While a fair amount of surfing and research can be done on the internet, these jobs are not exactly what some would call conventional and, unfortunately, what this means is that you may not get these jobs through entirely conventional means. You will need knowledge of the lay of the land, connections, flexibility and, most of all, a good portfolio. As far as the first three requirements go, that depends largely on your attitude. You need to be willing to take rejection and criticism all while carrying yourself to the next opportunity and you will need connections, in some cases, to help get your foot in the door. Flexibility is pretty self-explanatory since the unconventional nature of a few of these jobs may require you to travel. The portfolio is what we are here to talk about. You will need a strong representation of your work and a wide range of pieces to demonstrate your various talents. You should also tailor your portfolio for whomever you are doing marketing for. For example, if you are thinking of doing marketing for electricitycompaniestexas.com or any other electricity provider, then you should have pieces relevant to that establishment. And just remember, your portfolio represents your skill – that’s what they will be looking at more than anything else so make sure you arrange and organize yours properly.
