What is the job setting for working in marketing/business?
I was wondering if working in marketing or business requires you to be in an office or cubicle setting the entire day because I am not sure what the exact setting would be. #business #marketing
This depends on your role and what type of company you work for, but generally, you will be in an office setting. Although, part of marketing is also planning events so you would be required to attend those events and coordinate the day of. I have had a marketing role that required me to travel every month for events that were planned or for important meetings because I worked remotely in Sothern California, and the project I focused on was in San Francisco. So, there is definitely an opportunity for travel and being outside it just depends on the company and your specific marketing role.
Hope this helps!

Take time and ask the HR representative who you are applying with about the workplace environment. Get to know if this job offers flex time in the office and working from home. Working from home sounds appealing, but it could limit your chances for promotion as you are not in the building networking as much. It’s unfortunate, but out of sight is sometimes out of mind.
There may be travel involved with marketing positions. You will want to know what is expected of you for time you will be traveling out of the office. Are you traveling 50% of the time or more out of the office attending to clients or customers? You will want to know the location of clients. Are you expected to travel to different states or countries for this position? If travel is required, ask about a corporate credit card to pay for your travels so you don’t have any out-of-pocket costs or reimbursement issues.
If you do get a position that is focused out of the home and you don’t have to go in, ask about if they have a stipend for funds to help you create your home office. A good desk, chair, printers and any other workplace items you will need. Ask about internet reimbursements. Do they pay for your internet since it is primary to you working from home?
As you are looking for the right working environment for you, ask a lot of questions, so you feel comfortable that you are working in the type of position that makes you happy and that you can thrive in.
Good luck on your search Maddy.
