3 Reasons Why Marketing Employees Get Fired From Their Job


For a few years, I must admit that I was highly confused as to why my firm had 300 job seekers looking for marketing jobs per day and only one employer looking to hire one. In sales and media, the ratio is 500% more than any form of marketing whether it be social media,digital media or other.
