoke about managing freelancers and how to excel past the competition.
The second speaker Ryan Loi, Creative Director of Whitewood Creative CompanyÂ tackled the topics of excelling past your competition by cross training for different skills. He talked about how he started out as an designer and moved to photography then makeup. As a result, those three skills in combination are highly valued. This resulted in him having a very diverse portfolio and being very marketable.
Whether you are looking for freelance work or employment the talent bar has been raise. Soâ€¦.How do you make sure you excel as well?
