Jobs?

Hey everyone...what's up... I was wondering about a few things, I found instructables about a year ago through readymade magazine and website, I love creative things like this. Except I'm not so creative. I kind of come to this website to cheat, I just make things people have posted and show you how to make, lol. Anyways, I'm 20 years old, live in Kansas, and I'm going to school currently to get my degree in Entrepreneurship, I couldn't think of anything more exciting. I'm in the process of a business startup involving a t-shirt line, and even if it doesn't work out in the end, I'd love to have my own business one day.... Which brings me to my question, where do all of you amazing DIYers work? Boring places, just to pay the bills, or somewhere cool where your DIY skills got you the hook up?

Jobs for the Creative Techs?

I love studying electronics and doing creative things with electricity. I was an artist/musician throughout all of my youth and decided to switch over to creative electronics after discovering the art of circuit bending. I want to get a degree involving creative applications of electricity, but I'm having trouble getting a clear picture of what the job market is going to be like after i graduate. I am wondering what creative positions are available, not just with Instructables but in general. Are there any particular companies that would be good to look into? I'm trying to plan my degree so that it will be appealing to the companies i want to work for. I was an artist before i was a tech/engineer so I'm particularily interested in things such as product design, creative tech projects, animatronics, sculpture and art/music installations. Any advice would be great, I'm eager to find a job that will require my creativity and that isn't mundane. Is creativity something that is reserved to be expressed in my spare time or can it exist within the job market as well?

The Bravery of Being Out of Range: A Technological Revolution

The 18th century gave us the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Purpose-built factories for the new industries such as iron and textiles. New and improved methods of transportation, communication and production. It changed the way people lived / worked and it created / inspired a lot of what we still see and use today. This revolution had its negatives too. Jobs were lost to the industrial machines that did it better and faster, the poor and the working classes often had to endure grim living and working conditions. The black gold mined from underground, fuelled our thirst for advancement. Now in the 21st century, we are in the midst of the Technological Revolution. Ubers, drone deliveries, driverless cars and trucks, AI, Google, Facebook, Amazon Alexa, unmanned military vehicles, war by remote control and the bravery of being out of range. The drones, AI, robots and automation may not only take away our jobs, but potentially the need to leave the house or to have any real-world face to face interactions. They could re-define our lives, for better or for worse. Are you fearful? Wary? Or do you embrace the changes going on all around us?

My day job in fast motion.

I have my own business painting murals and doing custom art for clients in commercial and private spaces. Here's a time lapse I did a while back. Thought it was fitting here in the art section. This ceiling is roughly 16 feet by 14 feet in size, and the center of the ceiling is about 17 feet high. I actually painted this ceiling twice because the original owners sold the residence and the new owners wanted a new and different mural in the space, about twelve years apart. A master sketch of the whole ceiling was created, and then each main detail was sketched a second time as a close up so I knew exactly what was to be painted.

Career paths. I'm lost.

Hi, I'm lost, and I was wondering if you could help me. I feel stuck in life, and I've decided that I'm going to put my life into action with as much vigor as possible.  I've decided to start with finances and education.  I've got the finances part figured out, but I have no idea on education.   I'm twenty years old.  I went to a technical college for Information Technology and Communications Systems, and I left after a year because I was no longer interested, I don't believe I was prepared to take the educational leap (I hindered myself), and I left for a relationship. I don't want to make that mistake again.  Being a maker, what types of possibilities are out there for career paths?  What type of education should I pursue?  How do I make sure that what seems like a great choice doesn't turn out to be a passing fad like my past venture?   I feel as if I've wasted too much time.  I haven't been in high school for three years, and I have nothing to show for it.  I need to get this going as soon as possible.
