My Advice for Those who are Interested in doing a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship
Do your research and be prepared
Before you commit to an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing, make sure that you know what you want to achieve from it and whether it will enable you to reach your future career goals and ambitions. More importantly, make sure that you research the company who your apprenticeship is with, so you are aware of their approach to Digital Marketing and how they work as a business.
Don’t run before you can walk
With Digital Marketing, there is a lot of new things to learn, so avoid rushing ahead and take a slower approach to begin with so that you absorb the information and have a better understanding of what is required.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help
There is a high chance that at some point you will need to ask one of your colleagues for help. Do. Don’t sit there and think “will I look stupid if I ask for help?” because you will find that you learn more things when you ask for help.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Make sure that you take note of any new things that you have learnt and keep putting them into practice in the workplace. With businesses becoming more competitive in Digital Marketing, you will find that the more you practice, the more benefits you will bring to yourself and the business.
