PTO New Staff Search for March and April 2013

Members will notice that PTO has many staff positions. These include: Research Assistant, Moderator, Site Moderator, Super Moderator, and Administrator. By and large, PTO Moderators and Administrators share two things in common – they all began as Research Assistants and they are committed to serving the members of this community.

PTO is currently seeking to retain individuals who wish to be a part of our all-volunteer staff team. Specifically we are seeking those who wish to support PTO’s mission to provide information and support to the community it serves by participating in our Research Assistant (RA) program.

As a Research Assistant you will be required to help Moderators monitor assigned forums. Full instructions and training will be given once RA status in confirmed. We are a diverse community with a wide range of needs. We are looking for those that can make the time commitment; and have the ability to complete online training and log in a few times a week to contribute to the forum(s) they have been assigned. Additional projects may be assigned to further the needs and interests of PTO’s membership as well.

Research Assistants are an integral part of PTO’s day-to-day operations. To be part of this team we do expect a certain level of presence, commitment, attitude, decorum, and ability to support the membership. We are not as concerned with your level of existing knowledge about a subject as much as your ability to search and seek out the information and arrange it in such a way to benefit the membership. Overall, we will be looking at an individual’s past history at PTO and looking for members that are supportive in a non-judgmental way as Research Assistants represent PTO and must do so in a manner that is in keeping with our community purpose.

While all applicants will be considered thoughtfully, we have a special interest in those that are willing to support the growing needs of our regional (Country/State) forums as well as other forums that are currently underserved due to staffing constraints.

If you are ready, willing, and able to give back to a community that has served you, PTO would like to hear from you.

Note: To be considered for a PTO Research Assistant position, you must have been a member for at least six months and have a post count of at least 150. You will also need a computer or laptop as some staff functions are not compatible with cell phone applications.

We will be collecting applications from interested members over the next few weeks. If you are interested in joining our team as a Research Assistant and contributing to the overall resources of PTO then please contact us.

Please send a PM to PTO Liaison by clicking on the link at the bottom of this announcement or copy this into your browser: http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/pri...newpm&u=363659

Applications to PTO Liaison will be the only ones considered. Please do NOT PM any other Moderator or Administrator.

In your reply please include the following:

1) Why you would like to be a PTO Research Assistant and what you feel you have to offer to the role.

2) The top 5 Forums that you would be interested in supporting (we cannot guarantee that if you are selected you will get your first choice).

3) The typical amount of time per week that you are online at PTO.

4) The length of time your loved one has remaining on his/her prison sentence.

Please Note: Submitting an application PTO Liaison does not guarantee that you will be selected for a Research Assistant position. Please understand that it may not be possible to offer a position to everyone that applies. We want to be fair in awarding positions to the most qualified, active, and supportive members at PTO. We will however contact everyone that does apply. If you have applied in the past please apply again. Thanks in advance for your interest.

Are you unable to make the commitment yourself but want to help?
Maybe you know a member that would make a good Research Assistant.
Encourage them to apply or nominate them by contacting PTO Liaison today!
