Coffee & Careers: Marketing Careers in Manufacturing

The manufacturing industry is growing rapidly, and there is a high demand for skilled marketers. It’s important to prepare for this job market’s unique challenges and opportunities to be more successful. Here, adaptability and versatility are prized in a world deeply rooted in tradition.

Unlike the tech or SaaS sectors, where specialized roles abound, many manufacturing companies are small to mid-size. They often rely on small, nimble marketing teams, so there are more jobs available to generalists who can wear many hats than to specialists. One person may be responsible for everything from demand generation to trade shows to product marketing to sales support.

As daunting as this can be, the rewards are exceptional for marketers in the manufacturing industry. They have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge products and technologies, and to make a real difference in the success of their companies. They work with a wide range of people, from engineers and scientists to CEOs and other marketers.
