Marketing Coordinator Advice

Q: What is it like working as a Marketing Coordinator?

Marketing Coordinator in Chicago:
"Think about sitting all day..."
Before you go into a field like marketing, consider the amount of sitting you have to do and the effects it has on your health. I basically have to sit all day and look at a computer screen. Neither of which is great for my health. I really wish I considered this before going into a field where I have to sit most of the day.

"Marketing at TBG."

Marketing Coordinator in Richmond:
Pros: Great health benefits.
Cons: The down time and doing the time-consuming admin work, like scanning 500 business cards into a software. The business is extremely unorganized and against change, even if it's for the better. Employees are not trusted, especially if they are younger. Their opinions and recommendations are not taken seriously, even if there are numbers to back it up - Management goes with whatever they want to do regardless of the facts.

It's a multi-disciplined position where you juggle many hats, including graphic designer, marketer, strategist, and coordinator.
