Getting It : Careers in Social Media


Are there really jobs in social media and if so, how do I get one? With all the self-proclaimed social media pundits, experts & gurus out there, it’s easy to wonder if the only jobs in social media are for consultants or agencies trying to help big corporations “get it.” Well Kelly is living proof that some big companies do “get it” and are willing to put their money where their online mouths are by hiring specialists with expertise at “being social online.”

Join Kelly Feller for the second official Social Media Club Portland meeting where she’ll summarize various corporate social media jobs (hers included) & what they actually entail, explore ways to stand out in this increasingly crowded space, and give some hints to agencies & consultants who are helping companies make sense of the growing social media marketing trend.
