Many people ask me how to get a job in Social Media. First thing you should do access your existing knowledge. You might be the best social media marketer but where is your proof? Just because you have a lot of high school and college friends on facebook doesn’t mean a thing. Being able to have tons of friends comment on a picture of you looking like a drunk retard isn’t going to hack it.
According to The Main Street Analyst:
Unless your job is managing the company’s online marketing or social media accounts, you’re most likely not gonna get a green light to access social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and (especially) YouTube at your workplace. Most companies simply hate it. But despite this, did you know that social media can also land you your dream job?
Therefore, you need PROOF to validate your claim. Show them your Klout or Kred score. If you don’t know what that is, then you might not be the expert you claim.
