Actual Comments from the holder of this Actual Career

 

How do you feel about this Actual Career?
This career is a fun, exciting career. The potential is there to make a good salary. However, because this job is tied to advertising, it is often the first area that major companies cut to reduce costs.

Was your degree helpful in your career field?
yes

In your opinion, what kind of education did you need to get this career?
Marketing or communications degree. MBA would be helpful, however, with an MBA you would probably work on the client side of the business, not the service side.

Experience, Skills, Specialized Training, Licenses, or Certifications:
I have over 20 years of marketing experience before moving to the service side of the business. This is helpful in developing programs for clients and managing budgets.

Just one more thing….
