Join us as a conference assistant in 2019! CAA encourages students, emerging professionals, and others in the New York City area to apply, particularly those with strengths in hospitality and technology.
CAA employs assistants throughout the conference from Wednesday, February 13 to Saturday, February 16. Assistants provide essential support to ensure a successful conference: welcoming participants and attendees, helping answer questions and monitor activities, plus troubleshooting problems that may arise.
Deadline: January 13, 2018
Assistants ensure that session rooms and other venues are prepared prior to the start time, help participants, assist with AV, and communicate with on-site AV technicians as needed. Assistants also monitor session rooms, conference badge, and ticket adherence, record attendance numbers, and help prepare for the next session or event.
Assistants working in the registration area direct attendees to check-in areas, answer questions about conference, CAA membership, the CAA 2019 app, and support CAA staff.
Successful applicants will be friendly, communicative problem solvers who are comfortable in a customer service role, able to navigate crowds quickly as well as being patient and flexible in a busy environment.
Experience with projectors and both MAC and PC laptops is essential. Familiarity with New York City and the subway is preferred.
Assistants are paid $12 per hour and receive complimentary full-conference registration. Assistants are required to work a minimum of 20 hours (or a maximum of 32 hours) over the four days of the conference. Attendance at a one-hour (paid) training meeting Tuesday night, February 12, 2019, is required.
Candidates must be US citizens or permanent US residents and able to fill out a W-9 employment form.
