Hello All,

The Intern Program has been designed to match potential staff members (the interns) with departments who need more people. The program will allow interns to “try out” a department during the convention and get a taste of what it is like to work on staff. On our side, this program will allow us gauge an Intern's abilities in an actual convention setting.

The Intern program is an extension of our current volunteering program and retain many of the core aspects. Interns still will receive a refund of their registration cost after 16 hrs of service and be entered in to the incentive program. However, unlike other volunteers, Interns will will work on scheduled shifts as dictated by the department they are placed in.

This program is intended to be the fast track to becoming a staff member. Department Heads are always more likely to hire someone the have met and worked with before over someone who sends the a PM'ed staff request. Please note: Promotion to staff is not guaranteed! It is ultimately the decision of the individual department's Head to hire new staff members.

Questions are welcome. Both the question and answer will be listed below. Answered posts will be deleted for organizational purposes.
