2017 Advertising Entry-Level Jobs

There’s no better time than right now to take on advertising entry-level jobs. These starting advertising jobs are what can eventually get you into the high-paying advertising manager positions, which are definitely the “sweet spot” of the field right now. In fact, job opportunities for advertising managers are projected to grow by a whopping 13% between now and 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. One of the main reasons for this growth is the fact that the internet has created a new market for advertising. While advertising used to be all print and media based, there is now a growing need for skilled advertisers who can create effective ads for websites, blogs, and other online media. This has changed the landscape for advertising and has created many new positions within the industry.

One entry-level job in advertising that you may wish to consider is an assistant account manager. These professionals serve as liaisons between the company for which they work and a specific client whom the company serves. You’ll need to be a strong communicator, able to understand complex advertising jargon, and capable of explaining that jargon in a way that clients can understand. You also have to be able to work well with others and comfortable reporting to and working directly under a manager.

If you can handle that type of responsibility, these and other jobs in advertising could eventually lead you to a job earning upwards of $108,000 per year. As an added incentive, advertising jobs--though they take a lot of work--also tend to be filled with opportunities for fun and creativity.
