Being a teen or a young adult can be such a hard time for many reasons, but one of the main ones is trying to figure out which career path you want to go down.

We don't get much support with careers at school - they are usually unrealistic about the real jobs that are out there - and today there are lots of "hidden jobs" in the digital space that you might not know about, if you aren't looking in the right place.

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.

On the podcast, they have sat down with a Data Analyst who works on ITV’s Love Island, a Product Designer at Depop, and a Creative Designer at TikTok. They talk to each guest about the job role itself, their education and experience, and what skills they need to work successfully in their digital role.

It’s really interesting to learn about all of these really exciting jobs that you might have never really heard of before, it might help you think more broadly about what you want to do in the future.

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 based on your talents!

Some people know what field they want to work in, for instance in advertising or film or PR, but do they know what specific role they’d want within that field? It can be really overwhelming to try and fit yourself into certain roles. Listeners Zachary and Elana shared their thoughts on the dilemma...
