Hey there,
I stumbled accross this forum with great intrest. Basically, i just turned 17 years old and am about to go into university (i was skipped up a year) at Liverpool to study Marketing. I love the idea of marketing and would probably like to go into branding. I hear that it pays very well but is very competitive. has anyone got any information of the this carree feild in genereal.

e.g.

payment prospects, hours worked, tasks that the job entails, competitiveness. etc

also, does anyone know anything about the chartered insitue of marketing and what it means/ does for a member??

Thanks ppl

After reading Jools' post, I am almost fell in love with my Marketing course. Almost.

Anyway, I'm a marketing major, tis' my final year. Pretty dry stuff (not surprising, considering that I'm an aspiring filmmaker type, not exactly a guy who wanna become a professional marketer or something), but I guess it's pretty useful in the long run.

Although it's very competitive, you're in luck because most big companies have a marketing team. Although you'll find it difficult to get interviewed by the major ones like P & G, you shouldn't have a problem getting a marketing job generally.

Duties range from managing marketing campaigns (creating flyers and emails), to copywriting for brochures, to organising nights out and seminars for groups of managers. It's a very challenging and busy job and can be very well paid. The important things are a friendly personality and lots of good ideas - get lots of experience behind you at uni and you'll do really well.

As well as a degree, you can get a CIM qualification after you've built up a year's experience (I think). This involves going to evening classes and working outside of normal hours but will be worth it in the end - you'll get a better job with a higher salary. This aside, hours are pretty standard - 9 to 5.30 or 6 in London.
