Career Paths

With so many options for marketing career opportunities, we’d love to highlight some of our favourites. Griffith College is proud to set up our students for a successful career

One possible career path is within the advertising world. If you’re looking to explore consumer behaviours and possibly delve into a more creative side of marketing, a position as an advertising manager or content strategist could be for you. Make sure to bring your newly-pruned communication skills to the first day of work, as group work is very important within the industry!

In recent years, the demand for digitally-aware employees has increased exponentially. With a degree in marketing, one could venture into the area of digital marketing, including the newer era of social media, or focus on SEO research. One of our students, Ana, described her experience in the Marketing course and how it prepared her for a future job: “Digital Marketing was another interesting one; besides the amount of theory, the lecturer made it a compelling subject. Digital Marketing is one of the areas I am most inclined towards as a potential career path as social media and digital channels are really big areas within companies today.”

Another possibility could be taking a look at the sales side. Whether you are managing a sales team, or analysing your company’s sales strategies and turnout, the sales side of marketing requires your fresh adaptability. Through your education, you’ll be equipped with how your consumers think, and therefore be able to boost your sales strategies. A very impressive skill to show your boss!
