The demand for digital skills continues to grow across the labor market and is infused into new jobs with related skill sets. Many professional and businesses services industries use digital media tools to communicate their messaging through graphic design, advertising, social media campaigns, videography, and more. Reports indicate that 82% of middle-skill jobs are now “digitally intensive.” Incumbent workers need to regularly acquire new digital skills in order to stay ahead of job market changes and to advance in their careers.
With help from the top 10 digital media colleges in the state, the ICT-DM Sector has identified the following digital media skills needed most by those wanting a solid foundation on which to build:
Basic Video Production & Editing
Adobe Creative Cloud
Intro to Visual Communications
Writing for Media/Storytelling
These courses are also the most popular. The ICT Team will continue to advocate the migration of Digital Media from ‘art only’ to a more multipurpose business communication skill.
