Thinking of a career in digital online Media?
Over the past 15 years, the internet has grown rapidly, from virtually nothing to the point where over 30 million UK residents are online on a daily basis. It has become a major business hub, with £68 billion being spent at online stores in 2011.
Social media has also mushroomed, being no longer just the domain of teenagers. Facebook now has over 845 million users worldwide and Twitter has become a tool that many businesses use as a key part of their online marketing strategy.
As the opportunities for careers continue to expand year-on-year, this is having a major impact on the jobs market, affecting thousands of Britons in the Peterborough and Cambridge areas – where there are almost 2,500 vacancies for such positions. Job adverts everywhere are increasingly dominated by vacancies within digital online media and certain skills such as website design, programming and project management are in more demand than ever before.
With such exciting prospects to be found in the sector, an ever-increasing number of people are considering a future in digital online media. Some need to brush up and develop the skills they've already obtained, while others need to gain the basic skills and perhaps develop these on the job.
