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

April 2014
Marketing Coordinator:
Pros: I enjoy the variety my job requires such as graphic design, CMS management (back end of website), social media, and event planning. Specific to my organization, I really enjoy the social aspect of marketing our region and working closely with government officials and high-ranking business people. The environment is relaxed but serious about business. Flexible environment to get a haircut, go to the doctor, etc during work hours. There are many perks to this job that involve being invited to important events and networking.
Cons: This job occasionally requires long hours and because we are a non-profit, I believe the compensation is lower than a private company's employee would receive. The dress standard is also high.

"The Day-To-Day."
Marketing Coordinator:
Pros: There is no normal day. Everyday is new and fast-paced. I am always being challenged with new projects and deadlines. I also love working in fashion, it has always been my dream.
Cons: The deadlines can get too tight if decisions aren't finalized which can't make for long hours during busy months, but there is no overtime pay. When promotions keep changing it can be hard to get ahead in your work.

"Looking For Opportunity For Professional Growth."
Marketing Coordinator:
I wish there was more opportunity for professional growth. I am fairly ambitious and thought that I would be able to move forward in this company and really grow a long term career, but the timing of the financial melt down and its effects on the industry really hurt my progress! Now the job market and the way you find a job are completely different than 5 yrs ago and I'm finding it hard to compete. While I really enjoy what I do, I'm starving for more, and I feel forced to remain in a dead-end position, because the job market landscape has drastically changed. My advice; if you are ambitious and have a desire to succeed, research the company and make sure there's room for growth and advancement or make your own opportunities right away, learn what you can, don't get in a rut and move on. Company's (especially a small business) are not loyal, nor are they willing to invest in their employees any more and nor should you, after all it's just business.
