The goal of advertising something is to build awareness of it and to make people want to buy the product. You are selling the idea of having that product to the consumer. This is a part of marketing and so advertisers will be a part of the marketing department or will work for an advertising agency that offers their services to companies. We should also note that an advertiser can advertise more than just a good or service. They can advertise a political party or candidate, a faith-based organization, or even arms of a huge organization like the UN or a government agency. 

The advertising space is incredibly competitive, so you need to be especially creative and convincing to get a foot in the door or promotion in this field. While an educational background in marketing or a similar field would be a huge advantage, it is not an absolute requirement and can be substituted with a breadth of experience. Here are some advertiser resumes and some tips to create your own and nab the job.
