Airport - "Know It All" Vols. Needed.....

Airport - "Know It All" Vols. Needed.....

I have just been appointed the Lead of a new function at the Airport - The office of Know-It-All.

Last year, I worked the Airport gate and since there was no where else for folks to obtain any information regarding: friends, free airplane rides, and other happenings at the airport, the gate was the obvious place where folks gravitated to have their questions answered.

This year, there will be a special air-conditioned office (i have been told) to house Know-It-All volunteers who can point folks in the correct or incorrect direction -- as the situation may require.

At this time, volunteer shifts will be overlapping for six hours each from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and all amenities that one would expect or desire will be provided.

On the job training and a detailed Cheat Sheet will provided to answer the most common questions ask or lacking an answer, directions to the person who will know the answer will be provided. As usual, clothing or lack there of is optional.

If my experience in 2014 is any indication of 2015, I anticipate for this will be a fun volunteer experience and one that will provide an opportunity to meet just about every genre of burner and provide a real service to the lost, semi-lost and confused souls.

If you are interested in filling one or more of the time slots, indicate Airport on your Volunteer profile when you fill out the form in your Burner Profile (click here for link).

Or, send me an e-mail and I will tell you where to go. :-)

Best,

Can one amend an already-filed volunteer questionnaire?

Are any particular skills or certifications needed for this job or other airport-related jobs?

No particular training is required. Cheat Sheet to answer questions and training will be provided.

Cheerful, tactful and helpful attitude will be of great value when answering dumb questions from the Sparkle Ponies. Riding the ponies and leading by leash might be allowed --

Costumes and clothing optional (if you still look good naked)......

Ratty,

I don't look good naked anymore. They make me wear costumes. :wink:

I am way to hot in my new costumes, so they have to keep me cooled off.

It is all your fault........
