Elf Jobs Update

As a follow up to our elf job restructuring announcement of last week here are some new details for those sending in questions about how elf jobs will now work.

Elf Sandy of the Elf Resources Department will soon be posting for elf positions.

The first positions to be filled will be at the executive level: for example, my job as International Director of Santa Trackers, will be posted.

Executive level jobs include:
– Elf Supervisors
– News Director
– Santa’s Council
– Senior Elves
– Sector Leads

These positions will be posted and filled between February 1st and March 1st.

Beginning in March, other jobs will be posted. They will be the same or slightly adjusted versions of the jobs now posted at the Elf Jobs page.

ALL jobs will be filled by September 30th.

Any new elves recruited to and joining the Elf Community after September 30th will just be tracker elves for the upcoming season and ineligible for any other job until they open again on December 26th for the next year.

Here are some answers to common questions now coming in to me and to Elf Resources:

Q: Will my job badges change?
A: Not yet, and when or if they do, they will reflect the elf jobs you have had in the past. So your profile page that shows all your badges will reflect all of your experience as an elf – a kind of visual elf resume.

Q: Can I get the same elf job I had previously.
A: Yes, that’s going to be possible.

Q: Will I be able to have more than 1 elf job.
A: Yes, in some, but not all, circumstances.

Q: Will qualifications be changing for all elf jobs?
A: Maybe, but only just a little.

Q: Is it possible a new elf job would mean a transfer to the North Pole?
A: That’s always possible.

Q: Is it possible that I can’t get an elf job because of my record as an elf?
A: Yes, longevity as an elf matters. But what you DO as an elf matters more.

Q: Is it bad that I don’t get an elf job? Can I just stay a tracker elf?
A: No, it’s not bad at all. Take your time.

Q: Will Santa or someone else ASK me to apply for a certain elf job?
A: Yes, that might happen.

Q: Will Santa interview me?
A: It depends on the job, but yes, that’s possible.

Q: Will I have an elf supervisor?
A: Yes and no. Yes, as a tracker elf. Your sector will have a director who will remain your supervisor over tracking duties. Other elf jobs may or may not have a supervisor.

Q: If you, Elf Roger, have to re-apply to be International Director, does that mean you are NOT the International Director now?
A: Until we apply and get a new elf job we remain in our old roles.

If you have additional questions please feel free to ask them in the comments below.

Thank you, Elf Roger, for sharing and replying to my questions. ^^ I hope all other elves know about remaining in their old roles now. I wonder if the current Birthday Coordinator can still celebrate birthdays this month. If they don’t, do the elves have to celebrate their birthdays by themselves yearly, lol? I wish to work a job for Santa and the elves that I can make happy too. *^^*
