Where are the community manager applicants?

 

Recently Jive advertised a job opening for a Community Management intern. We had almost no applicants. Our Social Media intern position, on the other hand, had many applicants. Maybe it's because the general public understands the concept of social media more than it does community management. Maybe people think social media jobs are more fun, or have a better career path.

 

For whatever reason, we had to steal a social media applicant in order to fill our Community Management intern position. Luckily, I snagged a college student, Carmel Schetrit from UC Berkeley, with a lot of potential and I am actively training her on community management over the next three months. Meet Carmel...

Welcome Carmel Schetrit to the community! She just started yesterday.

 

Carmel's intern project for the summer will be to provide a proposal to answer the question:

 

How can we educate/prepare college students in the career of community management?

 

I've asked her to do a bunch of research and even reach out to some of you. If you are willing to meeting with her for a 1/2 hour to give her your opinion on the question, we would love to set up some time to talk.

 

With the results of her proposal, we hope to create an infographic-like poster that can be hung up in the hallways of college and university English, Communication, Psychology, and Marketing departments with a call to action on how they can learn more about Community Management as a career and what to do to build their skills.

 

Please join me in doing what we can to grow more community managers and better define what this role requires.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Heart over Headquarters | Elisa Steele | LinkedIn

 

Read Elisa Steele's latest LinkedIn blog post to find out how Jive is living the future of work by eliminating it's corporate headquarters. We are HQ-free!

 

Determining where to establish your centralized headquarters used to be an important business decision for companies. But for today's way of working, the importance of the HQ label has diminished. If your teams are working toward your mission from everywhere, what's so important about the team who sits at "HQ"? A shift away from physical headquarters offices started almost a decade ago as companies looked for ways to position themselves better in the fast-changing global marketplace. Today, there are at least 76 companies that operate mostly or completely virtually, which is triple the number on last year's list by FlexJobs.

 

The leaders at these companies understand that flexible, unique individuals can come together from anywhere to do great things with the right tools – regardless of where they are physically located. Access to technology has changed everything and the notion of having one specific location where the magic happens is not relevant anymore; working from anywhere and everywhere is now the way of the world. Modern communications and collaboration tools allow people to connect instantly, regularly and opportunistically. Leaders and teams can be fluid and effective regardless of where employees are, allowing organizations to hire and retain the best talent and build a strong, engaging culture. One that actually creates competitive advantage.

 

We'd love to hear what you think about going HQ-free! Read the full article now on LinkedIn and comment back to Elisa today!
