You studied Comp Sci, used QuarkXpress, made magazines, and you liked it!

Today, there are courses available on digital marketing — but even with those, is a formal education really what impresses me as a hiring manager?

Give me someone who knows SEO basics, can read or code HTML, is a good writer and can have an intelligent conversation any day over someone who only has a degree.

A good signal that you, as a job candidate, have those skills is by showing that you ve developed a website or a blog on your own with some specific focus.

Know that you are a limited resource and there will always be some reason to work late or skip a vacation.
