Agencies are looking for people who are great at communicating, who are confident with data and numbers, while also thinking about how it appeals to people.
This can be from a tertiary pathway – an economics, psychology, business, maths, or science degree would be helpful, but what you study does not matter, it can be anything you are passionate about.
There are a number of different ways to get a job as a Media Executive. There are graduate programmes (see The Comms Council Graduate Programme for more details).
When applying for any of these roles directly, make sure to emphasise your communication, organisation and love of relationship building in your Cover Letter and CV.
