Receive rewarding experience in the field of Marketing by providing administrative and clerical support, including assisting with essential database maintenance, contacting potential and current XPN volunteers, keeping essential supplies stocked and maintained for WXPN's frequent Welcome Events, and help with the designing and maintenance of a student-volunteer tracking system. You'll have the chance to assist with weekly Free at Noon concerts, as well as the annual non-commercial music convention, Non-Comm.
