Whether you are looking for a new job in SEO or intending to hire in this area you would be well advised to check your job description against similar positions and choose your job title carefully.
The Search Engine Optimisation market has developed considerably over recent times. On-site optimisation (i.e. what you do to your own sites from an “ease of use” and search engine technical point of view) was pretty much the entire picture a few years ago. Nowadays effective “inbound marketing” brings you search traffic and online authority (i.e. inbound links and traffic from the places, other than your own sites, where you are discussed/referenced/followed etc.)
A good SEO specialist (whether on the client or agency side) really understands this and knows how to create the necessary interactions between content/site structure/colleagues to make sure that off site and onsite activities combine effectively.
