Shopping trolleys by Håkan Dahlström

Cyber Monday is traditionally THE day for cyber sales. The Monday after Thanksgiving is usually an online shopping free for all but this year the day beat the lot of for the number of online sales. Are things looking up or is it just a sign of online promotions and discounts doing the trick?

According to the latest figures from ComScore, online sales were up 16% on last year. The purchases taking place during those 24 hours generated a massive one billion dollars - for the first time in history and the greatest ever spent online in one day. At the same time, holiday spending increased by 13% over the same period in 2009.

E-commerce careering

VodafoneThis series of posts about Ecommerce is brought to you in conjunction with Vodafone, who are currently recruiting a Head of Ecommerce, see Chinwag Jobs for more information.

Working in e-commerce is both challenging and stimulating. From a career that was an almost unheard of niche a decade ago, it has evolved into an expanding universe of work possibilities. There are almost as many different types of role as there are jobs around, each has its own challenges and skills requirements. Today's seasoned e-commerce professional is part geek, part business person, part designer and more besides.

2943502167_f61ed3cfdd_m.jpgWith the move from mortar to clicks and the emergence of mobile e-commerce (Nokia has also just invested $70M in Obopay), it is clear that there are increasing job opportunities in the space, despite the challenges in the economy faces. The skills required to stay ahead in the e-commerce space are broad, and still rapidly evolving. Hoping the skills that got you this far are going to enable you move on, or even stay where you are, is a risky strategy. Continual personal development is the name of the game.
