How to Design a Job You Love

Zara Stasi explains how to turn a business job into a creative career.

Zara Stasi graduated from college and quickly accepted a job offer doing consulting, despite her passion for and degree in art. The stability and paycheck Deloitte, a major professional services firm, offered were appealing, but over the years, Stasi began to pine for professional opportunities that made better use of her creative skills.

So she made a big pitch to the executives at her company: Make me your in-house artist, and I'll offer your clients a unique, valuable experience.

After her creative thinking helped save a challenging, high-stakes meeting, Stasi sold her bosses on the proposal and now has her dream job as an artist who specializes in live graphics facilitation. That means she translates client meetings into illustrations and text in real time, creating visual notes that help business leaders understand and solve problems.
