10+ years in performance media. Managing budgets of 15m per annum.
If i was hiring, i would opt for experience than qualifications. Try and find an internship somewhere or learn the basics via youtube and fiddle around with a few dollars of your own money (you can start with $5.)
The blueprint is nice and honestly google certs are good to have but nothing beats in platform experience.
You know what would really make you stand out for social? Grow your own channel. Whether thats twitter, fb or ig (or tiktok) that just shows innate understanding of content that works, keyword research, time of day analysis. That’ll set you worlds apart from someone with 10 qualifications.
Forgot to mention: media doesnt care what background you have. One of the smartest people i know in media has a degree in philosophy. It doesnt matter.
