First thing is first – find the right company for you!
When looking for marketing executive jobs you can become very focused on what is involved in the job but forget to look at the company or agency itself. Finding the right company fit can be just as important to finding day to day tasks that you will enjoy. Whether you are looking for a big company or a smaller marketing agency, be sure to check out the culture, owners and the work they do. This research will not only help in the application process but will give you a clearer idea of what the job entails.
Common tasks that a marketing executive will look after
You will be responsible for the growth, development, and success of the brand you work with. You will support the management of the marketing department, perhaps, creating business plans and presentations, crafting marketing strategies, organizing events and making sure that all aspects of your company’s marketing activities run smoothly. It is a must that you have strong communication skills as the position can require working with 3rd parties, vendors and internal stakeholders to develop effective solutions. Women in Agencies are here to support and empower you if public speaking is still something that you feel stops you from taking on a position such as this.

What should you consider when applying / writing a cover letter
A cover letter is a great way to promote yourself and your skills to a potential employer. Make it short and to the point, and show that you have put work into researching the company before applying. A well-written cover letter can make all the difference between getting hired or getting passed over, so take the time to write a great one!
