Are you a keen marketer? If so, then you will be aware that online marketing is the future. Digital marketing spend has increased year on year while other channels have reduced. It is also a great industry to work in. It is vibrant, challenging and most of all, it is fun.
My name is Andrew Harris and I am the operations director for Latitude Express. We are a digital marketing agency based in the North West and we are keen to support local university to grow and recruit the best talent. However, based on personal experience while I was looking for my first job since graduating (it wasn’t that long ago!!) I found many hurdles which I needed to overcome before being accepted. The main hurdle was that most companies are looking for individuals with experience. Most students have minimal experience, especially when the industry (digital) is so young. This issue is one of the main reasons why Latitude Express is keen to promote and support the following opportunity:
