Outline

Facebook Blueprint recently launched the Facebook Certified Community Manager Program, a standardized professional training and certification aimed at establishing best practices and standards around community management.

For students, we see this certification as an opportunity for resume enhancement to meet the growing need for social media professionals with online community building knowledge.

As we build more supplementary resources to support educators as they prepare their students for this certification, your feedback will be critical. We invite you to join this pilot, and help us establish the foundation of these materials.

"While I was looking for jobs in the digital marketing landscape, [the community manager] certification gave me an edge over other candidates and acted as a catalyst to secure the job.” - Saumil Joshi, Digital Marketing Intern at Bryt Life Foods & Rutgers University student
