As the workplace becomes more virtual there are more opportunities for freelancers and remote workers to diversify their skillset and become a one stop shop for potential clients and companies.
For years we have assumed that the Adobe suite CC was made with graphic designers and photographers at the forefront of the target market - however, the software comes with many great advantages that can be useful in your day to day role.
We have compiled a list of reasons why you should consider investing in Adobe suite CC and learning how to utilise it.
Anyone in marketing or sales can utilise Adobe CC suite As much of the UK workforce has shifted towards remote or flexible working over the past two years, it has become much more desirable for sales and marketing professionals to produce their own collateral to support their roles, in the absence of onsite designers and creative departments. Being able to bring creative ideas to the table, whilst also executing them yourself, will bolster any CV.
Adobe suite is one of the most sought after skills for freelancers If you have taken the leap of faith into freelance work throughout the pandemic, or have been doing it for years, you will know the importance of having as many skills to bring to the table as possible. A freelancer in high demand will be able to write copy, execute multiple communication campaigns and create the visuals to bring both to life. Adobe suite empowers its user to bring to life not only copy in Indesign for a magazine or blog, but also to use Lightroom or Photoshop to edit photos and find the perfect visual for your finished product.
It is industry standard software Adobe has long been recognised as the industry standard software for creative jobs. Often universities or businesses will teach adobe suite as their standard preferred software. It is also a software recognised by name across sectors and countries, meaning that once you can add Adobe suite to your CV, everyone will know what you can bring to the table.
Adobe skills are transferable to other job roles If you want to change roles or even careers, having transferable skills is top of the list of things that potential employers look for. Adobe suite knowledge can be transferred across a range of disciplines and is not limited to creative careers alone. For example, learning photoshop would not only support a photographer or designer, but also would be more than useful for marketing, communications, sales teams, training and other teams within the company.
It can be collaborative between team members Although some people may not be too pleased about the Adobe Creative Cloud replacing the traditional Adobe suite that used to come on a CD - it has many advantages, including team members being able to share subscriptions and save documents in the cloud, that would allow multiple team members access to the same documents easily. This is perfect for editing and proofreading copy, adding visuals to articles or simply accessing documents from multiple devices or offices.
