What is your lifestyle like as a community manager recently out of college?
Most of our students are very interested in how their "whole" life will look even outside of work. Given the hours you work, the compensation you get, and the stresses / joys of your job as a community manager, what does your after-work lifestyle look like? Is there time for family? For friends? For self? For travel?
_This is part of a question series for CMX Summit to highlight exciting careers in community management. If you are interested in a career in community management, now would be a good time to ask a question of your own!_ #community-management
Community management was energizing for me whenever I got to connect with a community. Even if I wrote about something I personally didn't pursue in my personal time (like reading Jane Austen novels -- yes, I wrote for a company that wished to promote this), it brought me absolute joy seeing their community react to content centered around that. While negative comments can at times feel draining, there's also joy in resolving customer issues and winning them back.
