Working on my portfolio and even though I've been in marketing for 15 years, I realized I've never worked designing. Is this important when finding a new job?

Yes, it would be best if you have some experience in that area. It never hurts to have other knowledge when you want to get another job.

More than experience, some knowledge. Many companies look for candidates with some design background, which can help them create more effective marketing materials and work better alongside designers. Consider taking some courses or finding a mentor who can help you develop your skills.

You probably have enough experience that you can get away with not being super familiar with all the specifics of design. What kind of jobs are you applying for?

I'd say it depends on the types of roles you're interested in at the moment. Can you share any more about that?

This person doesn’t necessarily need to have both skills but if they did great, but if only one, great too.
