Finding Career Opportunities at Marketing Conferences
The appeal of marketing seminars and conferences is incredibly broad, so much so that you might not even be aware of everything you stand to gain from the experience when you first go into it. For the most part, the people who sign up to attend are a lot like you—small business owners, company marketing managers, even company presidents who want to immerse themselves in a temporary environment of 24/7 learning to enhance their knowledge about digital marketing. But there are other benefits.
Having the ability to meet and network with others in and out of your industry could open up doors you never knew existed. Sure, your primary objective in attending is probably to learn from seminar and conference presenters and to take part in educational labs. But one of the great by-products is that you get to talk to and forge relationships with representatives of other companies. If you’re a marketing guru for a small company, attending seminars and conferences are a great way to put yourself in the way of marketing career opportunities that you otherwise would have missed by not reaching out.
One such carerr opportunity is DMA2011 Conference & Exhibition, a yearly conference that’s taking place in Boston in October 2011. With a turnout expected to exceed 10,000, you’ll have the opportunity to rub more than just a few elbows. You might even come away from it with a new career path.
