If you want to start a career in the field of marketing consulting, you better keep these things in mind:
1. You’ll increase your chances of being hired by consulting firms or get more clients (if you are a freelancer) if you have a degree in commerce, business, and advertising. You must also be computer literate and you must be fluent in English. You must also have the capability to create written communications like brochure and internal newsletters. It would also help if you have the ability to develop strong working relationship with your clients and with their internal/external partners.
2. Find the best consulting firm. Should you decide to work for a consulting firm, you can start doing your research online to determine which firms are needing consultants these days. List down all the firms and make sure that they can offer you with attractive salary and incentive package. Send your resume to all these firms and wait for an interview.
3. Prepare for your interview. You will need to project a professional image during your interview. Show up with your best suit. Be confident and talk to your interviewee while maintaining a good eye contact. Make sure that you prepare for your interview. Anticipate all the questions that your interviewee might throw at you and prepare the best answer. The more prepared you are, the higher your chances of being hired.
4. Should you decide to become a freelancer, I recommend that you build your own website and learn the best ways to promote yourself and your service online to easily convince your prospects to sign up.
