DMA Student Member Webinar-How to Survive and Thrive in your First Job.png

When it comes to your first job, how can you prepare for the difference between dreams and reality? Join DMA Talent and Commercial Break to learn what working in the marketing industry will actually be like.

Unsurprisingly, the marketing industry is brilliant at selling a dream idea of the work environment, culture, and people to prospective new entrants.

But how does that dream compare to the reality, particularly for those negotiating their first steps and those from diverse backgrounds?

Find out on Wednesday 20 October, 3 to 4pm.

Get key insights, practical tips, and problem-solving techniques from:

  • Webinar chair Kate Burnett, General Manager, DMA Talent
  • James Hillhouse, Co-Founder, Commercial Break
  • A panel of four recent entrants to the industry

Join our speakers to learn about:

  • What it takes to get your foot in the door
  • How to succeed once you're in
  • What to expect on a day-to-day basis
  • The barriers you might face and how to overcome them
  • What the industry can do to ensure a fairer progression for everyone
