Akron, OH (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
HR departments are having to create from scratch new job descriptions for positions like Director of Global E-Business, Digital Strategy Manager, Web Strategies, VP Director of Internet Marketing, Business Development Manager of Interactive Sales, Email Production Coordinator and many others because their firms are scrambling to develop Internet strategies to reach consumers and their customers online.
The only problem is however, that creating new job descriptions for new positions positions like theses takes time that busy HR professionals don't have!
Internet Strategies Group has created a comprehensive report, "Social Media/Internet Staff Job Descriptions" that includes 74 different Social Media and New Media Job descriptions HR professionals can cut and paste into a word documents and forward it department managers to add their comments. The job descriptions include examples of prerequisites, responsibilities and expected outcomes.
Don Philabaum, author of the book "Internet Dough" (http://www.internetdough.net) suggested, "The phenomenal growth in consumer use of social media and online communities is causing a rush by companies to hire staff responsible for developing company Internet strategies. It took the New York Times 157 years to reach one million subscribers. In just 4 years MySpace and Facebook have grown to over 100 million subscribers and Linkedin has grown to 30 million subscribers. Businesses leaders need to bring on board qualified staff to develop, maintain and manage a comprehensive business internet strategy for all departments in the company, including customer service, product development, sales/marketing, public relations, finance and other departments."
According to Philabaum: "A weak job description can result in the wrong hire. From the conversations we've had with HR professionals, many department managers ask them to find a social media candidate but they don't know what they are looking for. Even less have a clear understanding of the responsibilities and expectations. As a result they tell the HR department to develop a job description from scratch. This can take 4-6 hours to research, time HR managers don't have. Our report, 'Social Media/Internet Staff Job Descriptions' will save HR managers time. They can simply cut and paste from any of the 100+ job descriptions compiled in the report and in minutes send it to those who need it."
According to Phyllis Rodgers, VP of Internet Strategies Group, "Our report, 'Social Media/Internet Staff Job Descriptions' will help organizations craft better job descriptions for these new positions so they can find the right people and manage them more effectively."
