Consider sharing it with your friends.

Two students who ask the best questions will win a free autographed copy of #AskGaryVee, so make them good!

Most of you will have a dozen or more jobs in your lifetime. Some job changes will also mean a different career. Switching jobs is hard enough, career changes can require years of training and acclimating just to be at the same level you were previously. 

Formal education and training is an excellent way to prepare for a career, but like all things there are strengths and weaknesses. For example, in this class you've learned the theory of digital marketing but very little of what its like to work as a digital marketer. 

This real world knowledge can be acquired in two ways: experience and learning from the experience of others. As we have over ten years of experience in the field, we'd like to share the lessons we've learned. 

A portion of our final class will be dedicated to a Q&A where you can ask us anything related to digital marketing or careers. We can discuss "war stories" like the worst project we ever worked on, how we started our businesses or how to go about getting a great job. 

For your last participation assignment, submit a question you'd like us to answer in the comments section. We'll select a handful of questions to get the Q&A started before opening it up to general questions.
