APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON 14TH FEBRUARY, 2012.

THERE'S NOT ENOUGH STAFF?!

We’re currently looking for (in order of priority):

– Writer/s
– Editor/s
– Artist/s*

It is possible to apply for more than one of the above positions.

* More like graphic designers who compose banners, avatars, icons etc.

How do I apply?

Simple; email* us at theotakusblog@hotmail.com with the following details:

Your username:
Display name: (If different to username)
Position that you are applying for:
Reason: (State why you would like to join us; no word limit)
Experience: (Have you ever blogged before? Do you know how to use HTML?)

Writers/Editors will need to provide a sample post in order to demonstrate their skills. It doesn’t have to be long and can be about anything; pictures may also be included. Feel free to attach this on a word doc with the email.

Artists must include a sample of their creative work, preferably a banner of 940 x 198 pixels and in PSD format (layers must not be compressed). Any PG-rated theme is acceptable. Here’s some helpful guidelines for those are interested but aren’t too sure of how to use Photoshop.

More than one sample can be provided, but no more than three.

*Subject of email must be labeled as “TOB APPLICATION: (your username)

So I’ve sent the email… what now?

One of our staff will notify you over the next 72 hours that we’ve successfully received your application. The results, however, won’t be given until after the deadline so you’ll have to be patient until then :) If you do not receive a confirmation within the next 72 hours, please leave us a comment so that we can get back to you ASAP.


Other FAQ:

  • Would it be possible to apply for another position as well? Like a Writer, Artist or Admin?

If stated above, then yes. Otherwise we’re not too worried with positions that aren’t listed as “currently wanted”. However, we may reconsider if the occasion arises.

  • What if I’d like a job transfer? Say for example, from an Editor to something else?

Same as above.

  • Crap. I sent in the wrong details/I forgot to attach my sample?!

No worries. Email us again but with your correct details and sample. Make sure to inform us that you’ve done so otherwise we may be confused.

  • Oh no! It’s past the deadline and I’ve missed my chance?!

…Well, we can’t really do much about that. Sorry – you can still try, though your application will be put on hold till our next recruitment.


Thanks for reading and feel free to leave a comment if you have any more questions.
