Media has significantly evolved over the past few decades and has stemmed its roots in people's lives more than we could have imagined. People choose their career because they have an inspiration or someone they look up to. In a study, upon surveying 1,500 employed people, it was found out that this inspiration could also have been the result of the choices made by their favorite characters in a movie or TV show. Most of the people working in the field of marketing agreed to be influenced by TV shows and movies.
Career choice inspired by Media
As a variety of different shows have emerged over the years, people have gotten more involved in them, which have affected their lives on a personal as well as professional level. 73% of workers belonging to the field of Arts and Entertainment declared that media is the main factor that swayed their career decision and finally enabled them to land on fixing their career on Arts and Entertainment. It was also stated that the movies and TV shows showcased a rather exciting idea of their careers, which is far from the truth. In reality, their professional life is frequently met with challenges and is nowhere near easy or comforting.
What is the worth of a genre
The favorite genre of the respondents belonging to different work fields was exceptionally different from each other as it reflected their own personal and professional interest. For instance, the genre of Military generated the highest income on an annual basis, which means that people who were engaged with this specific genre generated more money than the admirers of other genres.
Media has not only inspired people to increase their knowledge politically and socially, but it has also helped the people to choose what is best for them. Many people who had vague ideas about their future are now winning in their lives just because they were able to find a reason to commit to it.
