Contact Information

Pro-tip: Be specific!

If you are applying to a specific department or two, tailor your answers to that department.

You want to leave a positive first impression, so write as much as you can. You want to convince them that they should reply, and get you onto staff.

Closing thoughts

Most staff members are required to put in roughly 20+ hours during the convention, plus extra time before the convention (as preparation).

FanimeCon Staff members are not paid. The spiffy "Staff" badge, the staff room rate, and the satisfaction of a job well done are the main rewards for all staffers.

If you aren't sure if you can make a full commitment to a staff position, consider being a volunteer for FanimeCon.

All staff members must be at least 16 years old at the start of the Convention. Some departments require their staffers to be 18+ or 21+. Other departments may have separate requirements, depending on what they do.

Thank you very much for your interest in FanimeCon 2023 and we hope to see you soon!
