Default Talent Management vs Marketing, which has a better career prospect?

Hi folks, would like to hear some advise on the future prospects of talent management/L&D role vs pure marketing role (in education industry).

I'm in my mid-career, with 10 years experience in education industry doing programme management, then business development and recruitment. I was given an opportunity to move out of education industry and enter a talent management/L&D role, which I'm very interested in. However, my boss counter-offered me a marketing position (work with agencies, branding and events) that I have been interested in also.

I'm keen in both roles and would like to go for the one that has a better career prospect. Any advise would be much appreciated. TIA!

Wow, thanks for sharing this information. I have been studying all possible types of marketing for about 2 weeks, starting with digital marketing and ending with influencer marketing. I'm sure you've never heard of influencer marketing, have you? I just found out about it a few weeks ago. It turns out that influencer marketing can quickly turn your business into a brand that will be popular. Now, many people constantly use social media, so you can use influencer marketing as one of the types of advertising - this is when a popular person on Instagram can advertise and promote your business or product.

I totally get your dilemma between talent management/L&D and marketing. As someone who's not particularly fond of marketing myself, I understand where you're coming from. However, in today's digital age, having some knowledge of marketing fundamentals, especially digital marketing, can be a game-changer for any career.
I recently stumbled upon an awesome website at*https://www.searchseo.io/ctr-manipulation*while browsing online. They've got some great resources on digital marketing, including a cool section on CTR manipulation. It's worth checking out to get some insights and enhance your understanding of the digital marketing landscape.
Now, back to your question about career prospects. Both talent management/L&D and marketing offer exciting opportunities, but it ultimately depends on your passion and long-term goals. Consider where your strengths lie and which role aligns better with your interests and values.

Given your extensive background in the education industry, you already have valuable insights. A talent management/L&D role could leverage that experience, while the marketing position offers a fresh perspective. Consider what truly ignites your passion, aligns with your long-term goals, and where you see yourself making a bigger impact. Think about growth opportunities, work-life balance, and personal fulfillment.
