Digital Advertising

    Hi, I'm currently going through college for a Master In Business Administration while taking other digital marketing classes offered by the school. I've talked to quite a few other digital marketers that I've met some online, some in person. Many said to get Google and Bing certifications. I have a Bing Accredited professional and working on Google Adsense and Analytics. The people I've talked to said to begin in an advertising agency and work your way up to contracting for small-medium sized companies. Where would I find an advertising agency to apply for with no previous work background in Advertising, but I do have some in computers. Thanks.

    You do not list where you live, so my comments may not be relevant. However, in the U.S., I would advise searching for advertising agency jobs on linkedin.com, indeed.com, and glassdoor.com. These three job sites seem to be the most used these days and should cover most of the opportunities out there. Be sure that you have an up-to-date and compelling resume and linkedin profile (be sure that they match exactly, as the first thing many hiring managers do is look at your resume and then go to your linkedin profile to confirm.)

    Your school should also be helping you to network and find opportunities in your local area. I sit on an advisory Board for a major Boston university's MBA program and they have extensive resources for helping their students get internships and other networking opportunities at a wide range of companies, including agencies.

    Good luck with your search and keep us posted.

    You can apply for internship training in the companies which deal with digital marketing. Most of the companies offer internships and then job offer letter after successfully completing your interns. You should make a strong profile on LinkedIn so that, companies can reach you.

    To answer both, I live in the US. Im currently attending community college for a transfer degree.

    I have made a LinkedIn with my certification, school, I'm attending with the degree and a face profile picture. If you know any companies that are looking for internships (Or where to find them) please do let me know. Traveling would be hard. But I have high-speed internet.

    Do a search for local advertising and/or marketing agencies in your area. I would then reach out to their CEO (these are usually very small companies) and offer your services as an intern for six months while you continue to attend classes, etc. Some of these agencies will be interested in free help and working for them will get you the experience you will want on your resume.

    Why would an agency hire you with no experience in digital marketing? They won't. Your best bet is to start with a job that relates to digital marketing and work your way up. Often you can advance with a company and take on additional responsibility which will give you real world experience to become more attractive in the market place.

    Right now you are useless to a digital marketing agency. They have more than enough of qualified applicants who are willing to work all over the salary range begging for a job. Why would they hire a guy with no experience? Why would their client seek their services if their services are provided by a person with zero experience in the contracted field?

    My kids are university aged, they and their friends are doing a variety of degrees. All seem to heavily promote both exchange programs with other universities, and work experience. You're doing an MBA without a lot of work experience which surprises me, the entry requirements down here require solid experience and a position in a company that allows ongoing involvement.

    I recommend finding the liasion office and getting them to find you agencies that want to be involved. Even if it's not a dream role it gets your foot in the door and gets lines on your CV.
