Marketing student in class

Marketing requires a great deal of enthusiasm as well as basic business skills. Marketing managers may study business trends and try to adjust products or services to better fit consumer demands. Marketing representatives may deal with media contacts, working to position the company to leverage public relations opportunities. Further, marketing personnel may also work in advertising, direct sales, or distribution. Marketing is pervasive.
