Qualifications (carefully read instructions above)
-- EXAMPLE ANSWER FOR QUALIFICATIONS --Kitchen: I’m willing to work either all week or arrive early. I’ve worked as a prep cook and in the volunteer/work trade kitchens at several events, including Wintercount, the KOOK festival, and worked private catering events (see references). I love to jump into feeding everyone, and feel confident in any kitchen capacity (including doing lots of dishes!), including volunteer coordination – I offer mellow, clear people skills and a good sense of the human flow (Team Relations!).Set Up: I feel competent taking direction, happy to arrive early for the full setup shift. I am of medium strength, comfortable with lifting, squatting, building, etc. I am competent with hand tools (shovels, picks, etc) as well as power tools (the basics....drills, drivers, saws, etc).
