View Full Version : AM Staff Positions Open

05-27-2003, 02:46 AM
Ani-Magic currently has some staff positions that need to be filled. All positions are part of Convention Operations (Con-Ops). There are currently three miscellaneous staff positions, and two asistant section leader positions.

Staff are unpaid, and must pay a nominal membership fee to the AVAS (less than con reg). Meals will be provided, but probably not crash space. In other words, these positions are for selfless people who REALLY love staffing anime cons and want to make a difference.

WARNING: Cosplayers on staff are not permitted to enter the masquerade on a competitive basis. However, you are more than welcome to wear a costume in the performance of your duties.

Con Ops Staff

Ani-Magic is looking for reliable people to help run its nerve center (Con Ops).

The candidate will perform a variety of tasks involving the general operation of the convention. These may include maintaining constant communication with individual departments, ensuring that departments are adequately staffed with volunteers, answering attendee and guest questions, maintaining the cohesion of the con as a whole, and dealing with escalated issues beyond the department level. Additionally, the applicant may be asked to operate an information booth, or rove around the convention.

The ideal candidate must possess good people skills and be able to communicate instructions and relay messages effectively. Previous con staff experience preferred, but volunteer experience in general will be considered (i.e. School organizations, Church organizations, et cetra). Candidates must be at least 18 years of age. Applicants are forewarned this can be a stressful position and long hours may (read: probably will) be required.

This is a non-leadership staff position. Not a volunteer (gopher) position. As such, it is commensurate with increased responsibility. The position answers directly to the Director or Assistant Director of Con Ops.

Assistant Medical Tech

Ani-Magic requires an Assistant Medical Tech as a safeguard against on-site injuries. The candidate must be knowledgeable in First Aid procedures, CPR, and must be able to swim. The position is subordinated to the Chief Medical Tech and Assistant Director of Con Ops (currently Ms. Candice Boyles).

Red Cross or other official certification of the above is required to apply for this position.

Assistant Volunteer Coordinator

Ani-Magic requires an Assistant Volunteer Coordinator to assist with all volunteer-related issues, including the assignment of volunteers to individual departments. For more information, please contact the address below. This position answers to the Volunteer Coordinator (currently Mr. Michael Choi).

For more information, or to apply for these positions, please contact Mr. John Hokanson Jr. at kensuke_128@yahoo.com or by calling 909-551-8094.

Include your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, age, and any qualifications/experience you have. Attaching a resume would be appreciated, but is not required.

Thank you for your interest in Ani-Magic 2003!

[H2]Medical Position Closed[/B]

For liability reasons we have elected to close the Assistant Medical Tech position.

While there will not be dedicated medical staff at AM this year, please feel free to list any medical skill qualifications you have when applying for the other positions. They may come in handy during life threatening emergencies.

Do all positions require you to be at least 18 to apply? Because your Con Ops Assistant Director isn't...

Actually, I am taking a small number of sub 18 year olds who will mostly be applied during the daytime shifts. I'm not broadcasting this far and wide, but I have enough departments under my control where I can find a position suitable for everybody.

This has become less of an issue since I've recently decided that con-ops will shut down at 2:30am and the hotel will take over responsibility for patroling the area.

Candice got her position because of her extensive qualifications.
I can assume she acts old for her age, and historically we've had a few minors in leadership positions that have performed admirably.

Why? You want a job? :P

Yes, I was thinking about it, but I won't be 18 til a couple months after the con (like Candice, in fact.. our birthdays are a week apart ^^). Dunno what I'd be good for though. ^^;

It's entirely up to you my dear.

We need people for everything. If you give me some idea of what you like, I might be able to match a job to you. There's departments outside of my control that need people too.

The minimum age for staff is age 15. Obvioulsy we would prefer older, more experienced folks to run things, and we need staff in any and all positions. You are welcome to apply for anything we have.

A run-down of jobs would be cool. Well, I turn legal in December, and I've had experience with.. well, running an anime club. ^_^; I dunno. I was also in charge of the masquerade at Jrock Con til that sorta died. >_>
