Hello There!


Thanks for the complete background and I am happy to see you approach CareerGuide for seeking guidance to your very natural query. I am sure that the experts here will be able to guide you.


Just a little about myself... I am an Educationist and an Economist. I have been into career counselling for more than seven years now for students generally from commerce / management / law / engineering streams. I am also a writer and my articles and research papers on various topics including career management have been published in reputed newspapers and magazines across India.

From your query I understand that you wish to change your field of job from accounting to marketing. From your query it is not clear whether you are an MBA Finance or Marketing or have dual specialisation in Finance and Marketing or whether you are just a graduate in commerce. However looking at your job profile I assume that you are MBA Finance or may be M.Com.

As per my experience, shifting from finance / accounting to marketing is very easy and simpler and companies do consider this however it difficult to change vice versa.

If you have the flair for marketing and like to travel, then may be your passion is towards Marketing field. I would also like to tell you that if one follows his / her passion and wants to do what he / she loves, he / she can surely become successful in that particular field. Therefore I think you can succeed in marketing.

Since you will shifting from finance / accounting to marketing, in the marketing field you will be treated as a fresher since you do not have the prior relevant work experience. Therefore you should not try negotiating your salary considering this aspect.

As you go a little months further in marketing, wherein you actually meet your sales target every quarter, you will gain confidence. Being into sales first is vey important to become a good Marketing manager. Your current job profile which involves speaking to customers in the brach office, is a good experience which can be used in core marketing. While applying for jobs, you need to definitely highlight this aspect about customer interaction in the resume so that the prospective employer gives weightage to this factor while recruiting you.

Best Luck.
