Becoming part of the creative, digital and tech world

As part of Open Studios Week we invited Gem Barton author of ‘Don’t Get a Job...Make a Job, to talk about modern strategies and approaches to finding work and 'making it' in the digital sector..

Focusing on the innovative ways to create your own opportunities, Gem discussed using social media, networking, and explored some of the unique routes people have taken into the sector through the sharing of case studies and advice.

Don’t worry if you missed it though as you can watch her entire talk right here! And if you want to see  more about the case studies be sure to check out Gem’s new book :‘Don’t Get a Job...Make a Job.’

Feeling Inspired? We're here to help! You're probably already aware that we manage a local specialist Jobs Board where you can sign up for Job Alerts to make sure you don't miss out on all the latest opportunities.

But did you know that you can also upload your CV to our database which is something we're seeing our member companies use more and more now. So it's really important to add yours as it's often the first place employers look when advertising roles on the Wired Sussex website. -You never know; you might even get headhunted for the job of your dreams without ever needing to do more than follow this link!

Don't forget we also have a huge amount of careers advice, information and tips about the sector and more, all available here on our website. You can also research who you'd really love to work for and where to network with them. Follow us on Twitter too where you can get to see the latest jobs first.

So what are you waiting for? There's a whole lot of opportunity waiting to be grabbed!
