As a result of pitch feedback, our collective project has evolved into a more individual approach. My focus is narrowing in on the role DMS has in the future of work. Over the coming weeks, I will be developing a comprehensive Career Development Plan (CDP). The CDP is a document for DMS members and students seeking careers in the broad field of communication (journalism, media, digital, marketing, creative). The CDP is based on research discussing in-demand skills and how to stay relevant in these industries for the future.
The CDP will also explain how DMS is involved in this process through our workshops, networking opportunities and work experience connections. I have also iterated my outlook on the short, medium and long term future to focus on the contribution that DMS has to both the members and the current executive team.
