That's why we're telling you about five great benefits to get CIM qualified.

1. Helps you expand your knowledge

The first thing a CIM Marketing qualication can do is help you build on your marketing experience. If you're just starting out in your marketing career it's a great way to learn more about it, as well as understand what makes a good marketer. Even if you've been in your career for a long time, it can help you update your skills by learning new techniques as marketing is an ever-changing industry. 

2. Flexible study around you

Think you're too busy to start a qualification? Well, luckily a CIM qualification is something you can start at any time of the year. As well as being able to begin at any time, the studying is also completely flexible, making it easy to fit it in around everyday work and life commitments.

3. Useful skills you can use straight away

As soon as you start your studying, you'll acquire useful and valuable new skills that can be put into practise right away in your marketing job, whilst continuing to develop skills that you already have!

4. Allows your CV to stand out

Studying a CIM qualification will not only give you knowledge and skills that you can use straight away in your marketing career as stated above, it has the added benefit of enabling your CVto stand out from the others if you chose to go for a job promotion or choose to apply for another job in marketing.

5. Gives your career a boost

Whether you've been in your marketing career for two years or twenty, gaining a CIM marketing qualification could be the thing you need in order to progress further with your career.
