Best Jobs for Young People: Marketing Manager is Number One!

8 Oct

Would it surprise you to learn that — according to Glassdoor – the number one job for young adults is marketing manager? :-)

As reported by Aaron Taube and Skye Gould for Business Insider:

“As young people determine who they’re going to be, one of the top concerns on everybody’s mind is finding a job that will make them happy. That’s why Glassdoor set out to determine the 10 best jobs for people in their 20s. To compile the list, Glassdoor looked at job reviews left on its site by employees between the ages of 20 and 29 over the past three years. In each of the reviews, employees rated their job satisfaction on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being very dissatisfied and 5 being very satisfied.”

“Twenty-somethings gave marketing manager an average satisfaction rating of 4.0, making it the top job for young professionals. Glassdoor community expert Scott Dobroski says its appeal lies in the way it gives young people the best of both worlds: a clear, defined career path alongside the opportunity to be creative in a collaborative environment.”

Take a look at the infographic prepared by Business Insider.

Pardot, a B2B marketing automation provider and part of salesforce.com, has developed an interactive, provocative Web site on jobs that people have/do:

How many hats do you wear? Marketing automation has many features and capabilities that can simplify the lives of marketers. But if you’re an army of one, wearing a million hats and running your company’s marketing department with limited manpower and resources, the prospect of learning and maintaining a marketing automation system may not sound simple at all — in fact, it may sound impossible. But consider this: Pardot’s own marketing team started as a one-woman powerhouse, backed by nothing more than our own marketing automation product. Let’s take a look at a few of the ways that marketers with limited time and resources can use marketing automation to accomplish the work of a much larger marketing department — and hopefully start shedding their multiple ‘hats’ one by one.”
