Not long ago, “Digital Disruption” just seemed to be buzz-words being thrown about by politicians and accounting firms in long winded reports and white papers, predicting job security and careers of the next 20-50 years.
But the reality of those words are starting to hit home a lot sooner than predicted for a lot of Australians.

Lately we have noticed more emails from our students saying “After 10 years of hard work, I’ve just been made redundant” or “I’m over 50 and I just can’t get a job any more”. For our students this is actually exciting news, because it means they get to jump in full-time online, managing and growing their website portfolios.
But for most people who haven’t got prepared for the digital future, it’s a frightening and stressful experience.
It’s important to understand what’s coming in the future, the new technologies, what careers are safe and which jobs are at risk – and most importantly know what to do about it so you are prepared.
We created our Digital Kickstarter Program to give people a good grounding and understanding of digital marketing and how to use digital technologies like websites and social media to advance their career, and also generate more future-proof income.
Here are some important future job and career trends, and the steps you can take to start securing your future income:

Our most successful students are the ones who embrace change and learning. We have watched them completely turn their lives around, and get a whole new confidence in their future.
The key is being prepared – because then you can ride the wave, rather than struggling in the wash.
