In order to envision yourself as a marketer, you have to consider how many applicable experiences teaching has given you for the marketing world.
You know how to sell. How many students have you convinced to try something that they claimed they “hated?” How many parents have you persuaded that you were really working with them and not against them?
Teachers learn how to communicate and how to clarify miscommunications, but most importantly how to interact with people.
At the heart of marketing is people.
At the heart of teaching is people albeit younger, but still people.
