Marketing jobs may or may not be the most sought after career posts by artsy and adventurous people. While it's true that a job in marketing is not all-creativity, the numbers involved usually don't cause too much damage on a person's work life balance: Marketing surveys and statistics divulge/put to light interesting facts about life and so, there's still the element of fun and whim when analyzing them.
If you're aspiring to become a marketing manager someday, you have to, first, master the general rules of life for a marketing executive. Your work follows you at home, at your gimmick places, among others. You're interested, more than anything else, in the "latests" or the "trends" -- needless to say, you cannot afford to pause on your career endeavors and close your eyes for rest. You have to be aware of what's happening around. You MUST not stop or you'd get left behind.
The best thing about marketing positions is that, even though the premises/circumstances require that you work almost 24 hours a day/7 days a week, it's not gut-wrenching. Rarely do you hear marketing professionals complaining about their professional well-being. They (or at least most of these people) love their jobs because they're not being forced to do things in it.
Well, who wouldn't love being in a marketing job, no matter the sub-field?
- PR jobs are all about socialising with people.
- Events management jobs are well, the dream jobs of many people (Numerous surveys can attest to this fact).
- Marketing communications and direct marketing jobs have the element of prestige in them.
- Research surveys jobs in the marketing field deal with interesting life facts and trivias.
- Singapore design jobs are never a bore due to the country's standing as a fashion/shopping hub.
See how attractive this industry is? But before you go on full job search mode, remember to search jobs in this industry with caution. Remember, marketing managers are savy and you wouldn't want to risk being misunderstood on your ideals.
