Darn. I guess my blog/other experience isn't enough for the Editor-in-Chief...=(
Never any entry level positions or anything even close anywhere nowadays.If you didn't have the chance of doing an internship in your industry of choice, you're done for, doomed to never have any chance at having a career.
/sighs............ what I'd give to be qualified enough to try this.
Every single job that i have found requires at least three to five years experience. I have no experience, but can never get hired to get any experience in the first place its really a bizarre concept.
Why not get into general journalism first and then specialize into gaming journalism after building up a portfolio of articles?
Editor in chief isn't a 'promote from within' opportunity? Or maybe just looking for additional options? Either way, a little surprising.
Chances are, if you let the higher ups decide who you hire, you're going to get a schooled and graduated individual instead of an industry loving, real experience, game loving employee. Passion, imagination and personality should be the ONLY prereqs for a gaming job. Dang you corporate America. <soapbox out>
a good way to try this is work Experiece through a training course you can be given a proper job at the end of it if you seem you would be a good employee
is this good enough for Passion for video games Strong enthusiasm for gaming and deep knowledge of the gaming industry after coming out of the 30 day free trial i taught a wow player that had been on for 4 yrs and still stuck in Helfire how to get to lvl 80 and then 85 when cata came out also showing them how to get exp achieves gear up get rare mounts aswell as other things i can do this even faster and with others like the pugs in trade chat
That's not really knowledge of the gaming industry. Do you know who ZAM are, who Fony/DevoLore are (without looking it up)? If you can't name those, you have no idea.
yes i do know who ZAM are, who Fony/DevoLore are ive worked on pcs along time some on the gaming side however mostly on the repair side and i have most of whats wanted all im missing is i have the experience 6-8 yrs which is required maybe next time
