South By Southwest (SXSW) Seeking Volunteers- Applications Online and two Volunteer Calls Starting Today

Sometimes it seems like the whole world comes to downtown Austin every March. Why are all of these celebrities, techies and musicians invading the city?

Check it out firsthand by volunteering at South by Southwest (SXSW) Music, Film and Interactive Conferences and Festivals! See what happens behind the scenes, earn a chance to see fascinating panels, catch an up-and- coming band, check out comedy acts, question an emerging filmmaker or rub elbows with your favorite internet idol. It's a great opportunity to network, socialize and most of all have fun!

SXSW Week, March 9 - 18, 2012, is offering a multitude of volunteer opportunities. Jobs range from festival production to conference activities including registration, information, trade show, technical support, and much more. Day and night positions are available during the conference. Volunteers must be able to work a minimum of 30 hours or 3 shifts during the event, depending on their crew type.

Applications are available online and crew shift selections will take place at the Volunteer Call on Saturday, January 21, 2012 between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. and Tuesday, January 24, 2012 between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center, Ballroom ABC on the First Floor.
