Marketing Sales & Service
What is Marketing Sales & Service?
Careers in the Marketing cluster are primarily geared toward making sure that products and services are effectively presented to and sold to those who may be inclined to purchase them. While there are a lot of careers on the advertising side of this cluster, the bulk of the actual positions are in sales. Sales within itself can have a wide range of potential outcomes due to the varying industries it has to support. A successful salesperson in the pharmaceutical industry would more likely than not make significantly more than a successful retail salesperson or cashier. The volatility of sales makes it a good place for those without a wealth of education to be able to obtain a job and potentially earn a good income; however, the advertising and market analytics side of the cluster would generally require the completion of a four-year college degree.
