If you’re recruiting for a new member of your community team, how do you identify potential candidates, create a successful interview process and then support the on-boarding of your new team member? CEFP2019 Fellow, Liz Guzy, walks us through the steps.
As community managers we are often tasked with many different roles, including Human Resources. As projects launch and demands mount, we realize we can no longer do it all and must consider hiring additional staff, but this process can be overwhelming and anxiety-inducing:
- How do we carve out the time for the hiring process that we can be sure yields the best applicant pool?
- What if no one applies or wants to be part of our community?
- How do we navigate adding members to our team when our community is still being established/growing?
