Math & physics graduates who can write in complete sentences are wildly qualified to learn to make money.
Picture the career you want in 5 years. What are you doing this week to work towards that? iNET specializes in pushing smart people along the path of careerism. You must live at the edge of your comfort zone, studying and tinkering on your way to new and increasing mastery.
If you can research a topic and churn out a decent paper the night before it's due, you can contribute. That alone puts you at a decent living year one.
If you can hold a couple variables in your head (you can), there’s a ton of $ to be made in SEO. There’s a lot of fluffy hippy-dippy hipster social-media-manager roles in digital marketing. This aint that.
Manipulating search engines through analysis of user behavior (what pages do converters land on after typing what kinds of keywords?) is an art and science. It’s grown incredibly in the last 5 years and will continue to do so the next 10 years, but what the career entails in 10 years for high performers will be a lot different than what it is today.

You must grow from your beginning abilities to create real results to break through six figures.
Trillions of dollars are moved by the order in which information is presented through search engines like Google. Your ability to impact that for businesses is your ability to tap into that money for yourself.

Your own expectations of yourself must rise with each pay increase. It will never get easier. Excuse makers, explainers, rationalizers, and victims need not apply. You must live just beyond your edge. If you are just looking for comfort look elsewhere.
Creative is an intangible. There aren’t many great creatives in radio. In branding there are less. In strategizing there are even less. Most companies have no BRAND.
