First: the skills you learn while volunteering can translate directly into your resume.
Item: I negotiated pricing and terms with a national corporation. (You worked on the contract with our venue and hotel partners.)
Item: I led a team of 4 people on a marketing blitz that provided 10% of our operating budget. (You planned the schedule and led the folks who met with our dealers several times a month leading up to the convention. Bonus points if the dealers agreed to come to Nuke-Con again the next year.)
Item: I was responsible for the acquisition, inventory, and distribution of achievement awards for more than 100 people. (You were in charge of Nuke-Con’s Prize Vault).
Item: I planned and executed a social media marketing campaign that increased attendance by 25% in the first year. (You wrote and posted Nuke-Con items in various social media outlets.)
Second: the cost of your badge may be fully reimbursed to you, depending on how much time you spend on convention activities.
Third: the convention cannot run without its volunteers. You can be part of the team that carries Nuke-Con into the next 10 years.
