Local Search & Social Media Jobs Galore

My network of contacts has been pinging me recently about all sorts of job opportunities. I’m obviously not available currently (Praized Media stealth start-up anyone?) but I figure I would give some exposure to a couple of those opportunities.

In Montreal:

Description: the Senior Manager – Lead Generation is the national prime on Lead Generation programs/initiatives from a marketing standpoint. Responsible for the design, implementation and execution of the end-to-end, cross-functional lead generation framework, from lead sourcing to lead processing. Responsible for developing and delivering the annual lead generation plan and budget with measurable targets of new, qualified sales leads. Lead cross-functional teams to support program/product launches with Lead Generation initiatives. (Yellow Pages Group has 50 other jobs listed on their web site currently.)

Description: in French here

Description: amongst other things, work with Sales, and Product Development groups to drive projects, define and implement a customer communications and lead generation strategy and contribute to the product improvement process.

I was also pinged by headhunters for a business development job at Askmen.com and a Vice-President position at Edelman, both in Montreal also. I don’t have a description for them.

In Seattle:

Description: The Director of Business Development will be responsible for driving the reseller business development strategy and execution across the portfolio of Marchex businesses reporting directly to the VP of Business Development.

In San Francisco:

Solstice Beverages, Inc., CEO / GM

Canoe411, Quebecor’s New Canadian Online Directory Site, Soft-Launches

It looks like Canoe411, the new online directory from MediaPages (Quebecor Media’s directory company) has soft-launched. Powered by Local Matters’ Destination Search Platform, it includes data from InfoCanada.

Canoe411 home page

MediaPages has announced that, in 2008, they will “begin publishing urban directories, co-branded with Vidéotron (Quebecor Media’s cableco), in the Greater Montreal and Greater Quebec City areas. These directories complete an array of regional directories currently published by MediaPages in communities across Canada, co-branded with local and community newspapers owned by Sun Media and Quebecor Media.” You can see an example of their print book here.

Canoe.ca, Quebecor’s portal, has yet to replace 411.ca with the new site.

Update (02/11/2008): it looks like the site is gone.

Update2 (05/27/2008): Canoe 411 (Canoe411.ca) Now Part of the Canoe Network
