Resparking Creativity:

A Marketing Professional's Career Guide Towards Becoming a Director

by Fatemah Mirza & Sumayyah Rafiq

Genre: Nonfiction, Career Self-Help

Are you a marketing professional feeling trapped in your current job? Do you want to climb the corporate ladder and become a successful marketing director? Or are you so overwhelmed by daily operations that your creative energies have run dry?

I wrote this book for marketing managers who feel these pains. So, if you're struggling to unleash your creative energy and experience career growth, this book is tailor-made for you.

As a marketing professional, you may be deeply creative and ambitious enough to aim for a director role, but these obstacles are holding you back. You're caught in a monotonous routine, unable to pursue projects that will reignite your creative spark and simultaneously showcase your potential as a marketing director.

In this book, I offer concrete and actionable strategies to help you break free from this rut and:

*Create a portfolio of projects that will prove your candidacy as a marketing director

*Develop a stronger understanding of your strengths and capabilities at the director level.

*Create a resume, LinkedIn, and cover letter that grabs the recruiter's attention.

*Strategically network with the right people and stop chasing recruiters.

*Excel at interviews through strategic and proactive preparation.

*Advocate for yourself during salary negotiations and negotiate highly competitive compensation packages.

These strategies have been refined over my 13+ years as a marketing professional, empowering marketing leaders in the industry to approach their promotion plans with renewed vigor.


If you're a creative marketing manager with a track record of success, this book will equip you with methodologies that will facilitate long-term success and propel you to the pinnacle of your marketing career.

This book is designed for marketing professionals who:

*Who are deeply creative

*Have great ideas and are eager to put them into motion

*Are committed to changing their job search strategies

*Who want to make the world a better place through their work

My great-uncle was one of the strongest people I knew. During the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947–1948, when the subcontinent was getting divided up into India and Pakistan, when families were getting split up forever, and when people were sacrificing their wealth and their lives for religion, homes, and political stances, my great-uncle smuggled himself into Pakistan.


He found a train that was taking only government officials into Lahore, and he hid in it. When the train was being searched, he climbed out a window and crouched on the top of the speeding train, hanging on for his life. When the police climbed on top of the train to grab him, he scrambled to the bottom of a carriage and hung on with his bare feet and hands until he could climb back up, undetected.


Imagine the physical strength it takes to hang off the bottom of a train that's going 50, maybe 60 miles per hour, your body just a few inches away from the beaten train tracks. Imagine the mental strength it takes to say goodbye to your family to put yourself in that kind of situation.


He was such a beautiful, kind old man – the kind that would give you the shirt off his back if you complimented it. And I don't know all this because he told me; my dad did.


You see, he never wanted to boast.


Despite having such an amazing and accomplished life, if I asked him to tell me a story about his youth, he fumbled.


Honestly? I get it.


A lot of my clients procrastinate when they have to write about themselves. Some of them do so because they don't want to take the time to really look within and think about what they have to offer.


"What do I bring to the table?"


That question is really stressful.


So instead of doing the productive thing, i.e., putting pen to paper, we tend to "productively procrastinate" by obsessing over the format of what we're writing. Which color would look good? Is the text too small? But if I put my name too big, does it scream "ego"?


Self-promotion is a necessary evil in the modern world. Without promoting yourself, you don't get paid.


Today, I encourage you to "unselfishly" prioritize yourself.


Prioritizing yourself is "unselfish" because if you're happy and fulfilled at your job, you do better work and you take home more for yourself and your loved ones. I don't want something small like formatting to trip you up and stop you from sharing your story. I’ve seen too many people stop short of doing something incredible because of something small.


At the start of the previous chapter, I talked about the difference in responsibilities between managers and directors.  If you haven’t read that, go through Section II. Becoming a Director. That’s going to be the boundary within which you’ll be rebranding yourself.


In this chapter, you’re going to learn:

1. How to identify what companies are looking for and use that to… 

2. …make attention-grabbing bullets that speak to employers while…

3. … learning how to create the best impression possible.


The strategies and templates I will share with you have been developed after surveying 3,000+ recruiters. Our best practices work best on average; they are a well-liked style and the general preference for hiring managers. My team and I continue to get recruiter feedback to ensure that our clients meet hiring managers’ and recruiters' developing needs.


Before you begin rebranding, let’s clarify the basis upon which your rebranding work will build. Let’s start with resumes.

  3. Is this a self help book? I am not familiar with this kind of reading at all.

    1. I would say yes because a self-help book is "written with the intention to instruct its readers on solving personal problems" (from Wikipedia). Our goal with this book is to help readers, specifically people working in marketing or aiming to work in marketing, to improve their chances of becoming a director. It's a little different but ultimately we want to give job seekers the right tools to move up the career ladder!
