Minneapolis-based social media and digital marketing agency The Social Lights® has created the opportunity for you, and is accepting applications for The Social Lights® Community Manager Training & Certification Program until April 22, 2013.

This 6-week accelerated course equips qualified candidates with the knowledge, skills and strategies to excel as full-time Social Media Community Managers. The training blends real client projects with industry speakers, relevant case studies, and competitive social media challenges. Participants will learn to align strategy, create content, develop creative, manage multiple platforms and pages and once, and measure the success of their efforts.

But how will this program be your springboard to a full-time job? In addition to real-world experience and networking, The Social Lights line up contract job placements, onboarding, and ongoing education for their students and employees. Their desire to connect the dots—of social media skill to professional practice, led them to create this program.

“While there are hundreds of social media jobs posted each day across the country, there are very few qualified candidates to fill them” says Martha McCarthy, co-founder and CEO of The Social Lights. She adds, “That’s why we’ve combined our hands-on social media experience with our extreme passion for this flourishing field of communications, to develop The Social Lights® Community Manager Training Program.
