Marketing careers? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Im doing Marketing in September at Preston, and I was just wondering what kind of careers this could lead to?

    The information from the unis can be very broad.

    Marketing Executive; becoming a consultant for companies who wish to expand their marketing for a specific area/brand;

    Perhaps a sales based role? New Business Development or similar? But it all depends on what you want to do.

    Depends which area of marketing you are interested in really.

    I mean you could end up working for various types of company, e.g. in the marketing dept of a specific firm, or in a Direct Mail/Market Research/Ad agency etc.

    Obviously it's a competitive area, so getting valuable work experience can enhance your CV
