1. Fashion marketing can also be broken down into a number of specialized careers. Fashion buyers travel to runways and exhibits around the world to find the season's hottest trends. Fashion coordinators actually put together the runway shows, catalogs, and ads. There are also merchandise managers who work within stores or departments, taking care of everything from selecting to selling fashions.

3. A degree in marketing prepares you for careers in the marketing world, whether you're looking to break in or to build up an existing career. Marketing degree programs combine the mathematical and statistical courses of an accounting degree with the organizational focus of a business major, plus the human behavioral studies of the liberal arts. And of course there are the added Web-based and e-commerce marketing principles to master.
A bachelor's degree in marketing--often a business administration degree with a marketing focus--takes longer than an associate's degree, but rewards you with better job opportunities. Your higher-level career choices upon graduation can include management-level jobs in marketing, sales, retail merchandising, promotions, and marketing research.
Marketing can be applied to almost every occupational field. Students often look for entry or advancement opportunities in advertising agencies, PR firms, corporate marketing, marketing research, brand management sales and retailing departments, and customer relationship management. And don't overlook the career opportunities in a non-profit organization such as registered charities, arts groups, and special interest communities.
4. Graduates find work in advertising and integrated communication agencies, and as in-house specialists in larger organisations. Foundation units in the major introduce the theory and practice of advertising, and develop skills and knowledge in marketing and audience research and consumer behaviour. Two units then focus on tactical skills in the key professional areas of advertising copywriting and media planning. The major is completed by units that focus on understanding advertising at a more strategic level, including the application of strategic planning and management to advertising practice.
5. A communication major focuses on much of the same coursework as public relations, advertising, journalism, corporate training, marketing, and business management. It's a generalist path with a wide-ranging curriculum that can be tailored to work in a variety of specific industries.
Courses in economics, finance, management, marketing, and sociology can round out your communication studies and help with your entry to or advancement in the workforce. An introduction to specific fields such as engineering, computers, and biotechnology can also be important if you're looking at a career within one of these industries. Familiarity and some expertise with modern media can also be crucial. You'll need to know web design and appropriate language rules if you'll be communicating to your audience via a company webpage. If you'll be working with the media, you should understand the technical aspects of radio, television, or digital imaging.
Jobs in corporate communications are expected to grow faster than average; growth for non-management public relations professionals will hold steady. Job competition is strong, with preference given to candidates with industry-specific knowledge, communications training, and appropriate internship or volunteer experience.
A public relations specialist works on developing and maintaining a favorable image for an individual or organization. They work for consulting firms or large corporations, doing research and compiling data, writing reports, news releases and promotional pieces, and coordinating special event and meeting opportunities for target groups. If there's a launch for a new product, the public relations person prepares and distributes the information for the media, coordinates the location and logistical aspects of the meeting, writes the speeches and briefs the executives on answering questions, and establishes themselves as the liaison for any further information. They plan for the worst-case scenario by having generic news releases ready for emergency distribution and by educating key personnel on the value of "no comment" until they've had a chance to assess the situation and decide how best to present the information and what informatio
