Digital marketing has revolutionized the industry, and the job market. Corporate marketing departments and marketing agencies struggle to recruit and retain qualified professionals for career paths that did not exist three years ago, while academic institutions are faced with the need to adapt curriculums to the real-time nature of business.

Forward-thinking organizations seek hybrid professionals who are highly proficient writers, analytical, creative and tech savvy, with strong competencies in business, IT and human behavior. These next-generation professionals excel in emerging core marketing disciplines such as email, mobile, analytics, social networking, web, search and content. They envision on a strategic level, building fully integrated campaigns, and they have the capabilities to execute on the tactical level, conducting activities that drive real business results.  

In this Brown Bag, Roetzer and Lewis will highlight how young professionals can become hybrids, and keep their skills sharp in a world revolutionized by change.
