Anyone considering this job would need to be patient, warm, a good listener and customer focused. However in the long run what you need most of all is common sense.


If you are considering returning to the work force don't sell yourself short. Remember all the life experience you have acquired rearing a family and running a household.


Believe in yourself and go for it!


Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
