PRNewser is running an interesting series about how to get a job in social media via interviews with public relations and interactive agencies. The agency answers ten questions aimed at giving readers a sense of what an agency looks for in a social media hire and how social media inititatives are integrated in the agency. Lots of great information here for those of you looking for a social media focus.
