No matter what you have learned in your college, the industry experience is all different from the course. Initially I was not able to understand the marketing terms at all. Quite frankly, sometimes I felt like I was learning a new language, which didn't make getting acclimated to the industry any easier. Over time, and after many Google searches, I was able to talk in marketing terms.
So I have jot down some Marketing terms and their meanings-
1. Case Study : An in-depth analysis of work a company completed for a client or customer that highlights the goals, process, and services used, as well as the results achieved through the services.
2. Email Marketing : The process of sending a strategic message directly to a contact or group of contacts via email for the purposes of educating, engaging, and/or encouraging them to take a specific, profitable action.

4. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) :A set of quantifiable metrics a company uses to evaluate its performance against its specific, strategic goals.
5. Outbound Marketing :A form of marketing focused on pushing a message out to an intended audience by, for example, attending conferences and trade shows, cold calling, and paying for TV ads
6. Public Relations (PR) : A strategy complementary to marketing that's responsible for positioning a company in a positive light through messages from the company
