My name is Mohamed and I’m a community moderator with a social media platform called Campus Society. It’s designed as a space for university students - incoming freshmen and those that are on their way out + plus everything in between. I have been working as a community moderator there for about 10 months now, helping to moderate the content, help to onboard users, and general user/ community support.
I have been getting more and more fascinated with the work of a community manager. I work with a team that includes community managers, a head of community, a support lead, and of course, other mods. As a result, the work of managing a community in and of itself has interested me. I am a university student myself and have one year left. I’m wondering about making the jump from moderation to management and what that sort of thing would take?
Of course, I will also be asking my coworkers about this - they’re really lovely and supportive. I also thought I’d post on here since I’ll be coming back to Feverbee regularly anyhow.
Thanks in advance for any help/ insight you can provide!
