TV and Radio Pledge Drives
Phone Agents: Connect with the community and get to know our listeners as they call in to pledge their support. If you are a people-person and are able to enter a caller’s information into the computer while talking with them on the phone, then this is the job for you! If you are new to answering pledge phones, or simply would like a refresher, arrive at your shift 10 minutes early and you can be (re)trained to use our simple software program prior to taking the phones.
Bookkeeper: The bookkeeper is responsible for printing out the pledges, and then sorting them into batches for our membership department to review. This slower-paced job is best for those who would like to participate in the pledge drives but are less comfortable with rapid data entry or talking on the phone with strangers, and those who prefer to work at their own speed. Training for this job takes just a few minutes.
Producer’s Assistants: Producer’s Assistants work closely with the Producer, in a separate area from the other pledge volunteers. This position requires the ability to assimilate data (how many people have pledged, how much have they pledged, from what areas of town, etc.) for immediate relay to the producer. This critical job can be fast-paced at times, but is generally slow. Feel free to bring a book for your shift!
Training for this position will take place on an individual basis. The individual performing this job provides critical information to the producer and contributes to the on-air content of the pledge drive, and for these reasons the Producer’s Assistant must be trained prior to the pledge drive.
