Marketing is creative and dynamic — it’s an ongoing process of discovering what consumers want and delivering value to them by offering the right product at the right time and place. Marketing involves people skills, sales skills, communication skills, analytical skills, creative skills, and initiative skills. Want to help rollout new products and work to improve the perception of those products by the media then you may be well suited for a career in marketing.
If you are interested in working in marketing, promotions, public relations, advertising or sales, you should be mature, creative, highly motivated, flexible, and decisive. The ability to communicate persuasively, both orally and in writing, with other managers, staff, and the public is vital. Marketing, advertising, promotions, public relations, and sales manager jobs are highly coveted and will be sought by other managers or highly experienced professionals. In particular, employers will seek those who have the technical, analytical, and creative skills to conduct advertising, marketing, promotions, public relations, and sales activities in all media areas.
