When applications are open, there is a link from gamesdonequick.com/profile. If you have other questions you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer applications typically are open at the same time as game submissions, and selections are typically announced at the same time as the games list (ie before registration to the event opens).
You receive a guaranteed badge so you can get into the event without paying a registration fee. If your work or school requires a community service form, or a proof of volunteering, you can request that from us as well for documentation. We are happy to provide it.
No, you still have to pay for your food and your hotel room, as well as any transportation. We only provide the guaranteed badge and waive the registration fee.
No. Just fill out the application. In all honesty, we get lots of resumes and very rarely ever look at them.
No. But you will never be selected again if you do not have a suitable reason for doing so. Keep in mind, if you skip on your shift, you're forcing another volunteer or staff member to pick up your slack.
Only if you turn 18 before the start of the event you are volunteering for. Due to the 24 hour nature of the event, we can't run the risk of child labor laws being violated.
We have a few off-site volunteering positions. For the most part, you cannot have these positions if you are at the event.
It goes to all of the on-site volunteer coordinators. Since it goes to all of us at once, it ensures that the appropriate volunteer coordinator sees your response, and can respond quickly and accurately.
That's fine! You can email us volunteer questions at email@example.com and we will forward your email to the correct person. If you don't get an answer within a week, poke us again.
Yes! We interchange a lot. If you don't like Muffins, she will pass you off to someone else, if you don't like your coordinator, chances are you will be assigned Muffins, but she will most likely try to mediate a solution between you and your coordinator first.
Volunteering is the best way to work towards a staff position at GDQ. However, volunteering is not a guaranteed path, and GDQ is typically not hiring for most positions. We favor those who are reliable, trustworthy, and hardworking. If you would like to inquire about jobs, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteer coordinators cannot assist you in job prospects.
