Google and The Dots have partnered up to fast track the careers of 50 industry-ready rising stars!
The second event in the 6 month programme kicked off at the Google offices in St Giles, London.
The focus of this event was to help our 50 Fast Trackers deep-dive on the various roles and career options that they could apply their skills across the digital and creative industries.
We know that understanding industry professions may be a confusing process as there is a lot of jargon around what exactly these roles are (i.e. the difference between a strategist/planner, art director/creative director, UX/UI etc).
Set in a fireside chat format, our Fast Trackers met with leading industry professionals in professions including marketing, product management, content creation, digital product design/UX,UI & graphic design, art direction, software engineering, copywriting, media planning/strategy, project management and entrepeneurship.
Our Fast Trackers were able to open their eyes to professions/pathways they might have never considered, and also gained some tips and tricks on how to navigate their careers and get their foot in the door.
