The dot-com bust chased a lot of talent away from the Internet as people sought employment in more traditional industries in corporate America. But now that the digital space is among the most sought after by companies -- drawing advertising dollars away from print, television and radio -- there is a lot of demand for Internet sales and marketing account directors with 7 to 9 years' of online marketing and sales experience.

In major markets like New York, account directors can earn $150,000 or more. In secondary markets like Atlanta or Cleveland, they can earn $120,000 to $130,000.

Account directors typically have backgrounds in print, radio and television advertising or worked as producers or marketing managers with dot-com companies.
