Should I take a marketing role or a sales role?

I finished my last college exam 2 days back and now am looking for a job.


I like both verticals and am wondering where to start...

Are you motivated by money? That should answer your question.ย

Very fair. In all honesty, marketing is cool af especially digital marketing. In sales, you will learn skills and be forced out of your comfort zone all the time when you cold call which is such a valuable skill in life. That's why I would pick sales but obviously biased as I've not held a marketing role... professionally anyways
