Title: Print and Content staffers needed!
Post by: Mouse on March 08, 2012, 11:55:57 AM
If you're interested in joining FanimeCon staff, both the Print and Content departments are looking for people. The next staff meeting is at 3pm on March 10th, 2012, at the San Jose Hilton. Swing by and talk to us (or just email us) if you're interested!  ;D

You can find out more information about the Print and Content positions at the following links: http://apps.fanime.com/2012/staffapply/spotlight.php#spot23 (http://apps.fanime.com/2012/staffapply/spotlight.php#spot23) and http://apps.fanime.com/2012/staffapply/spotlight.php#spot22 (http://apps.fanime.com/2012/staffapply/spotlight.php#spot22)

What hours should Print and Content staff expect to work? Would it be a lot more preparation pre-con, during the con, etc.?

What hours should Print and Content staff expect to work? Would it be a lot more preparation pre-con, during the con, etc.?

For Print staff:
Types of work: We do everything. Pre-Con preparation. During Con Delivery. Post Con cleanup.
Hours staff are expected to work: minimum of 24 hours, your shifts will be assigned/negotiated based on departmental need and the events you wish to attend.
Shifts: Print starts working at 6pm on May 23rd (the Wednesday before Con) for set up keeps working until ~6pm on May 28th (Monday evening) for cleanup.

Additional training sessions will occur after the general staff meetings, attendance of at least two of these is required to pick up your staff badge. However, your presence at as many of them as you can make is highly encouraged as you will obtain more skills, become more efficient at your work, and integrate yourself into a cohesive teamwork environment

For Content staff:
Types of work: Primarily pre-Con for the Program Guide. During Con for the newsletters.
Hours staff are expected to work: minimum of 24 hours with shifts being assigned/negotiated based on departmental need and the events you wish to attend.
Shifts: Pre-Con work requires you to be readily available over email. If you can make it on May 23rd to help with set up, it is greatly appreciated and encouraged. Otherwise you work shifts during regular Con hours.

Thank you for your thorough reply!
I was primarily interested in Content...I do understand the type of work that needs to be done for Content, since I always read the Program Guides every year and pick up the At-Con newsletters. I don't know if I would be a good candidate for Content, though :/
The only experience I have besides school assignments is probably personal blogging. I am very good at listening to instructions, though (I know this skill would be good for Print, but I don't think I could commit to all those pre-con meetings).

I really would be interested on applying for the content staff!
I have worked with One of the staff members before hand but i was unable to be sure what I was doing back then in 2010. Do I need to show you an example in order to apply? or do i show up around may 23rd?
