Personal Development 2

Getting a Job in the area of Digital Media / Social Media is something I have been thinking a lot about recently. How will I "break in" is the question I constantly find I keep ask myself.

Getting my first job in Digital Media is something I greatly desire. Although I have been trying to network a lot, and over the course of this month I have spoken to many people who are involved in areas that I have a specialist interest in, I still feel confused as to what it takes to gain your first job.

While networking this has allowed me to gather lots of info for Personal Development.

Here are a list of companies I would love to work for


MGImedia is owned by Amber MacArthur host of CommandN

MGImedia specialize in

  • Web Usability and User Experience Consulting
  • Video Production & Post-Production
  • Web Design & Branding
  • Social Media Consulting & Web 2.0 Technologies

    Bright Young Things

    Bright Young Things are a communications consultancy, who produce low cost video content for social networks.

    Looking at these four companies has helped me identify that I really want to work creating video for the web, but I also want to be able to create and manage online communities, as well as having the skills to communicate with these communities

    I already believe I have the skills to communicate with a large number of people in a wide range of locations using the many web 2.0 tools that are freely accessible.

    I also have the physical tools (computer, video camera, video editing software) (I need to invest some of my money in to a good microphone) to be able to make and produce video content

    The only thing left for me to do is develop my production skills. Anyone who works in the online world will know that Content is King
