We are very excited here at WEXO Towers about our next WEXO TV event on Tuesday 6th November, “How I Made It In Digital Media” and are pleased to see so many applications coming in (please be patient while we proces them all). For those of you that have been reading our recent blogs, we strongly believe that the internet economy holds the solution to both UK Plc’s economic impasse and youth unemployment. According to BCG the internet accounts for 8.3% if the UK economy (£121Bn in 2010). 76% of people would consider giving up chocolate for an entire year in order to maintain their Internet access (see recent blog)! For those of you that want are still attracted to the traditional employment options like PR, marketing, advertising, fashion, music, investment banking, etc Rightster and other digital media companies offer opportunities in all these areas and as these multiply so the more traditional roles will decline. Make sure you are on the right side of the fence…
This event takes a slightly different format to our previous showings (How I Made It in Fashion 1 & 2, How I Made It In Advertising and How I Made It in Food!). This time round, we have a sponsor in innovative new digital media company, Rightster, who are using the event as part of their Recruitment campaign to find the some of the UK’s sharpest and savviest graduates and undergrads. There will be opportunities for 10 or so Graduate Jobs starting in January and also internships and further roles starting in the Summer of 2013. See here to find out more about the roles on offer and to apply to come along.
The event will feature key players from some of the biggest names in Digital Media including The Guardian, ITV and cricinfo.com. Successful applicants will be able to hear them talk briefly about how they ‘made it’ and then ask pre-polled questions followed by drinks at the renowned Adam Street Private Members Club.
