What Marketers actually do?
What do I study in college?
Major in something that you are passionate about.
Pick a subject that will help you develop the skills to
CREATE products or services that you enjoy and
have a genuine interest in. If you’re an expert at
something, you can always learn to market it. ;-)
Any major that helps you become a better writer,
speaker and creative thinker is good as well.
Consider communications, design, cognitive
science, marketing or business.
As a Marketer you should be
prepared to evolve
