There are a few organisations out there helping people get into the digital industry, but WYK digital actually provides the best results. They offer an intensive- free six weeks training and one that I can vouch for from my own experience. WYK is a digital marketing social enterprise and they help people- aged between 16 to 30 years old to kick start their careers in Digital Marketing.
Last year, I had trouble transitioning into marketing- having come from the housing industry. So I had taken various online courses to help me break into the industry, although it was difficult for me since “it’s not what you know but who you know” and at WYK after going through the thorough training, they had also connected me with the right companies that had offered interviews and employment.
Throughout the six weeks educational program, you’ll learn the fundamental aspects of digital marketing. They combine e-learning and 1-2-1 coaching by experts from a range of digital disciplines. Additionally, what I loved about the programme is the hands-on experience of managing actual digital campaigns, which had prepared me for my career in the digital sphere. I highly recommend this programme, if you’re interested, you can contact them on their website here and they’ll also be recruiting for their next programme mid June, so subscribe to their website to be updated for more opportunities.
