    Question

    Marketing major? Will i have to come up with great witty ideas out of the top of my head?
    Is Marketing all about being asked "how would you advertise this car" and responding immediately with something witty and amazing? I'm not the best when it comes to that and am currently majoring in Marketing at the moment. For those with marketing experience out there or majoring in marketing what does marketing really entail?

    A lot of marketing has to do with statistics and research sampling. Other areas of marketing are oriented towards idea-generation, but it is common for a large company to differentiate between advertising and marketing. Remember that advertising is just one part of marketing. Your job could entail simply gathering and reporting data collected from surveys, or it may be something else. Marketing is a fairly broad field, and creativity would be a useful skill to have, but it actually isn't necessary to pursue a career in marketing.
