The nature of work is changing fast – and according to some estimates, we’ll change career several times over the course of our working lives. To stay ahead, we’ll need to constantly upskill. Learning won’t just be something you do at school anymore – it’s something you’ll have to continue to do throughout your working life.

The need to continuously develop won’t be any more obvious than in the digital sector, where the only constant is change. New companies and jobs are created all the time, whilst others disappear. iTunes killed the CD – and then Spotify challenged iTunes. Bebo was the next big thing – until Facebook took its crown. Snapchat was the king of stories – until Instagram swooped in and stole its thunder.

THIS IS HOW is a podcast exploring digital roles, with insider tips from industry experts within some of today’s most influential brands. Co-hosts Alex Powis and Bwalya Newton interview the people working at the companies you know, in the jobs you might not, about how their skills play a vital role within the digital industry.

In every episode, they deep dive into a different job role, exploring the guest’s education, experience and career history, giving insight into what’s needed to get to where they are.

You can visit the THIS IS HOW website to learn more about the skills required for these roles, access advice from industry experts and find out what job role could be right for you; you can also participate in the THIS IS HOW quiz to find out jobs which might suit you!
