Is it right for me?
Whilst there are many different specialisms of Marketing, traits of an all-round great marketer include:
• A creative mind that is able to invent new ways to promote products and brands
• A collaborative people person who can get in the minds of the customer and brainstorm and develop ideas
• An analytical thinker who is able to evaluate and react
• A tech savvy individual who can keep up with current trends
What qualifications do I need?
Entry level qualifications for marketers vary from role to role but companies typically prefer a candidate with a degree
related discipline or Chartered Institute of Marketing qualification. However, a career in Marketing is not exclusive to
those with an academic background and many entrants have spent their careers to date working in the related fields
of sales or advertising – areas in which academic attainment is secondary to experience and industry knowledge.
So not having a specific degree or diploma isn’t always a necessity.
