Consider Digital Marketing
Working in digital marketing is a great way to begin and progress your career. In many ways, it’s much more pandemic proof than other industries – sure, nothing is normal right now, but people still use websites, interact with online content, click on ads etc. The competition is a little stiffer than normal but if this is something that interests you, there are most certainly jobs out there, and the digital world is ever evolving, so post pandemic you can rely on interesting new opportunities arising as well. This sector is vast and there are opportunities to work for agencies or in house, in roles such as content writing, performance optimisation, analytics, website development, design, data science, communications, programming, search engine optimisation, social media management, customer relationship management/account management… the list goes on. Much of it is about tapping into what makes people tick, so if you’re interested in people, psychology and how brains work, there’s a definite human element to working in the digital sector too.
