They often arrange staff meetings, prepare memos and reports, and maintain databases. Marketing assistants may also answer phone calls, distribute mail, and schedule appointments.
In this position, you can expect to perform daily office duties, such as communicating with visitors, filing, answering phones, setting meetings, opening mail, and sending faxes. Computer skills, social media expertise, and writing talent could boost your chances for more responsibilities, career advancement, and higher pay.
It will help if you have at least a high school diploma to become a marketing assistant, but you will probably want to obtain a college education, too. Most marketing assistants have a college degree. Although some have an associate's degree, the vast majority of marketing assistants with a college education possess a bachelor's degree.
