Member Stories

Having gained an introduction to the digital field at Epsilon, I realized there were many more areas to explore and gain knowledge in. Digital marketing is a key part of every successful business, and is a career path I decided to pursue.

Between the course management team, comprehensive learning content and weekly blogs on the Digital Marketing Institute website, I felt that my learning experience was very well supported overall.

When I decided to rejoin the workforce, I recognized the digital skills gap in my CV, and knew it needed to be addressed before approaching potential employers.
