Working Experience

Working experience is one of the best ways for you to stand out amongst other graduates. Apprenticeships are usually the easiest and most effective ways for you to gain this kind of experience, but it is possible for you to do it in other ways too. To begin with, you need to try and have a good understanding of the industry you are working in. You’ll need to read blogs, try and keep up with the latest trends and also get a feel as to how you would implement a campaign. You will also have to practice building things, such as blogs so that you can learn how to communicate online. Of course, if you go down the apprenticeship route then you will be able to learn all of this while also being paid for it.

Seeking A Job

It’s important for bigger employers to run graduate schemes so that applications can be received and accessed online. The main thing that you have to remember is that a lot of marketing jobs do not tend to be advertised widely. You will usually find them through job portals, social media, or even through trade organisations. This is why it’s important to ensure that your social media profiles are updated on a regular basis.  If you are aware that jobs are being posted on social media, then it’s important to make sure that your posts show you in a professional light. You’ll need to ensure that you go through your recent and public posts too. There have been many instances where people have lost out on job opportunities because employers have viewed their social media pages and decided against hiring them.
