what you bring to the table

Sales and marketing jobs require a deep understanding of people. In order to effectively sell products or services, you must understand how your audience thinks and what motivates them. You should have some or all of these key skills:

  • you enjoy collaboration
  • you know company products inside out
  • you have an eye for design and layouts
  • time management and ability to prioritize
  • ability to analyze data and campaign results
  • strong writing, editing, and communication
  • you're well-versed in CRM programs, spreadsheets, and other industry software

training and certifications

Most marketing jobs require a post-secondary degree or diploma. While not usually a requirement, a Master's degree can set you apart from others in your field. You can increase your expertise by obtaining certifications in a variety of marketing specialties.

Sales jobs, on the other hand, tend to require high school education, though some companies prefer to hire sales reps with a post-secondary education. That said, if you have a natural sales ability, you may be able to bypass these requirements.

where your career is headed

Opportunities to advance your career are abundant. Many managers and executives start their careers in sales and marketing, as this field hones several skills you need as a leader, such as interpersonal and communication skills, and the ability to think strategically.

Senior roles worth considering include project management, sales or marketing manager, or even executive roles such as marketing director, VP of marketing, or CMO. Sales and marketing skills are highly transferable, so you might consider jobs in related fields such as communications or PR. You could also become a freelancer or consultant.
