Top Ten Hottest Jobs in Social Media
Heidi Golledge, CEO and Co-founder of CareerBliss says, "Due to the meteoric rise in the popularity of sites such as Facebook and Twitter, we are seeing a surge in social media jobs. Companies now realize that their brand presence and communication on social media channels are just as important as what they communicate on any other traditional marketing channels. The need for experts who are familiar with building communities and engaging with brand advocates is a huge priority for companies. The CareerBliss data offers insight into a trend that will only increase in years to come. Social communities surrounding companies, products and brands are something that is now part of our everyday culture."
Social media jobs vary more than ever before. Social media careers include positions where individuals are strategizing on how to best communicate a company's brand on their social channels, to those who focus on community building and marketing through social media as well as individuals who help create social media products and applications to better optimize communities both on and off the web.
Matt Miller, CTO and Co-founder of CareerBliss, "Social media jobs do not just mean someone sitting and posting on Facebook. Careers in this field are an integral part of a company's overall communication and web presence plan, as many search engines now consider social media interactions as part of their rankings. We see jobseekers in this field being placed in marketing agencies, or working directly for a company or brand, as well as individuals who work for social media application companies which are growing every day. It's an exciting time to see this field expand."
