    Marketing Positions

    I'm graduating here in May and am starting the dreaded job hunt. Anybody have any tips or possible job openings around here. I'm already looking on desmoineshelpwanted and ISU CMS website. Any other tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated fanatics!

    No definatly did not just start just getting into crunch time right now. Had one serious offer but turns out it was commission only in which I don't really think would be the best way to go right out of college.

    Are you wanting to get into Sales or a marketing position like advertising, and would you take a job outside the marketing field?

    Re: Marketing Positions

    We are looking for a sales rep, but you'd have to move. For some, that's not an option.

    Re: Marketing Positions

    I will graduate with a major in Marketing. Right now I'm kind of leaning toward Sales but right after college I am not going to be picky at all with the way the job market is. Would be a dumb decision to try and find 1 specific type of job after college.

    I had a lot of success with getting interviews off of CareerBuilder.com. I'm going to end up taking a job I got off of CMS, though.

    Re: Marketing Positions

    Grad school, buddy. If you've even briefly considered it then enroll now, because the longer you put it off the harder it is to go back and start a program later.

    bad advice, grad school is NOT an alternative to entering job market. grad school is a way to go further into debt, delay your career, and perhaps make you unattractive to prospective employers (all school, no experience). my advice to you would be to get a job (any job close to your chosen field will do) and do your best at it. if promotion and opportunity don't come your way in five years, look for new job or consider grad school.

    Take what you can find, and work your *** off.
