How does one get a marketing job.?

I have experience in finance for 3 years. I have my undergraduate degree in business administration and I majored in marketing. I can not get a marketing job for the life of me. I have tried everything from every local marketing company in my city to every search engine possible. How does one get a job in the marketing or advertisment industry when the companies want 10+ years of experience . I need help?

    Go to a temp agency and get hired on at a small firm. Then work your way up to a bigger one. Otherwise work for an outlet. Work in radio, tv, print, or billboards. At least if you have some remotely related background people will give you a better look than just the finance work.

    clinmb the corporate ladder. ask the company’s you have applied for if they have any other openings in the same filed as what you are applying for! maybe they want you to try at the buttom then put you up. imagine that you own the company! what would you do and what if the person shows interest and gives knowledge of what you do? wouldnt u give that person a chance????

    It sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders when it comes to marketing and business. Have you looked into network marketing? I started my own home-based health and wellness business sharing proprietary products that are pure, safe, and beneficial. They are formulated in Switzerland, made in the US and target 6 key consumer markets. There are over 350 consumable products giving you a nice residual check rather then a 1 time sale. This is where you’re going to make your money. My sponsor now makes more in 1 month then she did in an entire year. It’s a secure and stable company (been in business 27 years), debt free with a low $29 start up cost, no territories to limit growth, no inventory, no sales requirements, unlimited income potential, free on-line training, on line support, committed leadership, Mercedes Benz car program, free trips and vacations, on line and toll free ordering with direct shipping, with the most generous compensation plan in the industry. We share premium products and an opportunity. The company is booming with an average of 111% growth every year since 2002 so now would be an great time to get involved. I will be happy to help you learn more if you’re interested. Good luck.

    Cory, I know someone in the same boat. I don’t know what it is but if you do find someone advertising they want someone with years of experience. Here is an interim (or permanent) idea that is online marketing: It is legit and earning potential is unlimited. It doesn’t happen on day one but if you work hard at it you can really build a career. Good Luck!
