YOUR LEARNING JOURNEY
Some, but not all people working as Community Managers have a degree in Business or Marketing. Above all, you should be organised, friendly, great at listening and bringing people together.
As a professional, you’ll create and grow a community around the game studio and its products. You’ll be responsible for connecting fans to one another, sharing news, finding feedback and promoting the brand at all opportunities. You’ll have a wide knowledge of social media channels and have experience with Customer relationship management (CRM) software like Hubspot, automation platforms like Mailchimp and insight tools like Google Analytics.
Working in the games industry is highly competitive and you’ll need to make sure your CV stands out to employers and course leaders.
As a Community Manager, experience in the game sector will likely be essential so demonstrating a passion and understanding for games will be important. You will also need to showcase experience in content, social media, marketing, analytics and customer support. For more general ideas on developing your CV, see our top tips page.
Whatever role you are working in, it is essential that you understand the game making process. You can head to our build a game section for first steps; join a regular game jam to build up your skills & network; or start modding others games to gain experience.
