some of the more common entry level marketing positions are marketing coordinator and assistant marketing or product manager. these positions usually require bachelor's degrees in marketing or business and job duties can vary. while some go into the field to find their inner don draper, it's important to understand that marketing is more than the mad men story lines of beautiful ads. it relies on hard data which is why a finance or statistics background can help you leap to the top of the field. marketing managers here in the bay area earn a median annual wage of more than $169,000. with that salary, you may be able to emulate don draper's wardrobe. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5.

fremont street off-ramp closure begins tonight at midnight and lasts through 6 a.m. saturday. so at this time tomorrow morning you will have to use the harrison street off-ramp instead. here's a live look out the door at 880 in oakland. everything looks okay. they should be wrapping up that overnight roadwork if it's in the cleared already. it was scheduled to be cleared at 6:00 northbound 880 between 29th and 23rd. and overall we really haven't seen much of a delay from the coliseum all the way to downtown even with caltrans crews pretty hard at work there overnight. here's a live look now at the golden gate bridge. somehow we missed the zipper crews this morning but i'm sure they were out there getting that other southbound lane open to commute traffic and so far it looks good right now out of sausalito. ac transit is rerouting around the macarthur bart station. if you are an ac transit rider be there planned protests around 7:30 at macarthur bart. right now, all lines are on time except for the daly city line five- to ten-minute delays and this is a separate issue. these are equipment problems.
it's a friday. we like to ask what drives you crazy on your commute. brenda is bugged by those last- minute mergers. those drivers who insist on merging at the very last part of the lane passing every car until they are practically driving on the shoulder. i drive from san jose to palo alto on the guadalupe parkway to 101. and i often see one last car trying to squeeze past me like it even makes a difference. all right. well, how you merge can actually say a little something about your personality. some feel that deep urge to get in the right lane as quickly as possible. and then there's others that just kind of hang out until the very last second. traffic studies have shown that if everything is flowing freely drivers should merge early to avoid those unsafe scenarios like the one you describe. but when traffic is congested, it's often a good idea to make full use of both lanes and merge late. well, we want we want to know what drives you crazy during your commute. ask a question or share a gripe by emailing email@example.com. or tweet me at #ewengerkpix and watch to see if your question gets answered on air.
