Volunteer

Volunteering can give you a feel for different opportunities or allow you to get involved in ComSoc’s philanthropic initiatives. You can volunteer at a conference or join one of the Community Activities committees in local, national, and international initiatives. In addition, volunteering is a great way to prove to co-chairs that you have an interest in their executive if you decide to apply in the future.

Boasting over 50 committees, there is a position suited for almost everyone’s skills and interests. There will be multiple times throughout the year to apply for executive positions, starting with Frosh Hiring. Conference executives will hire a new set of members shorty after their event, while Internal Committees and Businesses will hire throughout the month of March.

Please contact the Human Resources Officer, Jordan Flanigan (jordan.flanigan@queensu.ca) if you have any hiring-related questions.
