Hi Yasmine!

Lots of marketing companies are worldwide, like WPP, and most American companies also have a branch in UK. I recommend looking up the top 5 marketing corporations in the world and checking the agencies that exist under them. (WPP is one of them)

Secondly, now that the pandemic has occurred.. a lot (not all) marketing agencies are changing the way they think about employees and where they should be located. Working remotely for a company has big perks (like you can live wherever you want, you self-manage your work, etc.) and it wouldn't be a bad idea to explore international agencies that have remote positions!

Since you are a student, I do recommend trying to get an internship at these bigger agencies in person because a lot of what makes an intern attractive is personality and how they mesh with the company. Anyone can be taught something, but agency/marketing is a lot about what your personality or connections can bring to the table above your work.

I hope that's helpful and good luck!

Thank you Alejandra! I always find your answers very helpful! Thank you Yasmine M.

Distribution companies (those who get the products to the stores...think Sysco or Southern Glazers Wine & Spirts) have many marketing roles within their industries. This would include graphic design, webpage design, social media management, promoting brands, etc.

Chris recommends the following next steps:

Have a background/education in design
Research local companies that distribute brands (who delivers product to Kroger Grocery or Walmart)
Research the brands they distribute (Ex: what do you know about Patron Tequila)
Apply to companies that align with your experience/education
