After moving to Fort Collins, Chris knew he needed to upskill his resume to land the kind of job he was interested in. Chris was ready to switch careers and start something new. “I had been wanting to strengthen my digital skills and heard about the Digital Workshop Center by word of mouth. I looked into it and it seemed like a great fit,” he mentioned.
“I have always had digital skills and an interest in the field but I wanted to get better. And I wanted to have a certificate from a well-known place.” He enrolled in the Digital Workshop Center’s Digital Marketing Certificate program to learn the latest trends and practices in all things related to digital marketing including search engine optimization (SEO), social media advertising, email marketing, web and social analytics and more.
After completion of the coursework, he was able to land a job at Colorado Sound – the local NPR music station. His job entails a variety of digital marketing work including social media, website content, digital outreach, photography and more. Chris mentioned, “Without a doubt, the DWC courses helped me get this job. I had good digital skills to begin with, but to be able to put the DWC credentials on my resume really set me apart from the other candidates.”
As he’s settled into his new job, Chris continues to upskill his resume at the Digital Workshop Center. Chris and his colleague on the NPR news-side are taking a higher-level WordPress class. “I frequently recommend the Digital Workshop Center to coworkers and friends. It’s a great place to learn,” Chris told us. “I feel grateful I came across the DWC when I did. They have a lot of great resources to improve your skills.”
