Anyone in Marketing, Advertising, Events or PR? Share your experience here!

Hi there!

This is a thread to find out more about the above four jobs. If you're in any of the four positions or has been in one of the four, do share with us your experiences! (It will be useful for graduates who is keen to join the industry or to make comparisons) Hope to keep this thread active for good discussions.

Points that you can share with us if you are comfortable:

(1) Job title and genre of company (eg. luxury, FMCG, govt)
(2) Years of experience
(3) Duties (Lots of OT, working on weekends?)
(4) In your opinion, what kind of personality fits your job?
(5) Does it pay well? (good to give rough figures or a range) Form of allowances or or incentives? Reasonable?
(6) Do you like it? If yes, why so? If not, what keeps you in the job?

I dislike marketing job. No matter online or offline, there are customers objections about it. Currently, I'm in internet marketing industry. Also, difficult. Need to convince potential customers your products or services provided to buy. But marketing jobs is wide, can be face-to-face marketing, affiliate marketing, internet marketing, and those people who hate network marketing (cause it's a scam).
