    Great Infographic!

    Not sure how you got to the figure for “Vice Presidents” of +23 000? This is not a job title we have in South Africa.

    A VP would roughly be equated to a Director in South Africa.

      Hi Nino

      The statistics come straight out of Linkedin. The term Vice President is used by Linkedin and would only show growth if people have categorised themselves as a VP.

      So I guess people are still referring to themselves as Vice Presidents in some South African organisations.

      Thanks for the comment!

    finally – a useful INFOGRAPHIC !interestingg that more and more companies are making the separation between Facebook and Linked IN. Ie. FB for personal and Linked IN for business.

    p.s any chance you can make the graphic slightly bigger as the stats and the job sectors are slightly out of focus and pixilated.
