I was looking through the application and I was wondering what exactly is the 'References' part for and who would you fill in there? Also if you've never staffed at a con before, is the suggestions on #9 from the FAQ all the staff listings a new person should consider or might there be other department we can try filling out a application for?

Assuming you meet all of the rest of the generic criteria you can apply for ANY position. Depending on your unique qualifications / experience / temperament you may be perfectly qualified for a more senior position inside of the organization however the interview/screening process can become much more intensive and demanding. The positions listed in the FAQ are going to be the "entry level" style position and as such will have the "lowest bar" for admission and are generally more open to newcomers.

I am interested in applying for a staff position but I'm not sure what I would be best suited for. Is it customary to apply for multiple positions? Or is there a screening process to decide an applicants best fit in the staff openings list that is based on what is on the application / resume?

Post Re: Staff Applications Are Now Open!
you can do it either way.

As a general Rule for some positions as we review and screen applicants if they dont seem to be a *good* fit we will recommend or *toss* an application to another division. YMMV and every case is different but i have seen it run both ways. It all depends on what your thinking about.

However if you are going to apply to multiple positions, please say so. It helps us and will actually spur on discussion internal if you are a really good candidate!

*Sigh* I know I've submitted at least two applications for tech ops in the past few months, but I haven't heard a response as of yet to either of them. Admittedly, I've been self-absorbed and involved with other pressing matters at a couple other conventions that have occurred in the interim (of note, Anime USA and NekoCon) so I have not had time to put full attention to any AB matters that may have been at hand. Essentially, this time of year through to March, though, I can now step back from those types of involvements. I am not asking for any explantions on any particular hold-ups in my own circumstance, but I also do realise the more limited time frame between the 2013 event and the one in 2014. Also, I want to be able to request time off work sooner rather than later if necessary...

Hi. Happy New Year to everyone. OK I applied about a couple months or so ago for the video department and we did communicate for a bit but I haven't heard anything for quite a while. Are the positions still open? If not I am willing to do tech work or any other areas where needed.

I was wondering when the 2015 Application would be open? I know you are likely in Post-mortem and aren't ready for the 2015 Con cycle just yet but I'd like to keep an eye out.

Right now we are in the middle of selecting our board for 2015. Once that is complete, we will be reevaluating our staffing needs and opening the application for returning staffers. Once the majority have had the opportunity to reapply, it will be open to the general public.

I expect that it will be going live sometime in the late summer/early fall. Last year, it was October, for the record.

We always make sure to have announcements here and on our social media, so keep an eye out there. Thank you for your interest in staffing Anime Boston.
