How to become a Marketing Officer

If you're interested in pursuing a career as a Marketing Officer, you'll ideally need to have qualifications that major in marketing, advertising or communications at a university level. However, it's possible to still secure a role without having a formal education since the tasks and responsibilities can be learnt on-the-job.

Qualifications such as a BSB40820 - Certificate IV in Marketing and Communication or BSB50620 - Diploma of Marketing and Communication could be great study pathways if you're keen to do a course that's shorter than a bachelor's degree.
