Where to find Marketing Career Opportunities
There’s an old saying that tells us “No man is an island.” There are also a handful of popular songs that remind us of the same thing, but not a single one of them will help you forge marketing career opportunities if you’re not willing to stop tapping your feet to the rhythm and start moving them ahead, one step at a time.
Just as no single person is an island, neither is any company, regardless of its size. Networking isn’t just for the up and coming and those whose LinkedIn contact lists are abysmally small. Even giant corporations do their share of networking, which should be enough to tell you exactly what you need to know in order to be able to spot and take advantage of marketing career opportunities. But where’s the best place to start?
Industry events, trade shows, and conferences will all provide you with ample opportunity to not only meet with thousands of people like yourself, but also to come into contact with representatives of marketing corporations who are always on the lookout for new talent and new relationships. If you’re involved in direct marketing – whether your forte is email, mobile, social media, print, radio, TV, or traditional mail – attending the DMA2011 (Direct Marketing Association) Conference & Exhibition is a great resource to discover new marketing career opportunities you otherwise wouldn’t have known existed.
