Marketing makes sales easier by developing the perfect marketing mix of product, pricing, promotion, and distribution for its carefully chosen target customers. Professionals in marketing need good communication skills, written and verbal, must enjoy working with people, and, increasingly, must be able to make real-time decisions based on statistical data analysis. However, if you are like most Marketers, you want to get on to the good stuff: career options.

There is not only a high demand for qualified applicants in these professions but those with well-developed strategic vision can expect rewarding career paths.
