How Not To Get Pigeon-Holed
The latest episode of 15 Minutes of Game is out. In it, Jon and I talk about how not to get pigeon-holed as being the “X” guy when you’re trying to get into Community Management. It’s something that can happen easily. So many people come into community management by running their own third-party community sites. It’s certainly how I started. Before doing CM work for videogames, I was running the web’s largest Superman fan site. I had to work hard to get beyond the idea that I was just the “Superman Guy.” It’s come up in every job interview I’ve ever done, frankly. It’s that pervasive. Hear what Jon and I had to say about the subject over at 15mog.
