Employers look for marketers who have strong interpersonal skills and are highly organised. The topics, subjects, or knowledge areas workers rate as most important are English language including the meaning and spelling of words, rules of composition, and grammar; media production, communication, and dissemination, including written, spoken, and visual media.

Planning and coordination of people and resources is also essential; and showing, promoting, and selling products or services, including marketing strategy and tactics, product demonstration, sales techniques, and sales control systems. All these tasks are also essential to most job roles in marketing.
