Call for 2019 Career Center Greeters

A Different Way to Help at the SAA Career Center!

The SAA Career Center was established to offer career advice, counseling, and a chance to mock interview as a way for members to advance their careers and volunteers to give back to the community.  Find out more about the Career Center here: https://www2.archivists.org/groups/career-development-subcommittee/annual-meeting-career-center-2019

We need your help to continue to make the Career Center a success! Last year, we recruited for a new type of volunteer: Career Center Greeters! This year we want to continue to help people navigate the Career Center by recruiting Greeters!

What Does It Take to Be a Greeter?

We are just looking for an hour of your time to do the following:

  • Welcome people who walk into the Career Center;
  • Tell them about the services offered, and how to sign up;
  • Answer questions (or direct them accordingly) that are posed by visitors;
  • Smile, and maybe make a new friend or two!

We will send out a Greeter orientation email to all volunteers prior to the start of SAA.

During this year's SAA Annual Meeting in Austin, TX, the Career Center is open as follows:

  • Saturday, August 3: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm
  • Sunday, August 4: 8:30 am – 10:00 am; 10:30 am - 5:30 pm
  • Monday, August 5: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm

Interested?
