Success! Selection Event Volunteer for the 2012 Olympics.

  • You may recall that I recently attended an interview for selection to be an interviewer of volunteers to run the 2012 Olympic Games at the Weymouth &  PortlandNational Sailing Academy (WPNSA), having originally volunteered last year.

    I am delighted to report that they have just emailed me to offer a place as an interviewer for the Games!  So if you have in turn volunteered to be a 2012 Olympic Games Maker and are invited to an interview at the WPNSA, there is a small chance I might be the one interviewing you!

    Good luck to all those who have volunteered!

    I got a yes! I think it was the result of picking up that penny up this morning….

      Congratulations Lauren, Your Olympic Volunteer journey starts here! I found being a SEV a highly rewarding experience.

      Best wishes

    Thanks for getting back to me 🙂 this was something I applied for through my university ( I am an event management student) so it was perfect career wise, and I could fit it around my current job.

    However, my uni told me I was successful, turns out we had to have an interview with the comitee before it was even set in stone.

    I’m glad you replied as I felt like I was totally alone in trying to find out what was going on.

    I really want this, I hope they don’t keep me waiting much longer!

      Lauren, It’s a pleasure and there are certainly roles that would fit your studies as well as being an SEV. Not sure what is going on with your university or what agreement they may have with LOCOG. I may be wrong (in light of any such agreements) but I’m led to understand the only people who can make any decision on volunteers is LOCOG themselves.

      Rest assured, you are not alone and their are many many people waiting to hear news, whether as an SEV or as a volunteer for the Games themselves. For the latter, offers are not even being made until later this year.

      I wish you all the luck, best wishes in your studies and hope you get what you want for the Games.

    I attended one of these interviews and have not heard back for over a week. One of my fellow students had a reply yesterday. I’ve sent an email, but as it is the bank holiday weekend, I guess I won’t have any joy.

    Am I right in thinking that no news is bad news? I am kind of a bit in limbo here and have no other way of finding out what’s going on 🙁

      Hi Lauren,

      I know it’s hard but I’m afraid you have to be patient with them. They have very few full time people looking after an army of volunteers! Give it until after the Easter Break and see what happens.

      The Best of Luck.

    Dear John,
    Congratulation to you.
    I’m also going to attend an interview for selection event volunteer programme very soon. Do you have any interview tip to advise me?

    Thank you very much,
    Best regards,

    Kate Ng,

      Hi Kate,
      The biggest tip I could give you is be yourself! Be passionate about the games and your motives for volunteering. Know a little something about the games. But above all, enjoy the experience. You will be surrounded by people all with the same passion and working toward a massive common goal. Feed from their energy as well.

      Best wishes and Good luck!
