Conversations with Community Managers Episode 3: Ryan Paugh, BrazenCareerist.com

Voce Communications has partnered with The Community Roundtable to produce a new podcast series,Conversations with Community Managers. In this series, Voce’s Doug Haslam and The Community Roundtable’s Jim Storer speak with people from a variety of industries about their efforts with online community; what they are doing, the challenges and opportunities unique to their industry, and the differences and similarities between “community” and “social media.” Episode 3 is an interview with Ryan Paugh, co-founder (with Ryan Healy and Penelope Trunk) and Director of Community for BrazenCareerist.com, the social network for Generation Y professionals where, as Ryan says, they “can have a voice online.” Some of the podcast highlights include:
  • The challenge of managing a community where the community is the product
  • How much attention to pay to “tone” when your community caters to a specific demographic (in this case, “Generation Y”)
  • The role of passion for your topic/category when managing a community
  • The freedom to mix in new tools and technology with a community of early adopters
  • Community management is work- unless you like helping people
