Should clearly let me write your cover about how analytical you are and how your a team player and you want to develop long lasting relationships with clients and gain a broad understanding of how business is conducted around the world.

Yea, that's what I've been told. I've got a pretty good resume sent to interview ratio. Just feel like I need to find the right position/place. It seems like a lot of places I'm interviewing for don't need to hire right this moment, I'm getting a lot of "it would be nice if we could find someone to do X and X" or "We are looking into moving X position in house".

While we are on the topic:

 

Career fair at my business school next week. You could apply for interviews with 5 companies.

Since my masters is in brand management/strategy/marketing I applied for retailers, e-commerce companies and some consulting firms. Only got one interview with a national management consulting firm that work with tech solutions for logistics and retailing.

 

Anyways, I've started to think that straight traditional marketing might not be my thing. My whole class feels like a bunch of super-extraverted girls who love communication and advertising. I'm more into marketing research, intelligence, analytics and that kind of thing. 

 

From looking at various blogs and companies, it seems like marketing is going to be all about technology, automatization, big data, online tracking, etc, very soon. None of that "push out the company's fantasy vision on big billboard and TV".

 

So I'm considering taking another degree in informatics. Just need to take 3 semesters for a BSc. Would focus on databases, data modeling, enterprise architecture, some programming, etc. Might also take some more statistics. There's a data mining class I could take. Since I will go back to entry level studies I can manage to work part-time.

 

Anyone here who works in a similar field and has input if my idea is bad or not?

I think you should go into investment banking. The skills you need are probably less then that in marketing. Can you make pie charts, change fonts and read boring financial statements to pull numbers from.



Might start charging people to do their CVs and cover letters, im really good at this. People have no idea what to write. This is what the girl had in her CV initially as work experience

"intern, Property development/ project management unit,
Attended meetings which discussed prospects of new current projects by examining demographics, land potential, economic factors, the effect of political policies, legislative matters as well as the influence of corruption.
• Conducted research to supply information concerning social demographics and trends
• Helped organise the brainstorming on tackling certain projects concerning specific details in both the décor and its execution"

DGAF about brainstorm or corruption, no tired banker with 200 of these wants to read that and try pick out important words.

"Property Development Analyst M2 Real Estate Jul 2014-Aug 2014
Used quantitative and qualitative techniques to analyse development prospects by examining demographics, land potential and various economic factors."

Like half as long, now shes an analyst and both quantitative and qualitative are in there. CV was like 4 pages long when she gave it to me.

Lol, how unexpected of you :)

I know it's not the typical fit for marketing, which is why I'm considering studying informatics so I can go into something like data analysis for marketing and business development, alternatively develop marketing automation systems. I think I'd actually hate to work with marketing in the typical sense with copy writing, creating ads and that sort of thing.

 

Not really interested in finance, and there's like a couple of thousand of students in the Nordic who would prob be better candidates for that than me.

I'm in marketing. I sound like the exact flip flop of you, I really enjoy the communications part. I was a marketing manager for a big name in the technology industry and from my experience your assumptions are party right. It's a lot of automization & technology through Marketo and Salesforce, Marketo and Salesforce constantly looking at your business / website tracking and ranking leads. They both have a ton of analytics built in to nerd out about to prove how your marketing campaigns are increasing ROI etc. What I enjoy most about the field: having the marketing automation running at a smooth and efficient pace is a great feeling, i like writing copy, i like branding, and i like going to tradeshows and interfacing with customers.

I'm hoping to land a spot at a laid back firm or company. I had to wear practically a suit to work to sit at a computer all day, just didn't think that was right.

My quest to get running fit is progressing right on track. I'm now down 16 pounds, with another 18 to go. My goal is basically 9% body fat, which would put me at 173 pounds (I'm 6'0").

Thanks for the input.

 

Well, I like to interact with people too and enjoy the branding parts as well (maybe not writing social media content) but I think long term the tech skills can pay off.

 

What you say is exactly what I meant. From browsing job sites, I've seen many positions that ask for a combination of knowledge within web design, basic programming, statistics, and databases. Some even stretch it to knowing SAS, R, time series analysis, data mining, etc... and this is for a position within marketing in-house or at a specialized marketing research firm.

 

I think you are less overly educated in the US, but do you know if any of your guys in marketing have a background in comp science/informatics or statistics?

Writing Social Media content is a drag. Luckily I only did that for 6 months at my internship then other jobs I had someone under me to do that. SAS is actually in my town, been looking at working for them I hear it's a great company.

I've known a few people in marketing with a comp science backgrounds. It helps to understand the technology you're selling. Statistics absolutely, that's a whole area where i'd like to learn more just to understand it but I never enjoyed it much to deep dive.

Great. 

 

Will most likely keep studying then for another year or so and handpick classes from informatics and statistics that seem relevant to the field.
