What can I do with...

...a marketing degree?

Flummoxed about your career options? This natty little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your marketing degree. 

Sectors

 

Having chosen to do a marketing degree, you might believe that you’re destined to don some trendier-than-thou black framed glasses, acquire a taste for soy latte macchiato and ‘bounce’ creative ideas around an achingly cool office. However, a marketing degree will actually provide you with an excellent platform from which to enter a range of interesting sectors...

Skills

 

Your head might be crammed full of useful marketing knowledge, but your degree will also help you to develop a wealth of useful transferable skills…

Commercial Awareness

You know the business world like the back of your hand. You can look at situations from a commercial perspective and use your business know-how to influence success.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Leadership

You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Numeracy

Forget 2 + 2 = 4, you’ve got the numeracy skills to give Carol Vorderman a run for her money.

Research

Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Social Media

You understand the power of a well-crafted Tweet. You’re a master of the blogosphere. You’re a veritable social media wizard.

Teamwork

You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.

Occupations

 

Like any successful marketeer, you should have a pretty strong idea of what you want to achieve by now. If you’re not quite there yet, though, check out the different roles you could secure with your marketing degree…
