Education: College graduates with related experience, a high level of creativity, strong communication and computer skills should have the best job opportunities.
Scope: The marketing industry is expected to increase faster than average, spurred by intense domestic and global competition in products and services offered to consumers. By contrast, a decline in employment is expected in many manufacturing industries. Advertising, marketing, promotions, public relations and sales managers held about 646,000 jobs in 2004; the majority of jobs were held by sales managers.
Marketing jobs are highly coveted and are growing faster than the national average. Of course, the most popular marketing jobs are sales managers. Skip the manufacturing marketing jobs and opt for computers. Who's got the best chance at marketing jobs? Computer skilled and college grads. But you already knew that.Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics
