The Marketing and PR sector is likely one of the most varied of all business sectors simply because there are so many different brands, different strategies, and different platforms.

One fantastic thing about entering the marketing and PR sector is that all of your skills and strengths can be used to contribute to marketing in some way or another. From an outgoing individual advertising a new product on the high street to an experienced writer penning down intriguing information on a cutting-edge service for online readers.

There are many more positions in the marketing sector than simple advertising however, there is also work to found in brand management, company image, campaign management and much more.

What’s Expected?

When it comes to entering the marketing and PR sector, the experience and qualifications required vary from position to position, and from employer to employer. Don’t let this put you off of higher up positions though, as many find that they can climb the marketing and PR career ladder with enough time and dedication.

Roles such as advertising an establishment, service or product directly to customers through mediums such as the internet, through leafleting, or in-person usually do not require any specific qualifications. These types of jobs usually look for specific skills in potential candidates, such as being great with communication, being able to create content, and being motivated about the brand you are advertising. If you are looking to get your foot in the door of the marketing and PR sector, this can be a terrific starting point.

If instead you are looking to find more specialised positions within the marketing and PR sector, this is where prior experience and qualifications really matter. Managing the image and reputation of a business is extremely important as bad marketing can take down a whole company at worst.

Roles such as a campaign manager or head of PR often require applicants to have a degree in some type of marketing, varying years of experience in similar roles, and evidence of working effectively in critical marketing situations in the past. If you meet all of these requirements, then a core role in a large company’s marketing department is the perfect place for you.
