When it comes to finding a new job or hiring the right person for a job in your business, it is crucial for them to have certain traits that will make them right for the position. Experience is one of the most important things, but at the same time, passion is also crucial in order to make sure that the person who is hired actually loved to do their job and will do it the right way day in and out.
- When it comes down to passion, or experience for community professional hires, it can depend on whether the position is a senior or junior one.
- Although passion is useful and important, with more senior positions it’s vital to have hires with an array of community experience.
- For a senior level position, you need individuals with level 4 technical skill, that can manage a needed technical process from selection to implementation.

At a junior level, you want people who can confidently answer questions which arise, initiate interesting discussions, connect naturally with people (and perhaps even be a known person in the field already).”
