It's pretty safe to say that at this point, digital marketing jobs (like social media management and Facebook advertising) are basically a staple in the workforce. Meaning if you're looking to build a career, or get a job in something that'll be around for a very long time, choosing something in that field is the way to go.


Whether you've already got a degree under your belt, you're already in a totally different career and looking for a new and fresh challenge, or you're as green as can be, it can be a might seem a little intimidating to learn all there is to know about digital marketing - no matter how fun and interesting the topic is. 

But that's exactly where Toronto's RED Academy comes in to save the day. A brand new type of learning environment, RED Academy has campuses in Toronto, in Vancouver and in London, England, and is more than ready to take on the digital marketing world right along with you.

If you're down for a career in tech, but you can't make up your mind on what exactly you want to do, then no worries. RED Academy totally has your back with its Seasonal Sampler Week

Going down October 24 - 26 at RED Academy Toronto, RED Academy's Seasonal Sampler Week is totally free to attend. Every day during the event, they let you sit in on a sample class in one of the different industries they teach - so you can see what the perfect fit for you is!

The cool thing about RED Academy is that courses last 12 to 24 weeks (which is a lot shorter than traditional University classes) and the courses are designed so that they teach students skills that they not only need to graduate, but they also actually will use every single day in today's fast-paced digital economy. (Like JavaScript, for example, which 80% of developer jobs now require, but isn't taught in most traditional Computer Science degrees). 

Plus, every class is taught by industry expertsand focus on tackling real-world projects and helping students build their portfolios - which is exactly what employers today want. It also means that students aren't just learning through theory, but through real life situations, and being taught hands-on by people who know the material better than the back of their hands!

RED Academy doesn't just make sure you know what you're doing academically, but also in the real world workforce, too! They stick with their students all throughout their time at RED, all the way until they get hired in their new tech career role. In fact, they've helped 95% of their students find a job within 3 months of graduating a full-time program, which is awesome!
