The moment hundreds of you have been waiting for!
Guardian emails are going out this week!
An announcement will be made when the emails go out. I'll mention it here and on Twitter.
When that announcement is made: Be sure to check your email thoroughly.
The email will come from a Rooster Teeth email address. Check your spam filters. Check all of those wonky gmail tags. If you do not receive an email by the end of the day emails go out, please contact me here on RT or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) Everyone who applied should be receiving an email.
If you were accepted and the link on the email does not work for you, contact me ASAP and I will fix that for you
Approximately 44% of the emails being sent this week will contain the dreaded "No thank you". I want to take this opportunity to talk about why applicants get a ...God, I hate calling it this...a rejection letter.
1. We do not hate you - Are you kidding? You volunteered to give your time, money, energy, blood, sweat, and tears to this show! We appreciate the passion and willingness to help! I urge you to not think otherwise. Thank you for applying. Seriously.
2. Lack of details - Many of you, sadly, gave us one sentence details about your skills and/or experience. There are half a dozen large scale shows ending with "Comic Con", so just listing "comic con experience" didn't really tell us what you worked. Sometimes, the convention worked list was impressive, but lacked any explanation of duties performed. Convention duties are not implied, guys. Every con varies in what they have their volunteers do. We need to know specifically what you have done so we know what you can bring to our team.
3. It all comes down to numbers - We received 1200 applications. We could not say "yes" to everyone.
If you have any more questions, feel free to message me here on RT.
If you know someone who has questions or they did not receive an email, point them in my direction!
Again, thank you. We thank each and every one of you for applying.
