Are you looking for the next step in your creative career? Wondering what’s around the corner for 2017? Perhaps you’re moving from one part of the creative industry to another, or even from another sector entirely? Or you could be at the start of your career and looking for your first job.
Over half (58%) of creative, marketing and advertising professionals find it hard to stand out in their job application, according to a Brand Republic survey conducted earlier this year. And almost one in four (23%) said they don’t know what employers are looking for.
"If you want to progress your career, whether that be through a new job, a new position within your company or a career change altogether, having an idea of what employers are looking for and what job trends lie ahead will put you at a distinct advantage," says Sarah Ellis-Jones, director of business development at recruitment specialist Aquent and Vitamin T.
We have assembled a panel of experts who will be on hand on Thursday 1 December to answer your questions about how to progress your career and stand out to employers. The discussion will give you insights into job trends for 2017 so you can go away with the up-to-date knowledge you need to help you succeed in the competitive creative industry.
