Broadcast Presenter
The public face, or more appropriately voice, of programmes
broadcast on radio, the internet, and television.
Oral Communication, Computer Use, Problem Solving, Critical
Thinking, Prepare Broadcast Copy, Decision Making, Social
Perceptiveness, and Active Listening.
For Broadcasters 0-2 years worth of experience is needed for
most employers. Broadcasters or Announcers can have a degree
from University, College, or a Technical Training institute. Many
employers require potential employees to have a little bit of onthe-job experience even if it is at a College or University
broadcast.
The work that a Broadcaster has to do is mainly indoors but at
times they may have to work outdoors. Broadcasters work in
shifts and may have to work on holidays, weekdays, and late
night shifts, the work can occasionally be somewhat stressful.
Some broadcasters can be on air for up to 24 hours, they can
often work very long, hard days. They can occasionally cover
live events but generally the work will be conducted in
soundproof studios. The schedules can sometimes be tight and
broadcasters have little to no room for errors whilst
broadcasting live. They must also go to meetings and prepare
as well thus not all of the work a broadcaster does is on air.
The CareerCruising site states that the earnings can range
between $19,000 and $75,000 a year. Another site states that
the expected low hourly wage is $12.04, the median is $26.07
and the high wage is $55.67.
ONet states that there will be little to no change in the growth of
this career in the years 2012-2022. In Toronto and the rest of
Ontario, the outlook for Broadcaster is undetermined.
Broadcast News Analyst, Reporters and Correspondents, Copy
Writers, Film and Video Editors, Tour Guides and Escorts, Disc
Jockey, Print Journalist, and Public Relation Specialist.
This career is a good choice for me because not only do I need a
mix of working with people and by myself, which this job would
provide, I also need a job that allows me to be creative. My
occupational theme on the Strongs Assessment was AEC,
Artistic, Enterprising, and Conventional, the occupation theme
for Broadcaster according to ONet is AES. Also my two strongest
intelligences were Musical and Linguistic, which is a very big
part of being a broadcaster therefore I feel like this career would
be a good fit for me.
The Strongs Assessment recommended Broadcast Journalist as
number 2 in my top ten strong occupations.

Advertising Director
Typically Advertising Directors supervise or oversee advertising
and promotional campaigns either at a specific marketing
agency or at an advertising department in a big company or
firm.
Generally employers require employees to have anywhere
between 1 and 5 years worth experience. Advertising Directors
have to be able to plan, organize and direct daily operations,
prepare reports, recruit, hire, and train staff. They should also
have some skills with time management, oral communication,
working with others, problem solving, computer use, writing,
reading text, finding information, critical thinking, and decision
making.
Employees generally should have either a Bachelors Degree or
an Associates Degree, according to ONet.
The work is generally conducted in an office environment and
they normally work 45 hours a week, however there are times
when an Advertising Director may have to work long hours in a
day to meet important deadlines. An Advertising Director may
have to travel sometimes to meet clients and industry contacts.
The low hourly wage is expected to be $21.00, the median
hourly wage is $40.87, and the high hourly wage is expected to
be $65.58. ONet states that the median annually wage is
approximately $96,720.
On ONet the prospects are slower than average, with either 3%
of 7% growth in job opportunities. In Toronto and the rest of
Ontario the outlook for Advertising Director is 2 stars, a fair
growth.
Some related jobs are: Purchasing Manager, Marketing
Managers, Public Relations and Fundraising Managers, Art
Directors, Producers, and Public Relations Specialist.
This career would also allow me to be creative. Some of my
strengths, according to the MBTI, are problem solving in creative
ways, careful decision maker, values harmony and cooperation
(which in my opinion is very important for an Advertising
Director as they are basically the head of a team) and
memorizing facts and details. This team is also a mixture of
working with and without people, for the most part, and it takes

place in an office, a place where I would be able to go off on my


own and have some peace and quiet. A job like this seems to be
quite secure as well, something I like in a job.
The MBTI recommended Marketer and Director of Marketing,
both quite similar to Advertising Director. On the Strongs
Assessment, Marketing and Advertising was one of my top five
basic interests and on the occupational scales Advertising
Account Manager was listed as a similar interest with women in
that occupation.

Interior Designer
Interior Designers plan living spaces and commercial
environments, they also manage the work, money, purchasing
of materials, etc., so they can begin to make their design a
reality.
Some required skills are: Active Listening, Speaking, Reading
Comprehension, Social Perceptiveness, Service Orientation,
Negotiation, Time Management, Persuasion, Critical Thinking,
Judgement and Decision Making, Creativity, and Management of
Personal Resources.
Interior Designers should have either a Bachelors Degree or an
Associates Degree.
A lot of Interior Designers are self-employed which can be both
stressful and not stressful depending on the designers
personality. It is common for interior designers to work on the
weekends and the evenings, excluding self-employed designers
whose work hours tend to be more irregular. There will be slow
periods in which there is not much business. Interior Designers
design the insides of spaces, hence the title Interior Designer,
and they have to travel to different parts of the city or town in
which they live frequently.
The annual wage is expected to be between $25,000 and
$80,000. The low hourly wage is expected to be $17.00, the
median is $25.00, and the high hourly wage is $36.92.
The outlook for Interior Designers in Toronto is three stars, a
good outlook. On ONet the outlook is average, with an 8% to
14% growth rate.
Some of the related jobs are Marketing Managers, Purchasing
Managers, Purchasing Agents, Landscape Architects, and Set
and Exhibit Designers.

This is probably the one job out of the three I have chosen that
will allow me to be fully creative and that seems to be a large
part of the assessments. There is a chance to be independent
and does not involve working with a lot of people, something
that is good for me. I can easily listen to the concerns that
others have and come up with alternatives that will still benefit
them but also please them, after constantly watching Reno
shows and Designer shows this is something that designers
need to be able to do.
Interior Designer, Set Designer, and Exhibit Designer were listed
on the MBTI assessment.
