Do Marketing Jobs/Positions Exist Anymore? Doesn't Seem Like It!!!?
Are there any marketing jobs in san diego or in california in general? I am a recent graduate and barely can find any. I use craigslist, careerbuilder/indeed.com, monster.com, yahoo hot jobs, directly go to corporate web sites, but no luck. It seems like EVERY marketing job is 99% of the time for a "manager", "director", "senior", or some other high position, are there ANY entry-level marketing jobs? I know they are things like marketing analyst, marketing assistant, assistant brand manager, marketing associate/coordinator, etc., but they are barely any. I am willing to go to other states but it seems like it's the same thing over and over, garbage entry level jobs flooding job sites that are door-to-door labelled as "marketing", or manager jobs that I'm obviously not qualified for, what am I supposed to do? Is it the economy? This major? Or something else? I haven't found any schools in California that I can enroll in an MBA because they all require you work first, average age of entrance is normally 27-28 with 4-6 years of work experience. Unless I do an online degree which I wouldnt want to do. *Why are there more managerial positions than entry level? What other functions in a business should I look after? I also try product development, PR, communications, etc. *How can I work for online marketing firms that require things like Search engine marketing experience when I didnt learn that stuff in school? Should I get a certificate in it? Learn it somewhere?

I would check with your college since you recently graduated. The career placement office should be able to help. Another would be your faculty adviser. These people often have contacts within their field of study. Try some of the trade magazines. There are usually jobs advertised in the classified sections. There are... More
