This week, Kevin Taylor was featured in the Guardian careers online article, ‘How to write a CV for marketing’.
The article provides tips and advice for graduates looking to pursue a career in marketing.
It begins by explaining there are specific skills that must be demonstrated such as a high degree of numeracy, organisational skills and the need to be articulate and empathetic with customers.
For digital marketing roles specifically, there is a requirement for individuals to understand the technologies available to communicate with clients and colleagues. Kevin’s input during a Q&A session on Careers in Digital Marketing is then shared. He said Gravytrain tends to hire, “people who have immersed themselves in digital marketing in their spare time”. He then urges digital marketing job seekers to get involved in blogs, showing off their own ideas and opinions – particularly on new technologies.
Following on from this are useful examples of what a good CV should include.
