RED Academy honestly changed my life in SO MANY WAYS!

I was in the 2019 summer cohort. Some background information, I went to a university in Ontario and I have a degree in Commerce. While at university, I took a course in Digital Marketing which sparked my interest in the field. However, that course was so vague as it was only 3 hours every week only for 2.5 months. After graduating, I found out about RED and decided to go for it!

Fast forward to the actual course and RED. The instructors are AMAZING, they are so knowledgeable, and they are in the field themselves. I learned more from them than I did from and professor at university. It was very cool to have instructors who have digital marketing agencies and have started multiple businesses through digital marketing efforts. It helps provide so much insight into the practicality of the field. The actual content was so relevant and helpful. They deep dive into EVERYTHING digital marketing related. There are many guest lecturers that come teaching about different parts of the field they are currently working in. You make a lot of great connections through these networks and in general at RED academy. I learned a lot here and the client projects are an amazing way to get hands-on experience on what you are learning. You are able to experience every role in digital marketing and find what you are truly passionate about.

There are a lot of things going with the culture and environment of RED as well. There are monthly waffle days, weekly Friday socials (games night, karaoke, dinner, etc.)

Now, post-grad, through the help of RED academy -through the talent connect event (you set up a booth and employers from big companies come to recruit RED students) & applying to jobs with the experience and skills I gained at RED Academy, I was able to get 2 job offers!!!

This school is truly amazing, and they did everything they said they would and MORE! I would recommend everyone to go to this school and if you have any questions about the school or want more details on my experience, feel free to reach out to me (find me on LinkedIn).

Course doesn’t deliver, and they know it. Exercises in class are minimal, and disorganized. Material is presented by ‘bullet point’, with aimless banter being mistaken as context. They work very hard to recruit students as young and green as possible. A $100 video course online would have delivered more content and been more interactive. There are decent schools out there. This isn’t one of them.
