You’re studying hard at uni and you have one year to go. You have your eye on the prize, and that prize is a job in digital marketing. But how do you bridge the gap between uni and career?
The most rewarding answer is the same as it has always been – by networking.
Indago Digital is helping students to get that happening with its inaugural one-day Digital Cadets event.
Indago is hosting a free training, advice and career opportunities day on May 11, 2018 at the Sydney Cricket Ground, partnering with Google, Randstad, UNiDAYS and ADMA. University partners include Macquarie Uni, UTS & Western Sydney Uni, but students attending all of NSW major universities will be invited to apply to attend.
You need to apply to attend.
Why is attending the Digital Cadets event a good idea? Well, apart from learning what skills are valued in digital marketing and becoming equipped with the tools to land the best jobs, a selection of those digital marketers will be attending, looking for people like you for jobs and internships.
Google, easily one of the world’s most exciting and game-changing companies will be there. Randstad will be looking for candidates for its Shaping Young Futures programme that arms young graduates with everything they need to land a job in digital, as well as direct access to jobs in Randstad’s partner organisations.
And Indago Digital, Australia’s 50th fastest growing startup will be offering job opportunities and internships to delegates.
Gary Nissim, managing director of Indago Digital, stated, “It’s strange how the industry in Australia seems to favour importing digital marketing talent rather than growing its own. This is helping fuel the industry’s dependency on the volatile visa market as well as artificially inflating salaries. If we build a foundation of local, diverse, intelligent and educated talent that is then well trained we will be solving a broad range of issues the industry currently faces.
“We’re not naïve enough to believe that this event will solve the problem, but Indago Digital and our corporate and education partners are initiating change.”
