Squared Online taught Chris as much about himself as it did digital marketing

Last year, Chris James realised that he needed a career change - his current job simply wasn’t for him. And so, he decided to take a bold leap into the unknown and hand in his resignation. That same day, he enrolled on Squared Online.

How did Chris find Squared Online?

Marketing was a completely new field for Chris. “In fact, I thought marketing was ‘just advertising’ before I looked into Squared!” He did, however, expect a dynamic and forward-looking course which would introduce him to the concepts and frameworks of digital marketing. That was why he chose Squared Online over other marketing courses - it sounded like the most engaging and exciting.
