Springfield’s Steampunk Festival is looking for a coordinator

Springfield’s Vermont Steampunk Festival took a year off in 2018 while it worked to reorganize but as 2019 approaches, it looks as though the town is trying to get the ball rolling on another festival. Case in point, it’s hiring a coordinator.

According to a Facebook job listing, the position will be a stipend position rather than a volunteer one.

We are looking for someone who is very organized, can stay calm under pressure, loves coordinating events, who is considered a leader, who is social media savvy, comfortable speaking in front of people, comfortable with basic word and excel, and who has a positive attitude. You do NOT have to be into steampunk (although that would be fantastic!) to be able to coordinate the festival.

The full job ad can be found on the festival’s website,
