How to Land an Awesome Content or Community Management Job

During our end of the year wrap-up chat, several regulars said they'd love to have a brainstorming session on how to land your dream job. Chat regular Ken Gordon (@quickmuse) joined us this week to lead that conversation.

We kicked off with a poll to see if most of us were creating our own jobs, having them created for us, or applying for open jobs. Although there wasn't a clear consensus, what's important to note is a number of chat participants have jobs that weren't landed as a result of replying to a job listing. 

Q1: What is your community management or content marketing dream job?

Q2: How do you build the skills you need to be ready for that role?

Q3: What can you do to build a personal brand that shows you have what it takes to excel at your dream job?

Q4: How does one actually find an awesome job?

Q5: What are some interview pitfalls to avoid?

Q6: How do you get in the door? What can you do to stand out from the other applicants for your dream job?
