POSITIONS AVAILABLE: See the Join Our Staff page for more information. Some available positions are during the event (ConSuite, Ops, Program Ops) while others are involved more in planning and communicating (Communications, Track Heads). Some positions are great for those who like to work directly with people (Ops, Track Heads) and others are suited for those who prefer less social interaction while they work (Logistics, ConSuite)
REQUIRED SKILLS: Enthusiasm to work as a team to make the Penguicon a successful event, willingness to be resourceful and proactive.
DESIRED EXPERIENCE: For most positions, you will learn from your team mates. Attending a previous Penguicon is helpful but not necessary. One member of the ConCom started as a staff member 3 years ago and now has run a department for 2 years. Another ConCom member used the experience she gained through her volunteer work with Penguicon to successfully change careers.
BENEFITS: New friends, new skills, make a fun event happen, chance to take on greater responsibility, discounted membership, and custom staff swag during Penguicon.
HOW TO APPLY: Following the August ConCom meeting, the 2018 department heads/members of ConCom will host a job fair where you can learn more about open positions and enter a drawing to win prizes – including a 2018 membership!
