Marketing project ? [#permalink] New post 11 May 2010, 19:32
Hello everyone..

I am a IT professional and have a deep sense of passion for marketing. I wish to pursue an MBA eventually but would like to get started with some kind of project to assess and get myself to the reality of marketing.
I need help getting started. Do any of you have an idea where I can begin ?
I need advice/suggestions on the following:

1) some kind of a research project where I can utilize my analytical skills, gather information perform analysis and present reports.
2) is there any place that I can offer my services as a free/volunteer kind of role?
3) where would be a good start to do free lancing?
4) there are possibly many start ups which are looking for non expensive but smart marketing catalysts who can get the job done, any idea where i can find such leads?

thanks,

cc! :)
