Most people want to find that full-time job they can rely upon. However, typical 9-5 marketing jobs are not as common as they once were. (No, we are not saying they are going anywhere – things are just evolving with the times.) As one of the most innovative and ever-changing industries, marketing careers, roles, and responsibilities are changing just as fast as new technologies come to market.
For marketing professionals, this means becoming more flexible and expanding the type of marketing jobs they are willing to consider. Whether you have just finished school and are entering the job market, are a seasoned marketing professional, or are even a marketing executive, a marketing job does not always mean a full-time position anymore.
The good news is there are many opportunities for marketers in all industries, and with companies of all shapes and sizes around the world.
The beauty of taking on these roles is that you can take on one or more positions simultaneously. You will also have more flexibility in the type of companies you work for and the type of work you do.
The drawback is that you will need to be regularly seeking out new opportunities as your current roles change over time.
