Supplemental Questions


  1. The Department’s website is a critical communication tool and serves as the hub for the most updated information regarding all the Department’s programs and projects. Because of the heavy use by both Maine residents and visitors to our state, it is imperative that information be kept up-to-date and delivered in a clear and succinct manner. What methods would you use to keep information on the site correct and easy to find?


  1. The Department produces multiple annual law summaries in both a print and digital format, which requires a particularly high attention to detail. Additionally, the project involves multiple outside contracted vendors and input from several employees from within the agency. How would you manage this project to sure each summary is completed correctly and on-time AND incorporates the public’s need to have an easy to understand law summary in multiple formats?



  1. You share a blog post on the Department’s Facebook page about a fisheries management project involving salmon that was recently completed on a popular southern Maine water body. Shortly after you share the post, a user adds a comment about their dissatisfaction with the Department’s efforts to educate the public about invasive species, including northern pike. Before long, the comment thread has evolved into a negative and inappropriate conversation. How would you handle this situation?


  1. The Department has the need to communicate with hunters who have moose permits for the upcoming season to increase their awareness of a new law that has just gone into effect and to ensure that they’re prepared for a safe and successful hunt. How would you propose communicating with this specific audience? How often would you communicate with them and what medium(s) would you use?
