Career Pathways

Entry-level positions include market research assistant, marketing coordinator, and marketing or public relations officer in any industry or organisational setting. You can then progress to team leader and management roles, including becoming a conference producer or events manager. In corporations and large agencies, directorship is the highest office for this department, although many practitioners choose to start their own business after gaining enough experience.

Marketing and PR graduates can expect to acquire the knowledge and skills to identify, research, reach and assess their target market, build client relationships and align organisational goals with marketing activities. Upon completion of an events course, students will be able to plan and organise events for a variety of purposes including business, networking, exhibitions, festivals, weddings and other celebrations.

The industry is in a strong growth period with roles across PR, advertising and marketing, and conference and event organisation in greater demand than ever before. Organisations now see the value of these activities to boost business opportunities and foster goodwill, making this a rewarding area to work in.

There is a range of associations for practitioners, including professional institutions such as the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) and Australian Marketing Institute (AMI), for career development and information on best practice. Other collectives include the Association for Data-driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA), the Marketing Association of Australia and New Zealand (MAANZ), Asia-Pacific Professional Services Marketing Association (APSMA), Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) and Meetings & Events Australia (MEA).
