This prestigious program serves as an ongoing talent pipeline for CEMA. We choose our full-time staff from the volunteers that want to move into full-time positions within the CEMA family.
The primary responsibility of a CEMA Volunteer for the first six months of the program is to serve as a brand ambassador and provide professional services to paying guests and clients for all CEMA events, as well as CEMA staff. During this period, Volunteers assist with all aspects of the CEMA programs, projects, events, and subsidiaries. After six months, Volunteers become eligible to work utility positions around the office and in the studios, assist with managing audiences for live radio and television shows, and potentially deliver more in-depth event projects.
These more diverse positions provide a way for Volunteers to hone their skill sets and explore their strengths. Candidates are required to make their position as a CEMA Volunteer their top scheduling priority.
This is an opportunity to enter the real world of entertainment, learn it from the inside-out, and network with a wide variety of contributors on all levels. The Volunteer Program focuses on the business end of the company and frequently places talented Volunteers in entry-level administrative positions in the office. The program lasts between 8 and 12 months. Although the position is part-time, hours approach full time during peak seasons.
The CEMA Volunteer Program aims to provide talented individuals with the hands-on experience they need to be successful in the community service business. It is a stepping stone into a multitude of careers on the business end of the non profit sector as well as the entertainment industry.
