A little bit of background
Content categories are used to help organize all the content on your platform. You can create a group of categories for each type of content on your platform (i.e. job categories for jobs, event categories for events, etc.). You can't apply categories from one group to other types of content (if you feel that you might want to, that's a good sign that the category in question should actually be created as a community!).
Below, we've compiled a list of some of the most successful content category setups! Feel free to recreate these lists on your platform, or tweak them based on the goals of your institution!
