After surviving hours of instruction, course work and examinations, you've finally earned your college diploma. You're anxious to launch your marketing career. You have the skills and knowledge to land a great job and finally establish yourself as a bona fide professional. But before setting sights on a corner office or six-figure salary, be prepared to do a little "grunt work" first.
While passion and industry expertise will help you impress hiring managers, it takes time and a steady record of achievement to reach your potential. Your first post-grad position may involve a few mind-numbing tasks, but try not to let the boredom get the best of you.
