Whatever the job you need Final Cut Pro skills!
I was reading through “20 things 20 year olds don’t get” at Forbes and right in the middle jumps out this paragraph:
You HAVE to Build Your Technical Chops – Adding “Proficient in Microsoft Office” at the bottom of your resume under Skills, is not going to cut it anymore. I immediately give preference to candidates who are ninjas in: Photoshop, HTML/CSS, iOS, WordPress, Adwords, MySQL, Balsamiq, advanced Excel, Final Cut Pro – regardless of their job position. If you plan to stay gainfully employed, you better complement that humanities degree with some applicable technical chops.
I added the emphasis, but it’s strong evidence for my “video is just another literacy” hypothesis. Although in context I have to say, I have no idea what “Blasamiq” is and definitely don’t have any skills. (The others, fortunately, I do have some skills in.)
Apple must be pleased with the use of “Final Cut Pro” as a generic term for NLE!
