What Is Your Ideal Job?


I love this question. I hate not having an answer to it.

Tonight I had an interview at a boutique store near my house. It was awful. Mostly because of my lack of planning but some questions I did not expect, like “What is a pet peeve you have?” It was almost as bad as “What is your greatest weakness?” although I was prepared for that one since I fear it so much. That question, again, is why I’m writing this blog: to find answers! If I don’t know where I’m going, I’ll never get there, right? In order to make myself feel like I’m just a little bit closer to finding that answer, I am going to research some top marketing positions. I’ll be right back…

Here’s What I Learned:

I found a huge, extensive list of marketing positions all across the board at this website, Paladin, a job search engine. Here are a list of ideas

The ones that caught my eye were

For 1-2 years from now:
Marketing Administrative Assistant/Event Planner: Responsible for general office duties: batch mailings, organizing, ordering supplies, task management, prepare reports and powerpoints. Plan company and marketing events.

For up to 3-7 years from now:
Marketing Project Manager: The individual responsible for the direction of analyzing industry results, benchmarking, developing product and pricing. Manages communication with advertising and marketing campaign departments.

I am open to new opportunities to learn as they come along, but at least now I have an answer for the question as well as a new resource to refer to if I change my mind.
