People on the Move in the Social Business Industry, Sept 26, 2012

Find out who’s investing in social business by tracking who got hired.  Where people get hired, there’s often investment for opportunity and growth.

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