Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The marketing industry hasn't been as badly affected by the recession as many others, and so lots of graduates from all kinds of subjects go into it - with marketing graduates doing so more often than others. A lot of the jobs are in London, but graduates don't just go to work in advertising agencies. All sorts of industries do their own marketing these days, and with the rise of digital and mobile technology, a lot of marketing is done in quite innovative ways, using a wide range of methods. A lot of jobs in this industry are handled through recruitment agencies, so if you get in touch with them early, that might give you a headstart for some of the jobs available. But be careful – unpaid working is not the norm in the marketing industry, but it is more common than in most sectors.
