Social Media Jobs

Defining a career within 'Social Media' can be tricky. How to define what a Social Media job entails? A key trend we’ve noticed in the social media space, mirroring the digital and marketing industries more generally: A real blurring of the lines of where the role of a Social Media Specialist starts and stops – and therefore confusion around what skills are needed to get a foot into the door and then succeed as Social Media Professional.

What it take to be a Social Media Professional

Strong digital copywriting skills remain central to the success within this space, but the social media landscape demands an increasingly diverse set of skills. From video production skills (think Periscope), the demand for more live-streamed content, to the data and insight skills demanded by the rise of social listening, audience segmentation and paid social advertising. From the increasing impact social media and content marketing has on SEO rankings, to the challenges of people defaulting to Twitter to air their customer services woes – gone are the days of the “Social Media Manager” existing in a silo.

Not being able to clearly define a standard set of skills required to become a Social Media Professional and the fact that the social media landscape changes and evolves at such a fast pace, means that the role and skills of every Social Media Professional has to mirror this evolution.
