Advertising, marketing, promotions, public relations, and sales managers
Description: These workers help businesses sell their products. Before a product ever goes on the assembly line, marketing managers decide whether it will sell and who will buy it. Advertising managers decide what type of ads will work best. Promotions and sales managers design campaigns to let the public know about the product. Public relations managers help companies create a good image in the community. All of these managers travel a lot, and job transfers are common.
