  • Copywriter or illustrator: In this department, the work of the writing of the copy is put together. Storyboards and design aspects are also handled.
  • Advertising Agency: One place to begin a career in public advertising is through an agency. Agencies utilize marketing, customer service and public relation skills to bring in customers for their clients. They create advertisements for products or service the public needs and want. Careers are lucrative for those who can come up with creative ideas, promotions or concepts.
  • Advertising Executives and Managers: This career ranks high in public advertising. Executives direct the advertisements, oversee projects and manage the team. They also make sure budgets are met without sacrificing the goals. Without this very important person pushing the team, product ideas are not made.
  • Marketing Manager: Marketing managers make sure that all projects are promoted, priced and marketed successfully. This person examines a project and looks for the best way to promote it. He or she works with both the promotion and advertisement managers for ways to get the product or service to potential customers. They essentially look for the bottom line and strive to achieve it.
  • Sales: This career begins with ad sales people and ends with the sales manager. After the executives and management teams market a product, it is up to the sales team to sell it. These are the people in retail stores or online. They work to make a profit by selling products and services. Although the upper management teams are essential, sales is the driving force behind advertisement. This career can be very exciting if you love talking with others and making the sell.
  • Customer Service Sales Team: At times, products are sold online or by phone. Customer service representatives are the people who handle this area of advertisement. They strive to meet company goals while also maintaining great communication with the customers. They learn to upsell products or ideas, just like the sales team does in a store environment.
