It is no surprise that a marketing career is one of the most popular and highest paying careers in the world right now. But of course, in marketing, as in any other career, some industries pay better than others.
Let’s take a look at the highest paying industries a contemporary marketer can work in.
Marketers working in the healthcare sector earn high salaries and are eligible for excellent benefit packages too. This means that marketers operating in this industry are less likely to look for new opportunities and roles. Which translates to job opportunities in the healthcare industry being fewer and far between. The industry is also highly-regulated which makes opportunities in this industry require extensive skills on top of previous industry experience. All these factors equate to the fact that the healthcare industry is not the easiest industry to move into, at least for a marketer.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The ICT industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world and as such, it becomes a lucrative industry to anyone affiliated with it. Especially with the digital disruption taking place all over the world, digital marketing has become one of the cornerstones in any business’s marketing strategy. This along with the incredibly innovative solutions coming out every day, excellent salaries, and being one of the happiest industries to work in, the technology industry is a very good one to get into even if you’re just starting out.
The retail industry is also a thriving industry and has been for quite some time. Marketers working in this industry also earn sizable salaries. However, getting into the retail sector is also extremely hard without prior experience like the healthcare industry, maybe even more so. This also means that the competition for roles in this industry too is very high.
In addition to these industries, manufacturing, automotive and leisure industries are also considerably high paying industries a marketer can work in.
