    Howdy friends and neighbors ~

    At long last, the Mayor’s Office is hiring! :joy

    Many, many, many thanks to Ilverin, Alenya, Jarl and Martinis for your service on this team! Y’all have gone way above and beyond, and it has been a pleasure serving alongside you.

    I will now be taking applications for a new staff term. Term will run at least six months, nine months preferred. (Through the end of 2020.) Please read through the information below and feel free to ask me any questions via PM/email.

    About the Welcoming Committee Forum:

    There are a number of threads in the Welcoming Committee forum, each detailing a project. Anyone on the team can work on any of these projects at any time. We have a few set tasks, some brainstorming for future organization, and we are open to YOUR ideas! This team is the “first impression” for Visitors and Citizens, as well as the organizational center of the Mayor’s Office to keep our City running smoothly. We need a variety of gifts and skills to make this a success.

    Passionate about meeting and helping new people love our site? We have a place for you!
    Enjoy making sigs and avatars? We have a place for you!
    Organizing free weeks? We have a place for you!
    Want to make the City a fun and vibrant piece of TarValon? We have a place for you!
    ______________ ← your ideas go here? We have a place for you!
    Do you love spreadsheets?! We have a place for you!


    About the City Staff Specializations:


    All these positions are considered a guide towards overall team function, but you can fit in one category or all categories -- that is up to you. Our team will consist of at least five members, including: 2+ Greeters, 1 Scribe, and 2+ City Architects.

    The Greeters primary role is to -- greet! They will patrol the Introductions Forum and work with visitors, helping them get avatars, get enough posts, and become citizens. They will keep the team updated on who they’ve greeted, and let me know of any membership items that need follow-up.

    The Scribe will maintain a Google Drive spreadsheet of the active visitors and track their credentials toward becoming a citizen as they move through the process. (See? There really are spreadsheets! :lol ) This will involve verifying avatars, recording dates, and getting information from the Greeters and making sure it is organized. They will also help the Mayor organize documents or record information in other areas as they develop. This is great for a person who loves spreadsheets but perhaps is a little shy and doesn't really want to send multiple PMs a day.

    Finally, the City Architects! This part of the team is really in charge of special projects - i.e. getting Citizens organized for Free Weeks, keeping an eye and helping hand on the City forums, working on the Citizens’ Class, and whatever else we can dream up to help our Visitors, Citizens, and City be awesome.


    Requirements:
    • Be a full member of the site (i.e. must have attained the rank of Citizen or higher).

    • Have an email address you are willing to share with at least the mayor. Some of the projects may require you to have an email you are willing to share with everyone in the forum. If you uncomfortable using your primary email, creating a faux-email whose only use is for this forum is okay.

    • Be trainable - You don't have to know anything coming into this position; we can teach you everything you need to know. For some things, however, we use Google Drive, a set of Microsoft Office-esque free online programs, and your position and future projects may require you to use it.(Spreadsheet experience is preferred for the Scribe.)

    • Be enthusiastic, creative, and forward-thinking! I'm most excited for members of the committee who have ideas for how we can better involve new members -- no matter how big or small the idea is.
    To Apply:

    Please send me an email to mayor@tarvalon.net, saying you would like to apply to the Welcoming Committee. Please include your full site name and rank. If you have a preference, please state whether you are interested in being a Greeter, the Scribe, an Architect, or multiple specializations. If you have no preference, please mention that too.

    Feel free to tell me why you would be a good person for this position. You may describe initiatives you've done in the past, detail your skills, or elaborate on your vision.

    Applications due by: 8 March 2020


    Thanks in advance for your interest, I’m looking forward to hearing from YOU!
