William - If you have a bachelor's degree, you should be able to apply for a teacher's license and start working as a substitute teacher. This will help you get your foot in the door for a longer-term career in education.
For advertisement, you could start by getting an Associates degree in Marketing though a Bachelor's will be more helpful. Or you can start taking courses in digital marketing on your own. Getting certificates in Google Ad Words, E-mail marketing, and Content Marketing would be a good start. Then search for entry-level positions or even intern opportunities at ad firms and digital marketing agencies.
Best of luck.
