Another great source of community managers & Copy writers- from “old media”

If you are looking to hire good community managers, there are multiple skills you are looking for obviously. A good community manager is a multi-faceted individual. The skills include: Knowledge of technology, Customer Service, Marketing, Web and Copy Writing, etc.

The newspaper industry overall is going through some rough times with readership dropping precipitously. San Diego, Chicago, Seattle have layoffs.

I would love to hear any success stories of hiring good reporters, journalists. Feel free to drop a comment. If you are a media person looking for a job, look at the community job board.
