    You need to seriously pass some prerequisites, even if I told you the various things I do everyday as Director of Marketing you wouldn't yet know how to do them. You have to read and learn in an autodidact fashion.

    Hi spurs, what country do you live in? Are there any local colleges near you, where you could take a part time course in marketing? Are there any particular industries that you would like to work in?

    If you can please give us a little more info on your background we can offer you more specific advice and suggestions.

    You need at least college to start working in marketing as a good background will be necessary.

    spurs, so should I take it that you are considering studying marketing in university and you want to learn more about what a career in marketing involves, before making a final decision?

    It is better to take full knowledge before moving forward in it because in this one mistake can cost you a lot.
