Rounding up our top five episodes on career advice for marketers was hard. But that’s a good problem to have. We have been incredibly fortunate to have so many guests share their career advice on Real Marketers and Mobile Matters. Here are some of our favorite podcast episodes on advice every marketer needs to hear about their career.
Ryan Bonnici | Mobile Matters, 49
Whether you’re just entering the world of marketing or you’re a seasoned professional, you need to know everything you can about the business you’re interviewing at. In episode 49 of Mobile Matters, Ryan Bonnici reveals his top three pieces of advice for younger marketers. But it’s not just for young professionals – anyone should listen to Ryan’s advice no matter what career stage you’re in.
Leslie Bloom | Real Marketers, 15
Hi, my name is Michelle and I’m a perfectionist. But it’s okay. Most marketers are perfectionists. This is a good and bad thing. It’s great to be meticulous about the smaller details (especially as a content and brand marketer). Sure a typo here and there won’t kill you but we can always strive for perfection! At least I keep telling myself that. But hearing we don’t always need to be perfectionists at our jobs is a refreshing perspective, which is why Leslie Bloom’s episode on Real Marketers made it on our top five list.
Listener’s Episode | Real Marketers, 14
This next one is three for the price of one. During our special Listener’s Episode on Real Marketers, we were lucky enough to hear excellent career advice from three top-notch marketers. While you should listen to all three discuss their biggest failures in marketing, Lauren Ritter (McConnell) emphasizes just how important taking risks is in one’s career.
Sangram Vajre | Mobile Matters, 40
You know it’s a good discussion when you have to break the content into two different episodes. That’s exactly what happened with Sangram Vajre during his episode on Mobile Matters. While this was recorded in 2019, the advice Sangram shared may be even more timely in today’s world. We know having a work-life balance is critical to a happy life, but that is much easier said than done. Listen to what Sangram had to say about prioritizing being a parent, sibling, or even a spouse.
Michelle Miller | Real Marketers, 07
Generations of women have been raised to be “good girls” where they’re taught to be polite, not speak too loud, don’t argue with others, and the list goes on and on. While these behaviors are taught to women at a young age, they tend to impact their entire life both personally and professionally. No matter if you identify as a woman, Michelle Miller’s advice on standing up for yourself resonated with many of our listeners.
