Why a Social Media Program?

Social Media Job Growth
Social media is one of the fastest growing job segments today. A simple search for social media jobs on careerbuilders.com or simplyhired.com tells the story.

The catch is companies require candidates to have real social media marketing knowledge, not just a familiarity with Facebook or LinkedIn.

Job Training Required
Employers are demanding a high-level of practical and technical social media knowledge. This can be seen by the skills and experience requirements of their job descriptions.

So employees wanting to keep their job and job seekers hoping to land one seek a formal social media education.
