Call for PMX Staff
Pacific Media Expo is looking for a few more people to staff for 2013. No experience staffing conventions necessary, but hard work and dedication is a must.

Requirements:
  • Minimum age of 18 (16 with parental consent)
  • Must fulfill a minimum of 24 hours of work at the convention

Benefits:
  • Free attendance to the PMX convention
  • You will receive a staff badge with custom art of your choice (some restrictions may apply)
  • PMX staff T-shirt
  • Crash space for the 2-3 days of the convention
  • A small food stipend
  • One complimentary membership to PMX that you can give to a friend or relative
  • Participation in staff raffle prizes

"Is staffing for me?"

Staffing requires hard-work, dedication, teamwork and time. We don't try to work you like a dog, but like any job, you are expected to perform your tasks to the best of your abilities. A Department Head expects his/her staff to follow instructions and complete their assigned duties. Sometimes the work can be exhausting. You don't have to have the skills to perform your job, just the spirit to act on it.

Below are the few things that we look for in a staffer:
  • Willingness - Learning is a life experience. You may find that you enjoy something that you never thought you'd do. It may become a career choice.
  • Team Player - You must work well with others.
  • Time - You must be able to work on all days of the convention, and sometimes outside the convention days.
  • Discipline - You must be able to follow instructions from a Department Head and uphold your responsibilities.
  • Fun - You must be able to enjoy yourself.

"So how do I join the PMX Staff?"

There are a few ways to join our staff:

1. If you worked as a PMX All-Con or One-Day Volunteer in a previous year(s) and there was a particular department you liked, contact the Head of that department. If the Department Head remembers you, he/she can add you to his/her staff.

2. If a current or past PMX staffer, in good standing, can refer or recommend you, then have that staffer contact a Department Head for an interview.

3. If you have skills or experience in a particular field, then one of our departments can use you. PMX is constantly looking for staffers that have certain abilities in some of the following areas:

  • Tech/Video/Sound Equipment
  • Stage Equipment
  • Information/Attendee Services
  • Logistics
  • Live Programming
  • Video Programming
  • Cultural Programming
  • Interpreter
  • Security/Line Control
  • Press Relations
  • Newsletter/Reporter/Photographer
  • Concert Coordinator
  • Industry Liaison
  • Music Liaison
  • Cinema Liaison
  • Anime/Manga Liaison
  • Webmaster/Web Programmer

This list is non-exclusive. If you think you have certain skills that could benefit the convention in its endeavor to become the premiere convention for Asian Pop Cultures, then join our staff.

Staffing isn't all about work; it's also about having fun and enjoying the convention, about building new friendships and learning new things, and about building a community and promoting good will and Asian cultures to the world.

Are you up to the challenge? (Are you scared?) To contact PMX for staffing, send us an e-mail.
