4. Marketing & Media-related Sector
The media and all the roles under the umbrella of marketing remain an essential function in any organisation. While the purpose of marketing has remained fundamentally the same, being the eyes and ears of brands in their industries, the jobs of marketers have become much more complex than before. This is especially so with the introduction of technology-driven tools and the need for the right skill sets to effectively integrate them into marketing and media campaigns that drive a business impact.
