Which course are you taking with us?
Digital Marketing at the BrainStation Toronto Campus.
Why are you taking this course?
As I’m exploring new career opportunities, I am very interested in the skills associated with digital marketing (branding, strategy, data analytics) as I believe they will enhance and complement my past experience.
How did you first hear about BrainStation?
What aspects of the course are you most interested in?
Can I say everything? A large aspect of working in policy is trying to understand and communicate the story behind the numbers. In that sense, I would say I’m most interested in marketing analysis, research, data analytics, and how it’s all tied together when it comes to crafting a comprehensive digital strategy.
What sparked your decision to register for the course?
The timing was right, and the curriculum was the right mix. After speaking to a Learning Advisor, I knew right away this course was exactly what I was looking for.
Where do you see yourself after completing the course?
I’m not sure yet. Possibly pursuing a new career in digital marketing or communications.
