Get Placed in a Digital Marketing Job

freelance digital marketer job

Digital marketers typically follow one of two common pathways: securing a job in the industry or working as a freelancer

Getting Placed in a Digital Marketing Job

Senior digital marketers can earn up to $180,000 per year, while entry-level positions offer $2,500 to $3,500 per month, according to sources like Glassdoor, PayScale, and Robert Walters. However, breaking into the industry can be challenging without prior experience or a portfolio, as companies and digital agencies prefer candidates who demonstrate practical skills and experience.

This programme will help you:

  • Enhance your resume (CV)
  • Build your portfolio
  • Gain practical experience and skills
  • Secure a job in a digital marketing role
Becoming a Freelance Digital Marketer

Freelance digital marketers can earn between $150 and $1000 per project on platforms like Fiverr and Upwork. This, of course, depends on experience, expertise, and the complexity of the projects. However, securing projects can be difficult without a strong personal brand or connections.

This programme will provide you with:

  • Industry networking opportunities
  • Connections with local businesses
  • Exposure to a global client database

Participating in this programme will equip you with the tools you need to either secure a job in digital marketing or succeed as a freelance digital marketer.

Become an IT Professional

IT infrastructure and operations professionals can pursue various career paths, including employment within organisations and freelance opportunities.

Securing a Job in IT Infrastructure and Operations

IT infrastructure and operations professionals play a crucial role in maintaining and optimising an organisation’s IT environment. Salaries in Singapore vary based on experience and role:

  • Junior Level (3-5 years): $50,000 to $70,000 per year
  • Mid-Level (5-10 years): $70,000 to $120,000 per year
  • Senior Level (10+ years): $150,000 to $250,000+ per year

Common roles include IT support technician, help desk specialist, systems administrator, network engineer, IT architect and more. Gaining relevant certifications and hands-on experience are critical for entering this field.

This programme will help you:

  • Enhance your resume (CV)
  • Gain essential certifications
  • Build practical skills and experience
  • Secure a job in IT infrastructure and operations
Advancing to IT Management

Experienced IT infrastructure professionals can move into management roles, such as IT manager or IT director. These roles involve overseeing IT teams, managing budgets, and developing strategic IT initiatives. Advancement typically requires significant experience, leadership skills, and often a Bachelor’s Degree in IT or Business Administration (with IT specialisation).

This programme will establish the foundation for this pathway, as well as help you:

  • Develop project management skills
  • Gain advanced knowledge in IT strategy and governance
  • Build a network of professional contacts
Becoming a Freelance IT Infrastructure Consultant
Freelance IT infrastructure consultants can charge competitive rates depending on their expertise and the complexity of the projects.

Estimated project-based rates:

  • Small projects: $5,000 – $10,000
  • Medium projects: $10,000 – $50,000
  • Large projects: $50,000+

However, success as a freelancer depends highly on having a robust portfolio, industry certifications and strong professional connections.

This programme will provide you with:

  • Industry networking opportunities
  • Connections with local businesses
  • Exposure to a global client database
