Chat Recap – Elf Jobs Update with Elf Sandy Claus

Elf Chat featured a visit from the head of the Department of Elf Resources, Elf Sandy Claus. Sandy just got back from the Elf Supervisor’s Meeting in Costa Rica, an event that figured a little in our chat about new elf jobs. There are several new jobs that Sandy told us about. Here is the chat transcript:

Elf MaxHello!
Elf Sandy ClausHi everyone!
Elf MaxHello! And welcome back!
Elf UlanHello!
Elf Sandy ClausOh it’s good to be back! But what a great week
Elf Sandy ClausHi Elf Ulan!
Elf MaxDid you stay the whole week?
Elf Sandy ClausYes, I returned yesterday, a little ahead of the others
Elf Sandy ClausSo much work to do!
Elf MaxOh I bet…you must be tired
Elf Sandy ClausActually, I’m good. Santa had us on an easy schedule. It was pretty relaxed.
Elf MaxSo did you get a lot of sun?
Elf Sandy ClausYes. I got fried to a crisp!
Elf MaxHahaha
Elf MaxHopefully that will heal soon.
Elf Sandy ClausIt is not too bad, actually. Totally worth it.
Elf MaxWell, Sandy, for our chat today, we really haven’t had a chance to talk about or plan this. How would you like to proceed?
Elf Sandy ClausWell, there are some new things to discuss. But maybe we should start with questions first?
Elf MaxOk, that’s fine. We can keep things casual.
Elf MaxWho has a question they would like to ask of Elf Sandy?
Elf Sandy ClausWhile we wait for that, I can answer a question I got in my email about the Birthday Coordinator job. The question was will there be more than one.
Elf Sandy ClausAnd the answer is yes, we will start with just two but will add as our birthday list grows.
Elf MaxOk. That sounds like a good plan.
Elf Sandy ClausMax, I have a question for you – how is our birthday portal coming along?
Elf MaxIt’s done.
Elf Sandy ClausOh wow!
Elf Sandy ClausThen we are definitely moving forward on that project this week. By next week at this time we will have two new Birthday Coordinators.
Elf MaxNice.
Elf MaxNo questions from you elves for Elf Sandy?
Elf UlanI do!
Elf Sandy ClausGo ahead, Elf Ulan!
Elf UlanThank you! About the new educator group
Elf Sandy ClausOk
Elf UlanI want to know about the details
Elf Sandy ClausOk. We want a group of educators to advise us. Mostly what we want are ideas for certain age groups of students
Elf Sandy ClausTowards the months of September through December we get a lot of younger elves
Elf Sandy ClausWe are looking to develop features that can be used in the classroom
Elf Sandy ClausWe get suggestions all the time over at SantaUpdate.com from teachers
Elf Sandy ClausBut they tend to come in at the last minute
Elf UlanOkay!
Elf Sandy ClausWhat we want is a good group of educators who can advise us all year long
Elf Sandy ClausAnd help us to help them.
Elf Sandy ClausWe have some teachers who want to track Santa as a class
Elf Sandy ClausThat has always been hard because school is out by the time Santa leaves the North Pole
Elf Sandy ClausSome of that will change this year with the things we learned at the Elf Supervisor meeting this week
Elf Sandy ClausBut we will still need to find ways for students in class rooms to learn about Santa and the North Pole
Elf Sandy ClausWe also want to find ways to reach out to those folks and let them know about the free resources we want to provide
Elf Sandy ClausSanta is a big fan of teachers!
Elf Sandy ClausSo this job is really a consultant type role. We want professionals – those who know that business to advise us
Elf UlanVery interesting!
Elf Crash MurphyThat’s a very cool thing, Elf Sandy!
Elf Sandy ClausYes, this is a very important project. I report directly to Santa on this thing.
Elf MaxSandy, I got the new Sector Lead job posted yesterday. I expected some questions but so far nothing. That’s a big deal, that job.
Elf Sandy ClausYes, it is a new job all together.
Elf Sandy ClausAnd a very big deal.
Elf Sandy ClausI don’t think elves have noticed it yet.
Elf MaxWell, I’m still not clear how it will work for sure
Elf Sandy ClausThe Elf Supervisors asked for this new position.
Elf Sandy ClausIt could be a very demanding job.
Elf Sandy ClausAs it says in the job description, it is kind of like an assistant Elf Supervisor role, in each sector
Elf MaxHow does this help the Elf Supervisor?
Elf Sandy ClausWell, each sector is actually quite large. This Sector Lead will help inform the Elf Supervisor in a private fashion of big things going on in the Sector
Elf MaxOk…like what “big things”?
Elf Sandy ClausNews. Weather. Natural disasters, etc.
Elf Sandy ClausThey will have news posting capabilities, we hope.
Elf MaxOh boy. How are we going to do that?
Elf Sandy ClausI don’t know.
Elf MaxThis sounds like a job for very experienced and mature elves.
Elf Sandy ClausYes.
Elf Sandy ClausWe have time to work this out. I think the target of getting this done is September, you know, to have elves in place
elf radarHello Elf Ulan
Elf Crash MurphyAre we going to find an elf like that in Sector 2?
elf radarHello Elf Ulan
Elf Sandy ClausGood question!
Elf UlanHello elf Radar!
Elf MaxWe also have the new Podcast Producer job that has recently posted
Elf Sandy ClausYes, also known as the Assistant to Elf Frank Myrrh position. That’s what we are calling it in ER
Elf Crash MurphyOh – don’t tell him that! His head will swell
Elf Sandy ClausHahaha. We’ll just keep that between us then.
Elf MaxThat is another one that will take a very mature elf.
Elf Sandy ClausYes, I agree.
Elf Sandy ClausI think the Social Ambassador jobs available now are very exciting.
Elf Crash MurphyThat’s why I’m here. I want to know about that
elf radarSorry guys, I was froze on this end and didn’t know the chat had started.
Elf MaxSorry to hear that Elf Radar
Elf UlanDid someone already apply for ER?
Elf Sandy ClausThe Social Ambassador jobs will require someone who is a self starter on social media
Elf Sandy ClausI haven’t had a chance yet to check email or new applications today. I’m a week behind
Elf Crash MurphyAre we going to be monitoring those social media sites all the time?
Elf Sandy ClausLoosely, yes. Elf Ivy will be over that.
Elf MaxWill Ivy be the one doing the interviews?
Elf Sandy ClausYes, this is her baby
Elf MaxDon’t we already have a few elves who run social channels?
Elf Sandy ClausI think so. I believe we’re going to try to work them in to this new arrangement if we can. But honestly anyone can run a channel out there tied to SantaTrackers.net and we can’t do a thing about it.
Elf Crash MurphyYeah, true
Elf Crash MurphyI’m kinda a social media junkie
Elf Sandy ClausMaybe you should apply, Crash!
Elf Crash MurphyAh…my hands are kind of full. I couldn’t do it justice
Elf MaxOur time is running short. Any last minute questions for Elf Sandy?
Elf Crash MurphyAre there more new jobs coming out?
Elf Sandy ClausYes. Tons.
Elf Sandy ClausWe are trying not to bombard the board with a ton of them.
Elf Sandy ClausBut we are expecting more sector jobs to come from the Elf Supervisors individually
Elf MaxLike what kind of jobs?
Elf Sandy ClausI don’t know
elf radarThese sound like great jobs with a lot of potential.
Elf Crash MurphyYeah, I was there for that conversation. Santa told the Elf Supervisors to get creative
Elf Sandy ClausYes, that’s right
Elf Crash MurphyThe Supes were really concerned with having help doing all they need to do
Elf Crash MurphySo Santa said to be aggressive and invent jobs. Elves are wanting more to do and want to help
Elf Sandy ClausYes. My job is to help them get those jobs defined. I’m expecting some calls and messages this week from Elf Supervisors
Elf MaxInteresting.
Elf UlanYeah, I d love to help him and y’all
Elf Sandy ClausI would also suggest – again – that if any elves out there have an idea for a job we want to hear about it
Elf Crash MurphyI’d like to be a cookie tester. I volunteer as tribute
Elf Sandy ClausHahaha – I bet you would!
Elf UlanMe too!
Elf MaxSandy, I hear a lot of rumblings about Christmas in July. How will those events affect jobs?
Elf Sandy ClausChristmas in July is going to shake things up, yes.
Elf Sandy ClausBut I honestly don’t know what to expect other than I think July through October will be very busy this year. And then it just goes absolutely crazy.
Elf Sandy ClausThe best jobs will be filled before September. And any elves applying coming November will just not have much to pick from.
Elf UlanElf Sandy, what should I prepare now for the job?
Elf MaxWhy is that? We get most of our elves back in November?
Elf Sandy ClausJust the way Santa wants it
Elf Sandy ClausElf Ulan – I will send you a message. But for right now, write down some of your ideas
Elf Sandy ClausThe Elf Educator group is going to take us some time to build. Teachers are BUSY people and finding those who have time to participate will be difficult
Elf MaxSandy, is there a similar group being formed for parents?
Elf Sandy ClausYes. But I’m not sure who is going to lead on that project. So far, no applications.
Elf MaxOk, very good. Informative chat today, thank you Elf Sandy!
Elf Crash MurphyYes, great job!
Elf Sandy ClausThanks for having me today!
Elf Sandy ClausBye everyone!
Elf Crash MurphyHave a great Saturday!
Elf MaxVery good. Thanks everyone!
