How to Land an Entry Level Marketing Job or Internship

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

In a recent discussion with a friend she shared with me that her son was graduating college with a marketing degree, but had not done any internships or landed an entry-level marketing job.

She was concerned and I can understand why.

In today's economy there are many experienced marketing professionals that have been laid off and are looking to re-establish their marketing career by re-entering the workforce. This means that those looking for entry level jobs or  internships will face fierce competition and companies will have to make the decision on whether to hire someone who is experienced or someone who has recently graduated.

What does this mean for college students and new graduates today?

It means you are going to have step up your game. You will need a strategic plan in order to work towards landing the position that you desire.

It's going to take some work as well as patience, but I'm here to share with you information  that can help.

Your turn: Are you a college student or recent graduate that has landed an entry level job or internships? If so, share your success story.
