The following attributes would certainly come in useful: Being interested in marketing Alright, perhaps there are a few more things that would be beneficial but having a keen interest in marketing is certainly a good starting point. Unless you’ve been living in a cave (in which case you’ve done well to come across this blog), the all-pervading nature of modern marketing means that we are all aware of its influence and significance. As with any media job, you should also have good interpersonal skills; some commercial acumen, creativity and being able to work well in a team would also help. Marketing in the 21st century can be a difficult concept to qualify, because of the enormous range of business activities it covers. With the growing prominence of social media and the online world in everyday life, digital marketing and online advertising in particular have become a hugely important part of any concerted marketing strategy, with PPC and SEO functions commanding an ever higher chunk of the budget. A professional qualification, such as those offered by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), will definitely come in handy when it comes to persuading a potential employer that you know what you’re talking about. In fact, if you actually have a CIM qualification, chances are you actually will know what you’re talking about – even better! Indeed, a good understanding of marketing is not just important for pure marketing jobs – the Chartered Institute of Public Relations recently reported on the convergence of marketing and PR and the need to be well versed in areas such as copywriting and design, and of course social and digital media management. So if you have some experience of marketing and building on it, visit our website www.media-contacts.co.uk for a full list of our vacancies or call 020 7359 8244.
