There are many benefits of doing a marketing degree, but one of the best perks is being able to open multiple doors in different industries.
Fashion runways, sports events, the red carpet…these are tough spaces to get into. It’s always the most glamorous sectors, such as the world of fashion or the music industry that seem to capture our hearts.
Everyone is lining up for the fashion buyer job. People are queuing to be the next music video producer. As a result, supply and demand can be one of the main barriers to entering an industry, because too many people want to do the same thing!
Jobs in marketing are a great way to enter your dream industry and could mean less competition and a better chance of getting hired. Furthermore, you’ll be able to work in these dynamic environments while still getting to be creative, with a good salary to boot.
Marketing is a great field to get into because it applies to every industry and sector. From shops to business services, food products to technology, marketing is everywhere. It’s even important for healthcare, charities and government bodies.
Every business, brand or organisation has a marketing function, which makes a marketing degree highly sought after by employers. Graduates can overcome the main barriers to entering an industry by developing skills that are in demand.
If you dream of working in an industry such as fashion, marketing could be a viable route that could see you in the heart of the action.
Other reasons to consider marketing:
- Marketing projects are exciting and creative
- It can be hands-on, so you’ll learn a lot in a short space of time
- You’ll be able to use your skills anywhere, meaning you can switch sectors!
- Generally, it offers a good work/life balance
- It’s a social job with plenty of teamwork and collaboration
- Lots of opportunities for career growth
