Job Description for Content Manager
Content managers work with creative personnel and freelancers to establish and maintain creative materials used by a website, a marketing campaign, media aggregator, or similar entity that offers content. Their work includes editing for appropriateness of tone, style, and subject matter. Because many content managers work for web media sites, they usually review not only written suggestions, but also video and sound content (such as podcasts). They may even be used for input on the layout and graphic presentation of the site itself.
