I've been really interested in the areas of growth marketing and customer acquisition for some time now. I've done a lot of reading on the topics and recently graduated from university with a degree in marketing and communications. As a new grad, I'm having a lot of trouble finding an entry level role in "growth marketing" where the focus is on learning. Most of the opportunities that I'm coming across require a minimum of 5+ years experience in a similar role.
For you growth marketers out there, where did you get your start? What kind of companies or roles did you target early in your careers? What were some of the things you did to help draw attention to yourself and your passion for marketing?
