Who’s Hiring in the Marketing Industry: Top Gigs and How to Snag One

Whether you’re new to the marketing industry or a seasoned vet, here are some tips on who’s hiring and a little advice on snagging a gig. We scoured some well-known job sites and looked at tips and tricks on the web. Then, we compiled them here. We’ve even included an internship opportunity here at APPSPIRE.me!

Marketing Industry Gigs Posted

Some entry and mid-level positions you’ll find on job sites include internships, social media managers, and public relations managers, to name a few. The pay range can be anywhere from college credit to the 60K range. Fortunately, for the time being, a lot of these industry jobs have the option of remote work. In our search, Indeed listed some Austin, Texas companies and organizations hiring for these roles. They include United Way for Greater Austin, Life Line Screening, and Ora Organic.

As far as internships, our team is looking for two interns this fall. The “Digital Design Intern” and “Communications Writer Intern” are posted on Handshake for Texas State University, St. Edward’s University, and the University of Texas. Also, you can find them on Craigslist Austin. Go through Craigslist, if you’re not on Handshake or affiliated with those schools. Currently, two of our staff started as interns and are now an integral part of the team. Both are graduates of Texas State University.

Tips and Tricks for Snagging that Role

As a marketing professional here at APPSPIRE.me, I can say without a doubt, for marketing rookies an internship is a great way to get your foot in the door. You’ll need to get some hands-on experience to showcase in an interview. Or, better yet you’ll get to jump on board officially with the company if you performed well. If you’re on the hunt for that dream job in marketing, we got you. The following guidelines come from first-hand experience and some reputable job sites.

You must:

  • Take an internship opportunity or multiple. Both paid and unpaid can have some invaluable benefits in the long run.
  • Fine-tune that resume and have an online portfolio. When I say, fine-tune, I mean having multiple mentors proof-read your work with a fine-toothed comb.
  • Next, your profiles on job sites should be completely filled out. Don’t make the hiring manager search too deeply to find out more about you. Fill out any and every field and link to your online portfolio and/or resume. Have all information that shows who you are available to them, on the job site and beyond.
  • Apply for roles that you are truly qualified for and where your talent lies. To snag an upper-level position, you really need to have the experience behind it. If you’re wondering why you keep getting turned down, it may because you just don’t have the years of expertise that you need. Aim for the positions that you meet/exceed qualifications for and get your foot in the door.
  • Follow up! I can’t stress this enough. First, your cover letter needs to be personalized and crafted for each individual job. Also, you need to personalize a follow-up note a few days later. Show them that you want the job! Tell the hiring manager why they should give you face time.

Now, with a little extra time and enthusiasm, you should be able to get going in the right direction. Remember to keep at it and don’t get lackadaisical in your search. You have to stand out and that passion and energy must shine through on your resume and profile. And don’t forget, if you’re interested in a great opportunity to learn and gain skills in the marketing industry, APPSPIRE.me is hiring now!
