People on the Move in the Social Business Industry: May 20, 2011

Over the past few years, I’ve been managing these hire mentions, they started out as slow, then moved to monthly, however the industry is picking up and I’m publishing twice a month as this space continues to accelerate forward.

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. Jeremiah – It is refreshing to see companies (albeit slowly) adopt a social business model. Internal customer service, external customer service, the adoption of proper business intelligence, real internal collaboration, focusing on putting people in the right strength positions to succeed and providing exemplary products and services. This may be daunting to most but not if they knew how positively it can and will affect the revenue line.
