How to become a Media Planner

Media planners are part of the wider advertising and public relations fraternity that are concerned with the preparation and design campaigns on behalf of their clients. More specifically, media planners are responsible for acquiring media time and space for the purposes of advertising their clients' brand and products on a range of media that includes the Internet, publications, TV, and radio. Media planners buy these advertising spaces and time and then sell these directly to individual companies or advertising agencies.

Media planners' entry-level and managerial positions in the advertising services sector are available to those who have bachelor's degree qualifications with a bias toward exposure to the liberal arts. Media planners usually begin their careers in the account management section or in the creative department.
