Here at Digital Gurus HQ we have seen a massive increase in the amount of companies and agencies recruiting for Community Managers and teams of Community Managers. With a pool of talented candidates out there, how can you stand out from the crowd and be a top class Community Manager?

Digital Gurus's insight:

In essence, your job is to keep conversations on topic and make sure people aren’t attacking each other. If either of those things happen and community members are stepping in to shut it down and diffuse the situation, then let the conversation run its natural course and don’t step in unless you think you have to.

Birkbeck Careers & Employability's curator insight, February 23, 5:12 AM

Have you ever found yourself in a job feeling vaguely dissatisfied and wondering what you were doing there? Steve Jobs famously said “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”. Loving your job, being happy in your work is something we all aspire to in one way or another. It energises and inspires us. The cold reality is that often bills, mortgages and  people who rely on us often make the choice for us. We then find ourselves crystallised into a certain professional persona and drawn along a particular career pathway, into a particular often negative way of working without realising it. This article from Career Savvy takes an holistic view and shows how rash career choices may eventually come back to haunt us physically as well as emotionally and suggests we take a long hard look at how happy we are and in what we prioritise. It highlights things we should perhaps stop doing because of their toxic effect. How happy are you in your current way of working? What kind of impact is it having on you? Do you feel that you are fulfilling your true potential? If the answer is no-What positive action have you taken? Share your views with us.
