Like some of the other advertising roles, there are a few different areas you could study, if you wanted to continue your education. If that is the case, you could explore a number of different pathways – Communications and Marketing being one, Public Relations and Journalism another, or Events. Of course, Digital courses as well.
There are also short courses which could be easily translated into Content Creation roles, or Community Management roles.
Applying for roles within the social space need you to highlight what content you are creating, how impactful it’s been, and creating a portfolio to share this is helpful. Like all of the advertising roles, it is good to start looking to make connections with other people in your chosen field, and understanding the role in more detail.
If you can, learning more of those transferable skills will help you stand out when you are applying to a place you have no previous connections.
