Carear PathCurrently 68,000 Irish jobs are directly linked to those employing digital skills and tools with approximately one in seven Irish people (13.5% of the adult population) making a supplementary income on the internet. The digital economy represents 6% (€12.3bn) of GDP and it is expected to grow to 7.9% (€21.4bn) by 2020. (Department of communications, Climate Action & Environment, 2016). Programme chair Dr Janine McGinn says the demand for this course, in particular MarTech (marketing technology) skills, is well documented in reports such as the recently published Digital Health Index which finds that a mere 5% of small businesses possess web sales abilities despite 59% of customers saying online purchases are important to them. Also, 75% of SMEs struggle to use software and apply digital skills to improve business productivity, analyse customer data, and promote an online presence.
