People on the Move in the Social Business Industry: April 13, 2011

Interesting post here by industry veteran Tac Anderson (former HP social strategist) about how strategists are changing jobs so quickly –and how it could be a detriment to their career. Be sure to read, as I know how recruiters are seeking to contact you all, so really think about completing your mission before moving on.

The hires in the social business space continue to heat up, in fact the market research data (read the report) shows that hiring is the top spend in 2011. Expect there to be more hires over coming quarters.

Both the submissions on this job announcement board, as well as available social media positions at corporations continue to pour in.

In this continued digest of job changes, I like to salute those that continue to join the industry in roles focused on social media, see the archives, which I’ve been tracking since Q4, 2007.
