  5. … of course now HR depts are all wanting to peek at your S&M sites ..er.. I meant SM sites!

  6. This is a great article / infographic. I agree with MOST of it. I’m not a fan of encouraging people to work for free…

    Cheers!

  7. How realistic is it to do some of these jobs remotely? For example, if I’m in Calgary, Alberta, how likely would it be to become a social media manager for a company like Coca-Cola that is headquartered in Atlanta? I’m just wondering on this point as while I can see how some of the work isn’t face to face, I’d imagine building the trust could require some face time in one form or another.
