Getting your foot in the door in any industry is never easy, but we imagine it’s even tougher in an industry that’s changing as fast as the speed of tech. So if you’re trying to parlay your love of Twitter into a paying gig, we sympathize.
That’s why it’s so awesome that Jeremiah Owyang, web strategist, has compiled this list of who works where in social media. If you’re interested in being a community manager for a tech company, for example, there’s sixteen names to look up, contact, and network with. If you want to be a social media strategist at Trader Joe’s, maybe you want to email the one at Whole Foods and ask her how she got her gig. Heck, even Cirque Du Soleil has a social media manager, and she’s listed too.
This is a goldmine for anyone looking to get into the field, so best of luck!
