As we explore what work will look like moving forward and what people will be doing as careers, I was reminded of the work I did for New Media Manitoba.
New Media Manitoba is the Sector Council and non-profit
association serving Manitoba’s Interactive Digital Media
We did a tour of member business of all shapes and sizes from the small teams of 3-4 people to start ups in the Exchange to the bigger employers like Bold Commerce
The challenges in documenting an industry that pretty much happens inside computers and is highly technical, is to find the moments that highlight the soft skills in this industry that are necessary:
Communication skills, Teamwork, Problem-solving, Creativity
I really enjoyed my time documenting this industry, learning about some of the amazing work thats being done all over this province. Economic diversity will be so important to move forward, support for the Interactive Digital Media industry essential to that diversity.
