The Community Manager

Following on from his post on how to hire for social computing and his search for a community manager (CM) for Forrester, Jeremiah Owyang has published what he learn about CMs from the 19 resumes he received.

As it happens, I fit the average CM persona quite nicely: I have 7 years of work experience, a technology background, plenty of marketing experience (especially in evangelising the use of technology and the Internet), and I have an MBA (well, I will in seven weeks). Oh, and even though this is a given: I believe in, and am very interested in working in, the social media space.

Unfortunately, I've only seen one real CM-type job advertised in the Australian market so far. Here's hoping I come across a few more over the next few weeks as well.
