Gender has always been emphasised in business. No matter the profession, or position in a company, women have always been pushed aside by the men in their surroundings. However, gender should not be a factor that decides if one should get a job or promotion, or how much money they make. Women should be able to do whatever they want.
No matter the job, every woman should strive to be the best at what she does and not be afraid of anything. Moreover, until there is equality everywhere, all women should work together and help each other out.
When it comes to choosing a profession, it could be anything you set your mind to, whether it is IT or design of any kind, or even beauty and fashion. A little bit of courage and a few good ideas can get you a long way. All you have to do is be you and go forwards. Therefore, do not look back or show fear.
So, if you think that you are a creative, ambitious and a powerful woman, here are a few career suggestions for you. It doesn’t matter if you are a student, changing career paths or anything else, any of these could be the next big thing in your life.
1. Event planning
Are you organised and good with time management? Then perhaps, you could become an event planner. You could help others have the best birthdays, weddings or other parties. All you need is the right skill set, and love for planning. If you are new to this, maybe you could start planning a few events for your friends and have word of the mouth do its job. Moreover, you can showcase your work on your website or a professional blog.
Just make sure you present yourself the right way, like choosing the right outline and theme for the blog, as well as keeping the posts interesting. For example, present yourself and your work through photos and blog posts. Why is this important? Well, it can show off your diverse skills, such as design or detail planning, or your capacity to think of different ideas and event themes. In a way, this would be your online portfolio.
If you work smart and keep going, it can develop into something big. You can start from one city and then slowly conquer the whole country. Some people might consider this an unimportant job, but organising something takes a lot of time and knowledge, as well as patience. It is definitely an ambitious endeavour.
2. Landscape architect
If you are interested in architecture, and love nature, then this job is right for you. Not only will you get to play with landscape, but you can also get to enjoy the outdoors while doing it. Additionally, if you are interested in preserving the environment, being a landscape architect offers you a great chance to do so. You can build all green spaces, and give your contribution to this cause.
This position offers a lot of space for creativity, as you get to plan the outlines of gardens, parks, and other outdoor locations. You will be given a chance to create spaces of various designs, sizes, and all the rest. Furthermore, you can express yourself through your work, and maybe create something that will capture the interest of many people. Most certainly, you will not be the first woman landscape architect to ever do so. Who knows, perhaps you will create the next Central Park?
3. Game designer
You would think this profession is for boys only, but you would be very much in the wrong. In the recent years of game development, more and more women have started getting into it. It is a challenging job, without a doubt; it is based in the industry that is mostly reserved for men. However, that mould has started to crack, and the ladies have become a normal part of the gaming industry. So, if you are creative and like games, this is the job you should try out. Additionally, it is a challenge worth taking. You could show that women are capable designing games, too.
4. Makeup artist
This is the perfect opportunity if you are looking for a career change. It is easier now, more than ever, to become a makeup artist thanks to the rising interest in makeup. People love experimenting with it. They are able to create different daily looks, or something special such as character design. A makeup artist can do several types of jobs, such as working in a salon, on TV, theatre or special effects – just to name a few options. It has become such an essential part of our lives, that some women decide to get permanent makeup.
In the end, doing makeup is like painting, but the canvas is a human face. There is a lot of space for expressing yourself, turning your imagination and ideas into reality. Therefore, if you have always been into art then maybe you should try this out. With lots of online and physical schools of makeup artistry, it is very easy to get into it, no matter your age or education.
5. Interior designer
This is yet another great opportunity to express your imagination and possible ground-breaking ideas. If you are interested in architecture or design, perhaps this is the right profession for you. Being an interior designer, you could create so many things. For example, you can create stunning, elegant rooms, or try and make the most of a small space, in order to raise its functionality. It is a job that asks for problem solving skills, as well as great vision.
Not only is it an amazing job, that could take you all over the world, but it pays well, too. You could be decorating houses, villas, cabins or five star hotels. Basically, your office space could be anywhere your work sends you.
6. Fashion designer
This is particularly interesting, since you can do so much. The fashion world offers various options, like designing clothes for men or women, adults or children. You can even choose to do a cheap clothing line, or high fashion. Really, whatever you do, it will be solely your decision.
Even better, you could get into fashion in different ways, and at a different age. It doesn’t matter if you are changing your career, expanding from your fashion blog or just graduating – there are many opportunities awaiting. Plus, it is a job that could be easily enjoyed. If you are into art, fashion or have an eye for detail, and an admiration for all things beautiful – this could be your true calling.
And, maybe you will get to start your own company or become a very famous designer. Also, you will get to work with celebrities and models. Or, collaborate with another designer or fashion brand. You never know what the future holds.
In the end, starting your own business, or switching jobs, could be a difficult task, but not an impossible one. Believe in yourself and what you can do. Focus on success, and nothing else. If you need a push or two, here are a few quotes that could get you inspired, courtesy of some of the most famous businesswomen.
