CIM Virtual Work Experience with Springpod: Build your knowledge with webinars on demand

It can be difficult for budding marketers to find out more about what marketing is and what it looks like as a career. That’s why CIM has partnered with Springpod for the Virtual Work Experience Programme to help those throughout the pandemic and beyond to build their marketing knowledge, develop career awareness and craft a stand-out CV. The programme’s webinars are now available on demand via the CIM YouTube channel. Read on to find out more about what you could learn. 

CIM launched the Virtual Work Experience with Springpod to help those considering a career in marketing find out more about what marketing is, the skills you need and the various routes available into the industry. In addition to this, aspiring marketers also had the opportunity to add work experience to their CVs, through a series of assignments and webinars presented by marketing professionals on a range of core subjects. 

Previous participant and digital marketing apprentice, Madeline Thorp, answered budding marketer’s questions in an Instagram live video and shared in an article her experience on the programme, how she used the experience to kickstart her marketing career and why the webinar sessions aided in building her marketing knowledge and skills.
