Nekocon is currently looking for Staff members to help fill out our Attendee Management Services staff section... (Basically Security) We are trying to make the con a friendly place, and are not looking for anyone with huge egos or power trips....

There are lots of openings on staff, and we are looking for new and experienced alike! If you have any questions please e-mail me
chris@anime-nerv.com... If you are interested, please e-mail me as well!

Happy Cosplaying, and see you at Nekocon!

He speaks the truth.

I'm sure between the two of us, we can answer questions if you have them.

Don't worry, we don't bite! *grins*

What is the age limit for helping out?

Would we still be able to walk around and have the full advantages of looking at everything Neko-con has to offer?

I'm just asking because it's my first time going and I'd like to explore. But, I would like to help if my ability to leave a certain place isn't restricted or limited to a certain area.

The age limit to be staff is 18 - if you're under 18 but at least 16, you can still be a gofer which is more or less as it sounds. That's a volunteer, not a staff position.

For AMS, the department Chris and I are talking about, you work a 6 hour shift each day, and last year at least, they let you decide which time chunk you wanted to work. Most likely you'll be patrolling, so you'll be walking around the venue. During your shift, you obviously can't sit and watch, say, a panel, but you can still interact with people outside in the convention itself.

You might be stuck at a table, last year on Saturday for about half of one of my shifts, I was sitting at the table in the convention center peace bonding weapons/props. But there's only a few people that are needed for things like that.

Last year, I was still able to get to the events I wanted to go to, such as the cosplay, a couple hentai showings, opening ceremonies, and a panel or two. Some of them were luck that I wasn't working, some of them, I requested hours that I knew wouldn't interfere (ex. 8am to 2pm, which wouldn't conflict with the cosplay)

If you think you're still interested, tell one of us, and we can put you in contact with the correct people. Include your full name and e-mail address, as well, if you do.

Keep is mind as well... that if you cannot Staff, or do not want the "limitations" you can always gopher... every hour is totally voluntary and you will still get to help us out... and you will not be working a strait 6 hour shift unless you really want to... but we can definately use the help with Security at this point... thanks for the interest,
