Marketing Careers Overview

Marketing Careers Overview

Marketing careers are the best field for people who like to strategize and identify patterns and trends. If you choose a career in marketing your typical tasks will include approximating the need for products or services, distinguishing potential markets for products or services, monitoring trends, developing pricing and sales strategies and working with staff in public relations, product development and sales departments.

Marketing Education

You may be a go-getter and a natural salesman, but you'll need a bachelor's degree if you have your eye on marketing jobs. Careers in marketing require knowledge of market research, consumer behavior, sales, visual arts and general marketing. Experience as a sales rep or buyer or in advertising or public relations is a plus, but there are few employers who will hire people without degrees for most types of marketing jobs.

Marketing Job Market

Marketing careers are mostly expected to grow a little more than average over the next 10 years. Businesses are always looking to hold onto their share of the market as well as expand to grab a larger chunk of the business. With new products being developed all the time and the economy moving to a global stage more and more, marketers will be needed on an increasing basis. With over 200,000 jobs in 2012, marketing jobs as a whole are expected to increase about 12 percent by 2022.

Marketing Salaries

There are a few different types of marketing careers, but even so, the median pay is fairly good. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics marketing managers are the best paid in the industry with an average salary of over $119,400 annually. Marketing managers who specialize in advertising and promotions earn a little less than that, but at around $115,700, their income is still in the six figure bracket.
