So, if you’re thinking you need a degree in marketing to work in marketing then think again!
Whether, you’re a graduate thinking about your career options once you graduate. Or maybe you’re a student unsure of the best type of degree to go for if marketing is your desired career path – or maybe you’re just not sure whether or not to go to university, the good news is that in my experience YOU REALLY DON’T NEED A MARKETING DEGREE. 🎓
For me and my friends NONE of us did marketing degrees. Although we all went to university the degrees we did were varied to say the least, so it shouldn’t stop you from pursuing a career in the industry. If you are at uni then you also have those fantastic things called transferable skills, so whether you’re someone who is really creative, or maybe prefers the analytical, data side of marketing then there is definitely a job for you.
University or not though then everyone out there has the fantastic ability to learn marketing and put it into practice. Employers value skills and experience so much more than knowing everything in theory. So, head out there and learn a skill and try and put it into practice. Build a website or build a social campaign for something you’re passionate about! Even if it doesn’t work out in the way you planned it’s still a fantastic experience that you can put on your CV that will impress employers.
This isn’t to say that doing a marketing degree is the wrong thing to do. A traditional marketing degree is hugely beneficial in teaching you the traditional fundamentals of business, marketing and the thinking that goes into everything we as marketers do – but it shouldn’t prevent you from getting either a rewarding job or career in the digital marketing industry.
