CS6: How do I snap the playhead to markers?

Simple one probably but how do I snap the playhead to markers? I've also used Sony Vegas and if I click the marker the playhead moves to that point. Where is AE's equivalent?

Thanks

Hold down the shift key while moving the CTI(current time indicator)

AE also gives you the ability to add markers to the comp itself and not just the layer. Park the timeline cursor where you want it... hit shift-zero through shift-nine on the main keyboard (not numeric keypad), and set a marker independent of the layer. To go to the marker position, hit 0-9 on the main keyboard Very handy for making fast moves to a designated spot in the comp.

The downside: you only get ten of them, 0-9. But you can reassign them to a different spot in the comp if you want with the shift-0-9 trick. Just drag them off the comp entirely when you're done with them.

Another easy and quick way to get rid off the Markers is Hold CMND/CNTRL and then Click on the Markers.

Use
"J" and "K", the CTI will jump to the NEXT THING in it´s way, Keyframe, markter... etc.
Not exactly what you wanted.. but i thinks it´s helpfull!

The best way seems to be to use "J" and "K" keys as Stefan has suggested.

But this will work with Layer Markers only. To add Layer Markers select the layer in Timeline, then go to Layer>Add marker or use the asterisk key on the keypad.
