southernbelle92:  I work in Marketing. I enjoy it because it’s such a large field. There’s partnerships, events, social media, digital marketing, etc. Until you have about 10 years experience it doesn’t pay super well, but around the 10 year mark you’re also at the managerial level and that will pay better. Coprorate jobs will usually pay better than agency, but you’ll get a wider variety of experience at agencies most of the time.

southernbelle92: Define lucrative. Entry level marketing is an entry level wage, but you can work your way up and make six figures eventually, without grad school. 

It’s highly competitive and if you have quantitative skills, you’ll move up faster. It all depends on what you’re good at, interested in, and what employers need. Good luck!

I handle all the marketing for my company. I don’t even have a complete college degree. I get paid well because of the other aspects of my job. But the trade show and advertising management happen to be my favorite tasks. My personal experience is that it doesn’t matter what the paper says – you truly can get places with hard work and dedication. It also helps to do something you enjoy, or even don’t hate lol.

The term marketing itself is very broad – what specifically are you doing now, what do you enjoy doing, and where do you want to be?

I am in marketing. I deal mostly in graphic design and brand awareness. I make a little bit above average salary for my age in my state and I have been with the company for three years. I am pretty comfortable. 

With that said, I am at a company that values it’s employees and I get a steady raise every year. I have a BA in communications with a concentration in multi-media and I love my job because I feel like I am putting my degree to good use and I actually do not feel the need to dig myself into an even deeper debt with grad school. My job is secure, I am paid well, I work for a great company and I love my job! 

Like a PP said, marketing is a broad term. The kind of company you are in marketing for, your experience and location is all a factor in how lucritive or non-lucritive it can be.

southernbelle92:  I assist with our Marketing Department quite a bit and I really enjoy it.

I work for a mall, so there is always a lot going on. The only thing is, I know so many people here who have their bachelors in Marketing and still work in a retail store. They all say that jobs are so hard to find. Then again, I live in southern Califorria so that may affect the job market – everyone here wants to be in marketing!

I have my AA in business and have been with this company for several years before i was promoted to work as an admin assistant. I assist all departments, but mainly Marketing. I havent really decided which department to pursue, but as i said since I do so much for Marketing, i am leaning towards that.
