While ‘post COVID’ is a little premature, the current sentiment in the market really lends itself to thinking about what a career in marketing looks like today.
In the past, there was almost a sure ride from marketing intern to marketing graduate, then depending on which direction you decided to head, a slow ride through from Marketing Executive to Marketing Manager. For the lucky few (those who worked the hardest), Chief Marketing Officer or as we like to call it, CMO.
When you have a marketing agency, it is imperative that you understand the very different dynamics between marketers and other roles within a company. Fundamentally, marketers are very different and like most professions, tend to have triggers that keep their performance at a high, and others that send them in a downward spiral.
We all need a career change here and there – but what we need is to find the role that’s exciting, has endless possibilities and keeps us on our toes!
