Creative & Marketing Jobs in Demand in 2021

While the promise of effective vaccines brings new hope for future employment, many of the restrictions imposed by the virus are expected to remain. In fact, a recent Gartner poll suggests that 48% of employees will likely work remotely at least part of the time moving forward. As a result, both employers and consumers are using technology more than ever. As people continue to take advantage of these conveniences, technical specialists and creative/marketing experts will be working harder than ever to meet the demand. As things evolve toward a new normal, expect to see these creative, marketing, and tech  jobs in demand in 2021. 

 

Digital Designers

Modern advertising and remote customer experiences depend heavily on polished graphic art to span across a variety of mediums and platforms. The role of Digital Designer is all encompassing, spanning everything from UX/UI design for websites,  to social media and digital banners, and beyond. Skills as a Motion Graphics Designer  are another plus, as this person can create animated sequences for digital advertising and social media.

Product/App Designers

It’s no secret that product/app designers are highly sought after in 2021. A Product Designer is someone who can translate business goals and objectives into beautiful and intuitive online experiences for the consumer, often building products or apps from scratch. As more companies shift to online marketplaces and experiences, product and app design is more important than ever, and hiring the right candidate is critical. Product Managers are also in high demand, as these key individuals will oversee product design, sample production, product testing, and all related aspects of a product life cycle. 

Performance/Growth Marketing Managers

In the creative and tech markets, Marketers are focused on growing their consumer base and tracking the performance of advertising campaigns. Here is where a Growth Marketing Manager or Performance Marketing Manager steps in, respectively. If you’re focused on growth, you’re responsible for creating strategies to acquire new customers and retain existing customers. If you’re a performance based marketer, you are creating paid advertising campaigns that perform, meaning they have measurable results, like clicks or sales. These fields are perfect for the true right brain/left brain thinker –  allowing the creativity of marketing combined with KPIs and quantifiable results.

UX/UI Designer

A positive user experience online is more essential than ever. A UX/UI Designer is responsible for the design and implementation of a successful user interface – think, creating a seamless experience for the consumer who visits your brand’s site or online platform. This often involves conducting user research to better understand how a consumer will interact with your site, and thinking about how best to layout, design, and arrange information. This position is perfect for someone who is both highly creative and has the technological experience to keep up with changing trends in user interface technology. 

Brand Manager/Designer

Establishing a visible brand identity is the only way to make a company stand out in today’s competitive market. A Brand Manager is responsible for creating brand strategies and marketing initiatives to boost visibility, while a Branding Designer will work to design a memorable brand identity and product recognition. Individuals that thrive in these roles are typically creative, big picture  thinkers who possess strong communication skills in order to successfully collaborate with multiple departments.

Marketing Content Creator

A Marketing Content Creator will wear many hats  and should possess a diverse set of creative skills. If a company has a leaner hiring budget, they may opt to hire a broadly skilled content creator over more specialized copywriters, designers, and producers. This person will be responsible for creating high-quality content to successfully reach and engage a company’s target audience. This might include blog writing, social media posts, videos, website content, marketing and sales materials, and more. If you are a skilled writer and enjoy creating new and engaging content, this may be a great role to explore!
