Looking for your next job in the marketing industry? Here are our top tips…
1. Stay up to date with industry news
Make more of an effort than ever to keep your eye on trends, failures, successes and so on within the industry - both local and global. Read Marketing Week, Prolific North, etc - just make sure you know what’s going on. It’s important to research whichever company you are interviewing for, but it’s just as important to know the context of their work within the wider industry. Likewise, if you want to show you can step into the role and hit the ground running, you need to know what is trending, what isn’t and what will be… these things change remarkably fast so this is especially important if you are currently out of work.
2. Widen your skills to give you an extra edge. How is your SEO knowledge? Or your HTML/CSS skills? You don’t need to be a pro in everything, but it is always beneficial to be able to demonstrate an understanding of an additional skill. Maybe it’s not something that will be a direct responsibility of your role, but it shows you have an interest in expanding your skills and that you can also understand other people’s role in the business.
3. Stop saying we! When you’re presenting work that you did in a team, make sure you can explain your own contribution clearly. You could have ran a project single handedly, but if you can articulate what you did, what your ideas were, and why final decisions were made, it will come across like you had very little involvement. Whilst you want to show you can work well in a team, it's important to not let the fear of not looking like a team player overshadow what you actually did.
