Marketing is an exciting and rewarding career, but you need to possess a combination of several personality traits and characteristics to make it in the marketing world. Although successful marketing professionals come from different backgrounds there are some personality qualities they tend to have in common; which includes creativity & leadership skills, self–motivation, teamwork, analytical skills, project management skills, and communication skills. The truth is that there is no one trait or list of specific traits that a marketing professional needs to have, but a sort of combination of all them.
