The number of jobs that are held by those with degrees in marketing is growing.
But the degree itself is often seen as an outdated way to land a job.
And the new data from McKinsey & Co. suggests that many of these careers are not sustainable for some.
The company’s latest survey of 1,100 U.S. professionals found that just 2 percent of those who received a degree in marketing had a job lined up.
That compares to 20 percent of graduates who received college degrees.
That’s a decline from the 20 percent in the previous McKinsey survey in 2012.
The reason for the drop in degrees, according to McKinsey, is that students are having difficulty finding the right job.
“It’s a little bit of a paradox,” says Lee Zivack, an associate professor of marketing at Ohio State University.
“If you have a degree, you should expect to get better employment.
If you don’t, you might be a victim of job scarcity.”
In the U.K., there’s evidence that the number of degrees being awarded is declining.
In 2016, a survey of more than 100,000 university students found that students with a BA or more in marketing were the most likely to be offered a job with a company.
The U.B.C. has been seeing an increase in degrees in this field over the past year, which may be attributed in part to a new generation of graduates entering the workforce.
But even with this surge in degrees and jobs, there are some jobs that do not require a degree.
In fact, McKinsey found that less than half of the positions that the company considered to be job-seeker-specific were held by people who had degrees.
The majority of these positions, which include sales, finance, marketing, and digital marketing, were held only by people with a bachelor’s degree or less.
There are also many jobs that require a master’s degree, but these jobs typically require at least a bachelor degree.
“Some people may be able to find work without a degree but they’re not likely to do so,” says Zivak.
“They’re not necessarily getting paid a lot.
It’s not like they’re making much money for it.”
The McKinsey study also found that the degree and job seeker were not interchangeable.
In other words, people with degrees were more likely to hold the job of sales rep and marketing executive than they were to be a salesperson.
In this case, it may be that having a degree will not necessarily translate into a job for someone who has not previously worked in marketing.
“What is the value of the degree?”
“A degree is a nice thing, but if you’re making $100,000 a year and you don to have a good job, you’re probably going to end up doing that.”
And as we see more people with bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees entering the labor market, it’s becoming harder to justify the cost.
Zivacks believes that the solution is for employers to look at the job seekers’ experience, as well as the experience of other graduates, and to see if they can offer them better compensation.
