There is no dearth of resources available and knowledge prior to applying will always provide for a welcome upper hand
- Undertake Free Resources and Training Courses
Google is a vast and infinite pool of resources. Lucky for us, this infinity pool comes with many free perks and by free perks, the implication lies in the many free resources and training courses available to solidify one’s skillset and further strengthen the resume. Many of these also provide certifications upon completion, which can be added to LinkedIn or simply be stated on the CV
- Try and Garner Relevant Work Experience
Any experience is good experience in the professional world but if a work experience placement is successfully completed before actively seeking long-term or full-term employment, it helps stand out among other job seekers. This work experience also helps give a feel as to what digital marketing is really like. Being proactive is up there when looking for work experience.
Unfortunately, with how competitive the digital marketing field has become, simply applying with A grade scores from university doesn’t make the cut.
