People on the Move in the Social Business Industry: March 1, 2011

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.

  1. The amount of time you put into compiling this list is impressive. Thanks.

    I enjoy looking at it, just to see what companies are taking social media seriously and what job titles and positions are most being filled.

    Takes a little work, but a good way to get a feel for were corporate social media is at and going.

  2. Companies like Dell, JetBlue and Zappos are well known for the power of social media to expand their operations. Some large companies use the Internet as a social tool for finding potential customers for a lasting reputation and win big contracts.

  3. I’m at Current TV now, moved from Yahoo in October last year. Not sure if I’m still considered a recent mover or not :0)
