Marketing Jobs That Require Travel

Save

If you enjoy travel, you can likely find a marketing job that offers some. A marketing job for a global company, for example, will almost guarantee you some travel, but even a local company might need you to travel to another city or state for a trade show, business development or to service client accounts. The American Marketing Association offers advice and job postings you can view using your job criteria.

Director, Sales and Marketing

  • It is not uncommon for companies to group sales and marketing together, or to use the terms interchangeably. According to Tom Tower, president of T2 Marketing of Austin, Texas, these sales and marketing positions often require travel to service existing customer accounts and develop new relationships. The extent of the travel depends on your sales territory responsibility, which usually grows with your tenure at the company. The base of a company's manufacturing operations can also have an effect on the amount of travel required.

International Development and Social Marketing

  • Social marketing programs exist locally as well as globally. To be an international social marketer, search for jobs in international development, either with a private contractor or as a consultant or employee of a government agency. The U.S. Agency for International Development funds programs throughout the world, and awards contracts to private contractors. Travel associated with this work is usually extensive.

Regional or Global Marketing Manager

  • Marketing managers commonly travel, depending on what their employer does, what it sells and the location of its customers. For example, in the semiconductor industry, there are many trade shows throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia that offer opportunities for business development as well as product showcasing. Marketing managers frequently have a significant role in organizing company involvement in trade shows and can often expect to attend and participate in these events.

Director or Vice President of an international region

  • Frequently, you will see job titles that specify a global region of responsibility, such as "Vice President of Marketing -- Asia." These positions may be based anywhere but require travel to several countries for customer meetings, trade shows and events, product quality control and other issues. Particularly if you oversee a sales staff, you may spend time traveling to meet and select these employees as well as introduce them to your customers in the region.
