Volunteer Helpers are very important to Ustream. The Ustream community relies on volunteers to help users navigate around the Ustream website, troubleshoot their system for use with Ustream, and answer miscellaneous questions they may have about Ustream.
Providing online support for Ustream requires a higher skill set than just being able to broadcast, watch streams, or chat on Ustream. Applicants are selected as Official Volunteers based upon their experience, ability to meet the key requirements, willingness to work with others, and ability to assist other users.
The key requirements to be an Official Volunteer are:
At least 18 years of age;
Able to effectively use Ustream and the Windows or Mac operating system;
Able to look up or recall, create and convey step-by-step procedures on the fly;
Able to express written instructions in clear, expressive, and friendly way;
Have strong online communication skills, following generally accepted nettiquette;
Have genuine active listening skills;
Able to follow instructions and rules;
Possess high proficiency in grammar usage, spelling, and punctuation;
Are courteous and unflappable;
Ability to multi-task;
Have technical troubleshooting skills and the ability to explain technical problems to others for diagnosis and solution;
Have effective Internet searching skills;
Ability to meet expectations of regular, predictable attendance, including some nights and weekends;
Ability to work well with others in a cooperative environment where teamwork and constant communication is essential;
Demonstrated ability to follow through on commitments;
A commitment to continuous learning and motivation to improve skills in all areas of support;
Ability to act as a positive role model by being mature, professional and patient in all situations.
