The demand for marketing and communications professionals is continuing to grow at a fast rate. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment in media and communication occupations is projected to grow 4 percent over the next eight years and will result in the creation of over 46,000 new jobs in this career field alone. This comes in addition to projections of Chief Marketing Officers spending nearly $150 billion by 2023 on search marketing, banner and outstream advertising, instream advertising, and email marketing in the U.S., according to Forrester Research’s recent U.S. Digital Marketing Forecast.
This increased demand stems from a need for competent marketing and communications professionals who can create, edit, translate, and disseminate information through various platforms. The U.S. BLS also predicts overall employment for advertising, promotions, and marketing managers to grow 6 percent through 2029 — substantially higher than the projected annual growth rate of 0.4 percent for overall employment during this period.
So, what does this mean? Marketing communications professionals are not only in-demand, but they can apply their skills in a variety of industries, such as technology, financial services, healthcare, real estate, and more. Modern marketers often must wear multiple hats and be up to date on current trends and best practices.
