The Creative Job Pursuit: The Ability to Follow One’s Dream Fearlessly. This project contains a resource guide that will assist students applying and exploring for jobs. The project also shows how divergent and convergent tools can aid in this experience and includes information on divergent and convergent tools such as Pluses, Potentials, Concerns, and How to overcome those concerns (PPCo), Brainstorming, and Storyboarding. These tools were needed in order to develop the risk-taking skill that was pertinent to this project. The tools and skill applied in this project allowed for the search for an ideal job that fosters and nurtures creativity and its many facets. The project report incorporates my own personal job seeking stories for inspiration and strength for others.
