Digital CV’s and Salaries: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!

It’s almost here! Our very first (of many) #LeadingLadies events whereby women in senior leadership positions will be speaking about workplace related topics that will inspire, empower & encourage others to be the best version of themselves.


The digital job market is ever evolving.  Whether this be with hybrid roles and new technologies that require Talents to be constantly upskilling, at Agency Iceberg, we often hear digital folk ask the following questions to our Talent Agents;


  • What salary should I ask for in my job interview? OR Can I even discuss salary at a job interview?
  • What should or shouldn’t my digital CV include? How can I make it stand out?
  • I have 10+ years industry experience in Graphic Design and have just completed a UX Design course, can I add an extra $15K-$20K to my base salary in my next role? Why/Why not?
  • In  my next role, should I jump sides and go client-side/agency side?
  • What do digital careers in the future look like? And how can I stay up to date with current trends?


We’ve hand picked four of our stand-out #LeadingLadies to specifically share with you the latest trends across the Australian digital landscape and share their personal experiences as to how they landed their current roles, and how YOU can also break into the industry.


On the panel, the following #LeadingLadies will be breaking down the good, the bad and the ugly of digital CVs and salaries:

Ange Lin (Executive Digital Producer at CBUS)

Harriet Wray (Operations Manager at CHE Proximity)

Julia Birks (UX Lead at Isobar)

Ally Watson (Founder of Code like a Girl)
