Guest Post: Looking for a Job in Marketing?

Google Adwords is a hugely important channel for many online businesses today. Adwords has been fundamental to building Mighty Ape’s brand in New Zealand over the past 5 years, and has been responsible for introducing Mighty Ape to thousands of new customers.

Fresh out of University and straight into a marketing job at Mighty Ape, my good friend Paul Minors has recently launched a Kickstarter project to teach university students Google Adwords skills.

If you’re interested in marketing, growing a business or maybe you know someone who is, I highly recommend checking it out.

Enter Paul…

In 2012 I graduated from University and started work in a new marketing role at Mighty Ape. I quickly learnt how important Google Adwords is for our business and asked myself why university hadn't taught us these skills. This lead me to create Adwords for Students, an online course to prepare students for the business world.

I want to empower students to:

  • Learn the skills you need to get your dream job in marketing.
  • Help grow the company you work for with these vital skills.
  • Rise up your career path quicker as you upskill yourself.
  • Earn a higher salary as you become a more valuable employee.

I’m super excited (and a bit nervous) to announce that I have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund my new project.

Adwords for Students has been designed for... yes you guessed it.... students. There's lots of existing content out there that teaches Google Adwords but the majority of this is tailored towards business owners and marketers. These resources often assume you have prior knowledge on the subject and can be tricky and time consuming to learn from. Not to mention, a lot of it is VERY boring...

Adwords for Students takes learning back to square one and is designed to teach in the ways that students find most effective. The overall aim of the course is to help you the student become smarter, so you can add skills to your CV, look more attractive to employers or even create a job for yourself in a company who isn't using Adwords.

Please take a look at the Kickstarter page. Every dollar pledged is a huge help towards bringing the course to life.
