What do I need to do to get a job in Marketing?
I've a degree from a very good London Uni in Business Studies, I've run my own company for the last 4 years in which I designed, marketed and sold a number of industry-leading products.

I know I've not taken the "Normal" route to employment by starting my own business, but surely an employment agency/company can see the benefit of my experience? I'm fairly charismatic and have a very good knowledge / experience of marketing. What can I do to get an interview? Thank you Rich
