The community management field is relatively new, so it’s no surprise that there isn’t a clear career path for many. Especially when community management means different things for different companies.
Combine that with what amounts to probably one of the most demanding jobs on a psychological level and you end up with a pretty difficult process.
But it doesn’t have to be that way for candidates like you and recruiters.
The most successful matches are the ones where both stakeholders (organizations and community managers) take a very thorough approach in finding their next big opportunity. With that in mind, we focused this article to cover both sides of the hiring equation.
We were inspired by a recent request from a community manager seeking her next big opportunity. Instead of reinventing the wheel, we scoured the web to find the best resources and articles on how to build a great resume, how to interview like a champ and where to find your next opportunity.
