CHICAGO — September 13, 2010 — As an assistant brand manager moving her way up the corporate ladder at a prominent Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) company, Angela Manor decided to temporarily put her career on hold to be a stay-at-home mom. After a year, Manor decided she wanted to dip her feet back into the business world, and looked at a couple of different avenues.
She ultimately decided the best fit was working with a marketing staffing company and is now working with Marketing Resources Solutions (www.mrsstaff.com). Through Marketing Resources, Manor was able to increase her skill sets and secure her current interim position as assistant marketing manager for a leading CPG company.
“Although my ultimate goal is to find a permanent position within a leading CPG company with growth opportunities, it’s not an easy thing to do in the current job market,” said Manor. “Marketing Resources found the right fit, and through them I have been able to work with a leading CPG company and gain additional experience that will help put me in a good position for a more permanent role within the company once the hiring freeze is over.”
Today’s marketing organizations’ biggest challenge is struggling to increase revenues and market share as well as building customer loyalty with fewer marketing resources. Increasing full-time headcount is not a strategic option in today’s economic climate. Instead of abandoning marketing activities, companies are looking to adapt the way they support their marketing efforts and are turning to companies like Marketing Resources for flexible and effective solutions.
“Marketing Resources is a critical extension of many Fortune 500 marketing departments who have been hit hard with massive layoffs and hiring freezes,” said Marcia Pellicone, president of Marketing Resources Solutions. “We provide corporate marketing departments with the ability to focus on their core business while helping to enhance productivity and accountability through a flexible solution for expanding onsite manpower without increasing headcount.”
