People on the Move in the Social Business Industry: April 2, 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. Thanks for keeping track Jeremiah. We have had many clients struggle to find good social strategist. You either get kids with 500+ Facebook friends or experienced interactive strategist demanding top $$$. Any sense from your experiences where most of these people are coming from? I.e. what roles they previously held?
