I’m Matt, your friendly neighborhood Community Manager Stalker / Headhunter.
Ugh … try recruiting for one of these positions. Some people think that just because they were a coffee shop manager and now they poke around in code in their mom’s basement and have a twitter handle that they can call themselves “Community” managers. It’s kinda like the crowd that call themselves code “ninjas”. While I don’t discourage ambition and encourage people to be confident in themselves, its a bit of a snafu to filter out the noise. These are the growing pains we all experience with something new, and Community Manager is a relatively new vertical. There are few effective filters when trying to conduct a search. Focusing just on mass media (that you have no idea if anyone is actually reading) is not what true Community management is all about. There are the funding partners, the developers, the conferences, etc. Personally, I think Developer Advocate is a more technical description to separate those who lean towards the developers and engineering, and Event Manager for those who lean towards …well, events. In any case, don’t get hung on being called “Director”, “Manager”, “VP”, or whatever. Just focus on doing good work and people will recognize you for it. I would help out a “Manager” of a Community of 100k sooner than I would help out a “VP” of a Community of 3. A few helpful keywords (skip the fluff) in your public profiles specific to your community ( like Open Source, SDN, etc. ) and activities (Speaker at OSCON, LinuxCon, etc.) will help you get recognized by those who count when the time comes.
