Dear Career Doctor,
I'm currently working as a marketing executive for shopping malls in hk and have been in the communications and marketing field for years since my graduation.
I hold a degree in business management (overseas university) with a master degree in Journalism (local university) followed right after the 1st degree.
I'm approaching 30 this yr and am planning for a change in my career as a researcher, preferably market research (if possible) so as to minimize the risk and utilize my skills and knowledge gained in marketing before. My desire to opt for a change is that I'm tired of the unprofessionalism in frontline marketing (especially when it comes to the time in choosing creative or handling daily logistics, there're often no right or wrong, no ground or supporting facts, but solely subject to management's preference) and my personality doesnt really fit the field.
But I won't narrow myself to the market research field, I will try the research posts which are available in the market and of my interests, but will avoid Finance area which I'm not strong at.
To start off, I plan to take a diploma/certificate
