      Hi Dale,

      I think this post is one way of obtaining your goal! Check this grouping on job openings, and try.
      Not trying means that 'no' is what you have for sure, trying means yes is a possibility..

      I am at the same point as you. Only I am not currently a web developer, but a Business Development Assistant (in my case that means: the communications / user side of digital communications). And last, but not least: I am based in Europe, The Netherlands, and attached to this little country. Do not mind travelling around or being away from home for a set period of time, but love to return back home here to my friends and family!

      Should I attempt to go get a Master's in consumer behavior or marketing analytics, should I try to back into it by trying to get a programming position at a marketing company, or
      should I just try to get an eMarketing certificate from the eMarketing
      Association and hope that helps?


      Read, meet, speak! I would say, when you finished Eric's book, I think you have a good basis. Next to that: learn from people in your network. Email, make appointments online and in real life. And search for additional training, such as certificates, courses, summits, et cetera.

      I am also wondering which (professional) masters suits best when you want to move to the web analytics in your career. Should I follow courses more IT driven (programming), or should I stick with my original specialism: Communications, and search for a 'Corporate Communications and Digital Media' master?
      I am currently looking for professional masters in The Netherlands, but if anyone of you has a recommendation further from home, please let me know (dont mind being away for a set period of time from my beloved home country). I am also keen to know which Universities are considered having quality courses abroad (USA, UK, anyway: English spoken/written courses)...and how the 'e-learning' masters are indicated. Is there a University where I can study communications at distance- and have a valid certificate afterwards?

      Dale, If you want, please contact me directly and we will work out what we can learn from each other, as you are more the IT side and I have a bachelor's title in Communications.

      Just a step off the path: Eric, is it possible to have a kind of 'secure' area somewhere, were the members of this group can post their CV's, if they want?

      Warm regards,
              Natalie Huijsman

        Regarding Natalie's question:

        "Just a step off the path: Eric, is it possible to have a kind of
        'secure' area somewhere, were the members of this group can post their
        CV's, if they want?"

        If this is something that the larger group would ** really ** be
        interested in I could try and accomodate. My hesitation is that A) I
        didn't really see the response I was hoping for when I asked people to
        contribute to the list of links (listen to me whine, huh?!?!) and B)
        I'm not sure if there are liability issues associated with doing
        something like this (e.g., what if my security is lame and your boss
        sees your CV on my site, etc.)

        My thinking at this point is that people considering job movement
        should look at the postings we've been able to find
        (http://www.webanalyticsdemystified.com/link_list.asp?focus=jobs) and
        perhaps create a new, obscured email address and post a "I'm looking
        for a new job in analytics" message to the group and see who bites. I
        know a number of vendors and companies are actively seeking talent
        right now and I'm happy to facilitate introductions as long as I can
        do so safely (given that I don't get a recruiter's fee for any of this
        ;-)

        Eric
