If you're thinking of a career in digital and tech, our first piece of advice is to sign up to attend #MDTalentDay – the largest digital skills fair in the North.

After you've done that, take a bit of time to find out about our GMCA-backed Switch to Digital campaign.

Switch to Digital is an initiative that aims to educate young people about the exciting and well-paid careers that exist for everybody in the digital and technology industry, regardless of the subjects they studied at school, college or university. 

For anyone interested in the industry, before watching the videos featuring members of Greater Manchester's tech and digital sector that have made the #SwitchToDigital, take a few minutes to read this short guide that outlines a few of the many job roles available in digital and technology that can be obtained regardless of the education pathways and subject choices you may make.
