I finished my assignment! *Holds for applause*
I actually finished it a week or two ago, and I’ve been blissfully enjoying some “no study” time. I forgot how nice it was to go home after a long day at work and relax, watch television, do some house chores etc. I won’t find out what grade I have for this assignment until March in the new year…
So I’ve decided to take the plunge and carry on with my CIM marketing studies. I’m now commencing level 4, which will be a year long course this time, and because I struggled so much with the distance learning aspect, my manager has agreed that I can do the course where I’ll attend a few workshops. Although it will still be distance learning, I think the workshops will help the information sink in…. I’m much more used to a teacher – student environment!
On this course I’ll be doing three modules, digital marketing (elective), integrated communications and marketing (in that order). I’m looking forward to the digital marketing module, as I think this is where marketing is moving to now with new modern marketing applications.
In the meantime I’m also teaching myself how to do a basic html email newsletter for work. It’s amazing how little there is out there for people who do not have a clue about anything when it comes to html, from where to create the code, to where to put the code to create the email. Madness.
