Aleena Ferlin | Marketing Assitant, GreenFig
On September 6th, GreenFig partnered with Metropolitan State University of Denver and held a panel discussion for their students.
The panel focused our Digital Marketing Science class - a one-of-a-kind live virtual experience to invite students from MSU Denver to join other students from around the U.S. to learn the skills that they need to land today's top jobs from leading industry experts. Our goal is to help them gain real-world work experience that employers seek in today's job market.
We wanted to give their students a look into their potential future by offering them information on digital marketing fundamentals, digital strategy, digital marketing tactics and marketing technology & platforms.
This panel included 4 of Denver’s best industry experts who shared their thoughts about the Digital Marketing world.
These 4 experts shared insider tips on what it takes to get hired and excel in today’s fast-moving digital marketing field. They focused on the different trends in the marketing world, the different aspects hiring managers look for on resumes, the critical skills that can help someone stand out and the steps someone can take to make dreams become reality.
We had a great turnout with over 80 students in attendance. After the panel was over, the students were able to interact with the panelists and some even won some GreenFig swag!
Opportunity favors the prepared mind. I am a firm believer in this. Lifelong learning is critical to individual growth and independence. We are at a unique point in our history. Everyone feels it. The pace of change is accelerating - exponentially – in every aspect of our lives. It is driven by the prevalence of technology and data enabling our daily interactions with life.
It is true that digital transformation will require a different type of professional workforce. But, the statistics show that this workforce is not going to be dominated by coders, computer scientists, mathematicians, et al. Instead, it will be largely comprised of people with digital skills and work experience using them; people who have proven they understand how to operate and apply – not code – digital business applications.
