Do I need to live in a big city to start a career in community management?

Are there particular cities where our students should plan to be if they want to get into this career? For our students who don't live in New York or San Francisco or other big cities, is it realistic to plan to do a career management career? Are there jobs out there in small cities or rural areas? What is just "possible" and what is considered "common" in terms of geography?

Todd’s Answer

Long as you're passionate with a cause that's able to bring people together, I don't think you need to live in a big city to be a community manager. Does it help? Definitely. Necessary, not so much. I'd leverage social media and like minded contacts to help build your community.

Community management or common-pool resource management is the management of a common resource or issue by a community through the collective action of volunteers and stakeholders. The resource managed can be either material or informational.
