The Cape Radio Street Team
(effective January 1, 2010)
The Cape Radio is proud to announce The Cape Radio Street Team. If you’ve ever wanted to take a more active role in the Cape community this is your chance to pitch in and help. We are currently accepting applications from interested listeners who want to become part of the Street Team.
As we have been expanding we have realized that we need help. It is our intention to utilize the talents and energy of you, the Cape Radio listeners. If you think that you can help with any of the following then please consider applying
Creating event fliers
Recording voice clips for ads and bumpers
Promoting events in-game
Assisting with events
or any number of other things
The pay sucks, but the benefits to everyone are tremendous!
A few things to consider:
Since you will be representing The Cape as a member of the Street Team you will be expected to act responsibly at all times and treat staff, listeners, and indeed the entire Virtue community as if you were the only person from The Cape that they will ever meet. Many times the only impression of The Cape that a person will have is that of the first member that they meet. If your actions reflect poorly on The Cape they might never give us a second chance. We will be very strict with enforcing this
Each member of the Street Team is expected to remain active. As a member you choose what you are willing to help with and when you are available, but it benefits no one to have you join us and then never participate.
If you sign up to do something then we will assume that you will do it. If you find that you cannot meet a commitment it will be your responsibility to notify management as soon as possible.
Each event will have one person “in charge.” (usually this will be DJ Pyrria or DJ Pheonyx)
If you are working an event you will be reporting to and taking direction from this individual. They may in turn ask you to help a Cape staff member or even a representative from the organization hosting the event. This includes any planning sessions and rehearsals.
The Cape Radio Street Team FAQ
(this is not an all inclusive list so if it’s not covered here please ask)
What is the Cape Radio Street Team?
The Cape Radio Street Team is a community of listeners who work together to enhance the Cape Radio experience for everyone.
Can anyone join?
No. There is an application process and every prospective member is dealt with personally.
If I prove myself on the Street Team can I advance to being a DJ?
Working as a member of the Street Team is no guarantee that you will be selected to be an on-air DJ. The activities that you will perform as a member of the Street Team are common activities for all of the Cape Radio DJs so your performance as a member of the Street Team is an opportunity for our management to assess how you might perform these same duties in the future; however, this is only a portion of what it takes to be a successful DJ. The current selection process will remain unchanged.
Who is running the Street Team?
The director of the Street Team is currently Agent Crypto. As a member of the Street Team you will
be working closely with the DJs and staff of The Cape, but ultimately you will be reporting directly to the Street Team director.
How will I know what to do?
A: When you are assigned to a project the scope of your duties and your authority will be clearly communicated to you by the director. During the course of that project you will receive direction directly from whoever is coordinating that project. As with anything, if you aren’t sure that you fully understand please ask.
If the director is not around whom do I talk to?
Your first point of contact is the Events Coordinator. If the Events Coordinator is unavailable your
second point of contact is the Station Manager. If neither the Events Coordinator nor the Station
Manager are available and the need is pressing speak with any available member of the management team or a station DJ.
What do I do between projects?
Between projects you are a valued listener. If a DJ requests your assistance you are welcome to assist that DJ, but you are not required to. If you come up with a wonderful idea please pass it along to the director or Events Coordinator. Otherwise just relax and be yourself, but remember that as a member of the Street Team your actions do reflect on The Cape, for better or for worse, even when you’re not “on duty.”
I want to help out, but I don’t think I can work with (whomever). What do I do?
One of the primary aspects of being part of a team is working with people professionally who you might not care to associate with personally. We require that every member of the Street Team conduct themselves professionally with all of the staff and listeners regardless of personal feelings about that individual. That being said if you have a personal issue with any member of the staff that you have been unable to resolve yourself please discuss the issue with the Street Team director, Events Coordinator, or Station Manager. All we ask is that you at least make the attempt to resolve the situation yourself before escalating it to management.
