Working in marketing, sales and advertising with a degree (or similar)
Many employers recruit graduates and they are especially interested in people who want to move into management jobs in marketing, sales and advertising.
Employers will usually take on graduates with a degree that isn’t related to marketing or advertising and then train them in the business. For a job in technical sales, you may need a higher education qualification in a subject such as engineering, electronics, technology or science. It is also possible for people who have gained the necessary technical knowledge elsewhere to move into this kind of sales work without a degree.
Get as much experience as you can working in different industries as marketing isn’t always the same in every company.
