Entering the world of digital – phones, iPads, laptops. We all use them at some point in the day, whether it’s in the morning on the bus to update your Facebook status, at school/college to email that very important assignment to your teacher, or in an evening to send a quick tweet to all your followers or even that amazeballs selfie you need to update to Instagram from Friday night. The world really does revolve around digital technology. Or at least ours does.

It’s not just for computer wizards
There is often an assumption that the digital industry is for all them tech pros out there. I’ll tell you it’s not. There are plenty of opportunities that don’t require you to be a computer genius.
There are few jobs about today that don’t require the basic knowledge of a computer so even if you change your mind you can transfer your skills learnt in the digital industry to numerous industries. Not only that skills you’ve learnt from school/college/university and just everyday life, in general, can be transferred to this industry. Now you’re probably wondering how. Well, you use social media, news flash!! So does pretty much every company out there. You’ve wrote a report/article at school? This is like writing a blog for your company’s website. Now, do you see how these skills are transferable? Yes, so when asked whether you have any previous experience you can answer that with a big YES!
