Marketing, Advertising and PR

Working in marketing, advertising and PR

Most graduates find their first job in marketing, advertising and PR in roles such as marketing assistant or marketing administrator. Speculative applications can be an important way of finding graduate work.

Graduate schemes are common in this sector and employers recruit graduates with both marketing and non-marketing degrees. However, you are unlikely to get onto a graduate scheme without prior  work experience.

As marketing departments are a feature of most companies, you can find work in many different sectors and with a wide variety of employers and agencies.
