UCI ESports Conference
Recruiting Volunteers for Esports Conference
October 10-11 (Various Shifts)
We need undergraduate students to help with the conference! Guiding our guests, helping at registration, and other jobs are not easy, but they are rewarding. Not only do students who volunteer get free access to the conference before and after their shifts, but they also receive lunch on both days, a volunteer t-shirt, and the opportunity to network with some of the most exciting professionals in competitive games. This would be an incredible opportunity for any students looking to pursue a career in games. Questions? Rtgardne@uci.edu
