Volunteer with Us!

Want to be a part of something special? We are a collaboration of Wizarding World fans passionate about making MuggleNet the best source of news and information on the web. We’re looking to recruit highly dedicated, hard-working fans to join the MuggleNet team.

Seven Reasons Why Volunteering with MuggleNet Is Awesome

1. You'll make lifelong friends.
It's okay, you can admit it to us. Maybe you don't have as many Harry Potter friends as you would like. What's a Harry Potter friend? Someone you can share your passion for Potter with. Someone you can become best friends with (most of us have made best friends through MuggleNet). When volunteering for us, you'll meet fellow staff members who love Potter just as much as you do, and it forms friendships you'll keep forever.

2. This stuff is great résumé material.
MuggleNet has made its fair share of contributions to that all-important piece of paper, from college admissions to work applications. What you do on MuggleNet will most certainly boost your résumé and benefit you in the future. Plus, trying to find out what House your potential boss is in makes for great interview discussion.

3. Your work will be seen by millions of people each year.
Want to feel the international power of Potter and Fantastic Beasts? Reach fans in China or interact with those in South Africa? With millions of Muggles per year visiting our site, your name and work will catch the eyes of countless people across the globe. We've heard that a few news outlets read our site as well.

4. Guaranteed protection from the Dark Lord.
Need we say more? If you're a Harry Potter fan, you know the dangers presented by Lord Voldemort and his followers. MuggleNet promises to shield you from such perils. If you, however, choose to wander into the realm of dark magic, we are not legally responsible for the outcome and refuse to post bail for your inevitable trip to Azkaban.

5. Cover events for MuggleNet in your area.
You never know when a Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts event will happen in your neck of the woods. From premieres to conventions, you can be the on-site source reporting live or recapping your experience for the millions of Potter fans around the world. These events are not only a lot of fun but great networking opportunities.

6. You can do work in your pajamas.
It doesn't get much better than rolling out of bed (or sometimes staying in it), grabbing your laptop, and logging on to the Web. You don't have to shower, brush your teeth, or comb your hair. If you really feel inclined to put on a suit and tie so that people think you're trading stocks or crunching numbers, we'll learn to live with it but mock you constantly.

7. Great opportunity for personal growth.
MuggleNet gives you the chance to grow and tap your endless pool of potential. Your input and knowledge is an essential contribution to the overall success of the site. Whether coding, creating graphics, or posting news is your primary responsibility, you're guaranteed to get a taste of it all. Oh, and you're allowed to make mistakes from time to time; we promise not to use the Cruciatus Curse.
