Hey there! So, I know there are a ton of you that like My Little Pony conventions. Well, would you like to help make one happen? Join the Everfree Northwest staff team today! Currently, there are a few key positions open that the convention is looking to fill. If you would like to just be general staff, and not one of the listed positions, applications will be open in a few months. Right now, there are just a few key members of the team that we still need. Email staff@everfreenw.com if you are interested or you would like more information about these specific openings. So, without further ado, the open positions!

 

 

 

Registration Lead:
Everfree Northwest is currently seeking to hire the leader of the Registration team. This is a very important job—after all, there wouldn’t be a convention without attendees! The Registration Lead will work with the IT department to create the best registration experience possible for attendees, both online and day-of the convention. They will need to develop a plan of action for taking care of registration at con, including requesting supplies and planning ways to improve the structure of lines and the way Registration is run as a whole if necessary. For those who love planning and organizing, this is a job for you!

Visual Arts Lead:
The Visual Arts Lead of Everfree Northwest will be responsible for planning and coordinating the arts and crafts room at the con, and perhaps a few other art related events. This will require prior planning and work throughout the year. Visual Arts is a sub-department of Events, and can turn to the Director of Events for advice or aid if necessary, although they will likely be equipped to handle the duties of the position on their own. This is a great position for someone who is very in tune to the fandom art scene, and loves every creative thing the fandom outputs.

Video Production Lead:
Do you have a passion for videography and video editing? Than this is the job for you! The Video Production Lead will work to create promotional videos advertising for the convention throughout the year. In addition, they will work alongside the Director of Events to work on any visuals that will be needed for the mane stage at the convention. These visuals will need to be created throughout the year, and the Video Production Lead will also be responsible for setting up and running them at con. Any other video production needs the convention has, the Video Production Lead will handle as well!

Answer Desk Manager:
One of the first people both attendees and staff will turn to at the convention, the Answer Desk Manager is sure to be a fast paced and busy job! The Answer Desk Manager will be in charge of answering questions and providing information to both attendees and staff, and must remain positive! Customer service skills are a must for this job! The Answer Desk Manager will also be in charge of their own staff team at the con. The Answer Desk will be a hub of information of all kinds, and the staff manning it will need to be as informed as possible about all details of the convention events and spaces. This is sure to be a fun and fast moving job!

 

 

 

FAQ!

Do I need to be experienced?

Nope! You just need a willingness to learn and be taught how to do the job you're volunteering for.

One important detailed overlooked...

 

WHERE?

 

It doesn't make sense signing up to volunteer at a con if you can't actually make it to said con. With the title 'Northwest', it could be assumed that it is in the Washington/Oregon area, but that isn't necessarily true.

 

For example, Lego's 'Great Western event' con is in western England.  Yet their southern event is in Australia.

Hey all! Everfree Northwest has now opened general applications! For those who didn't want to be in one of the higher up positions we were hiring for (although there are likely still some available for those who do), and prefer to be a general staff member, here is the link! Everfree Northwest is July 4-7, at the SeaTac Hilton in Seattle, Washington. For those who love pony, send in your application, or if you don't feel like staffing, buy your tickets today! It's cheaper the earlier you purchase! :D
