EP59 – Landing Your First Job in Paid Media

Author Jon Quinton < 1 min read time

Moving slightly away from our usual discussion points on paid media strategies & tactics, in this episode we explore the topic of how to land your first job!

Joining me for this episode is Louisa McNally, who joined our paid social team a couple of months ago. Very bravely, she agreed to have a chat and share some advice from her recent experience of job hunting.

If you’re currently looking for a role in paid social or PPC, there’s some excellent advice in this episode from Louisa on how to make your CV stand out, how to land an interview and then how to prepare once you get an interview opportunity.

We also discuss some of the trends that we’ve seen from successful candidates over the past few years, sharing some of the things that time and time again help people to stand out from the crowd. 

Genuinely hope this one is useful for people! Of course, please do also check out our open roles here and send us a note if you want to talk to us about any of them. We’d love to hear from you.
