The class of 2012: Are businesses doing enough to find digital talent?

University careers services are not currently well equipped to provide advice on jobs in digital. In fact, given the lack of internal digital knowledge in most institutions and scarcity of up-to-date courses, meaningful advice from any quarter is thin on the ground.

Even graduates from relevant degrees such as marketing, advertising or media are largely unaware of the vast array of opportunities available.

10 new specialist qualifications for the digital industry

There’s a whiff of triumph in the air: ten new specialist qualifications for the digital industry, each seeking to provide the skills needed to become a confident practitioner in disciplines as diverse as Analytics, SEO, UX, and Social Commerce.

Econsultancy’s new Graduate Certificates offer an accredited route to mastering the implementation of a range of core digital skills and offer supported learning on the job.

Created in direct response to client demand (and our own findings in the recent Skills and Structures report), these new qualifications are an important development for us.

Raising the bar: Econsultancy’s graduating class of 2011 builds on last year’s success

Econsultancy’s qualifications team is chuffed to bits to hear the news that this year’s MSc in Digital Marketing Communications graduates not only achieved their qualifications, but aced them.

Out of the five candidates, three were awarded merits, whilst Daniel Tomlinson (Trutex) and Lucy von Weber (South West Wales Tourism Partnership) achieved the MSc’s first distinctions. The university described all this year’s dissertations as outstanding and we’re inclined to agree!
