If you’re in the social media industry and you’re not reading Tac Anderson at New Comm Biz, you’re missing out. His latest on Job-hopping Social Media Strategists are thought to provoke and fair, and that’s just the first of many gems on the site.
I’ve asserted in interviews and on this site that a bubble exists for social strategy. Strangely it is not in the upper levels of consulting, nor is it in the entry-level positions. The high-level consulting, ranging from $150-400 an hour, is entirely consistent with other kinds of management consulting on the market, from technology to human resources to marketing and law. The lower levels pay as low as $10 an hour, with most jobs in a basic entry-level range of $30-35,000 (not so vast with inflation but in line with other positions with that experience level).
