29 Apr The New Marketing Landscape Is Here to Stay
Everyone knows that marketing has evolved significantly in the last 5-10 years, but it seems like some marketing organizations haven’t “evolved” as much as they have “revolved.” Traditional marketing organizations are at a loss for talent as restructuring, cost cutting, and turnover have become more prevalent than ever before. Newly minted graduates and millennials are more interested in being part of the “bigger picture” and they are inspired by the startup world. Interestingly enough, despite the significant growth of small businesses and startups, these organizations are not only financially challenged to hire seasoned marketing executives, but often times aren’t really sure what they are looking for.
It’s not uncommon for brand marketing, e-commerce, customer acquisition, CRM, social media, and an exhausting list of skills to be expected of job candidates today. Marketing roles are becoming more complicated, paving the way to a sea of grey area. With the turnover and instability in marketing leadership, younger marketing professionals often lack the leadership and mentorship that would help them grow and develop their career. It comes as no surprise that the life span of a Chief Marketing Officer is less than 2 years…so, should you feel accomplished when you hit that 24- month mark?
