CATS Introduction

In the first session of CATS, we went through the assignment brief, course handbook, and the week by week plan of the lectures. The first lesson topic was finding the path we would like to take within our specific fields- after watching two videos from the TED Talks — which were about how media is affecting our lives, and jobs as a result, and you need passion to succeed in whichever careers we want for ourselves — we were asked to fill out a table that included 3 goals we wanted for our careers, and why we thought that would help us in our futures.

Overall, I thought this first session was very useful as I have a clearer understanding of the future of the job market and how technology will continue to be beneficial for all aspects of life. Also, I was inspired to take on all experiences and pieces of work that may come my way as they will aid me and help me further my career in the media sector.
