Having a marketing degree is not the end of the road. It requires continuous learning because marketing keeps on evolving. As I was responding to a question on a LinkedIn post, I shared the following list of skills and traits that I think will be crucial for aspiring marketing professionals.

  • Take Math, writing, and public speaking very, very, very seriously.
  • Learn, at least, language other than your native one.
  • Learn, at least, the basics of coding and web design.
  • Learn as much as possible about world geography; perhaps a specific continent or region.
  • Nurture collaboration skills.
  • Develop multicultural competencies.
  • Be creative. Be artistic.
  • Value quality.
  • Be caring.
  • Be honest. Be ethical.

If you would like to add more to the list, by any means, please do so. 👇🏽
