WoW Insider is LFM!


We're looking to expand our staff here at WoW Insider with new people and fresh perspectives. Getting paid to play isn't just a pipe dream -- though in this case you at least have to alt-tab out and write about your experiences. Think you might make a good addition to our team? Well then, read on for all the details!

We're looking people with:

  • A passion for World of Warcraft. You don't have to love everything Blizzard does, but you obviously need to have an interest in the game.
  • Solid writing ability. (Basic spelling and grammar required -- and forming words without any numbers in them a plus.)
  • Prolificacy! We'd like someone who can commit to writing on a regular (daily!) basis.
We also require that you:
  • Possess a computer and a reliable Internet connection. If your computer can play WoW, you should be able to blog with us.
  • Have the software and knowledge to create and manipulate photos and screenshots. (Primarily resizing, fancier stuff if you feel like it.)
  • Know (basic) blogger's HTML.
  • Are eligible to work wherever you're writing from.
  • Are reachable outside of Azeroth -- via e-mail, IM, Skype, phone, etc. (No, I am not creating a level one alt just to track you down and ask you questions.)
Still think you're right for the job? Well, here's how to apply.

Send an email including:

  • A subject line including your full name
  • Your city and state
  • Your email address
  • Your instant messenger address(es)
  • A cover letter explaining why you're the right person for the job, including your background in WoW, current characters, and current objectives in-game
  • Three sample posts about World of Warcraft, in the style of a typical WoW Insider post
  • Three links to posts on WoW Insider that you feel best exemplify the sort of content we want here
  • Three suggestions for how to improve WoW Insider
