Hear What Our Recent Course Alumni Have to Say About Their Learning Experiences

I joined the course because I thought it could be useful for my home-based business.  Little did I expect to land my dream job as a digital marketer for a food catering company during the course.  Although I’m not new to digital marketing, the course has given me valuable knowledge and increased my confidence in performing my job.  The instructors are all very helpful and experienced in the topics that they teach. I especially enjoyed the segments on livestream marketing and social media content creation.

Carolina Ng, Course Participant (Nov 2022)

The course had provided me with knowledge in SEO/SEM, content marketing, live-streaming insights as well as communication skills – all very valuable to gain a better understanding about a digital marketing career.  I also gained practical experience in the Live-streaming segment with trainer Maureen Ow aka misstamchiak! It was really exciting to plan and execute the entire backend operations of a live-stream.
