Traditional business roles are changing and evolving into new forms. Jobs like sales and marketing have been uprooted and renamed, and young professionals are learning different skill sets than their predecessors in order to fit into new business models. Jasper Jackson, blogger at The Media Briefing, writes about the changes in these roles in his article, “9 Job Titles Changing the Face of Modern Media Business.” In this week’s edition of Jobs of the Week, we bring you job postings that reflect the direction of Jackson’s article, including social media and analytics.
