Write for GAMINGtruth

To join the GAMINGtruth crew

GAMINGtruth is growing bigger every day and that is great for us and all of our fans. However, this also means that our work load is growing every day as well. So those of you with aspirations of being a journalist in the fun and hectic world of the video games industry, this may be your chance to benefit from being a writer for GAMINGtruth.com!

It’s Not Always Fun and Games Think you have what it takes to be a writer for the GAMINGtruth crew? We won’t lie, but we will repeat: it isn’t all fun and games. Being a writer for a gaming enthusiast website means a lot of fun, but also work. There is gaming news to report, deadlines to uphold, and embargo dates to honor. It takes dedication, time, and often, willpower to sit and write for a gaming website. Not everyone has what it takes to be a game journalist, but if you’re not scared of the challenge, continue reading.

What We Are Looking For

We need those who are up-to-date on the games industry and are avid gamers themselves. We are looking for the select elite who live and breathe videogames and the videogame industry, command a solid grasp of the English language, have some basic computer and social media skills, and of course, take pride in what they do. To be a writer for us you must be at least 18 years old. We expect quality writing and commitment to being a reliable editor for the site. At GAMINGtruth, we pride ourselves in our work. We are looking for people who don’t just re-post something that was already written. We are reaching out to those who love gaming as much as we do and wish to provide the best and most accurate news, previews, and reviews for our many readers.

Some experience would be recommended, but if you’re a decent writer that fills the requirements there shouldn’t be a problem bringing you aboard.

Payment

GAMINGtruth is a volunteer website, which means we won’t pay you for the work. You will, however, be paid in something that could be more important: experience working in and around the games industry. GAMINGtruth works with many of the top publishers and developers to get access to behind-the-scenes gaming previews and events. We also go to and cover major events such as E3, PAX and more. If you meet requirements and show a level of commitment to the site, you may find yourself going to some of these events and meet some of the top game developers in the business. Plus you would get your chance to get your name out in the open to job seekers looking for talented and hard working people.

Open Positions

Editor:
A person who writes news articles or editorials about games or the games industry. Can either be a weekday or weekend editor (or both if you prefer). Typically we would ask for 1-3 posts a day from this position, depending on the amount of news available.

Contributor:
The contributor has the same job as an editor, only a tad smaller. Like the editor, this can be either a weekday or weekend position. However, a contributor only needs to post once per day and there are some limitations to the position. A contributor doesn’t have access to review game copies nor is able to attend gaming events. But this position does offer a chance for growth and a promotion to editor if wanted.

Community Manager:
The person in charge of making first contact with companies and keeping in touch with those we already work with. The community manager will also be in charge of updating the community with news ind information via social media services such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Raptr, Digg, Google+ and more. Some experience or education in public relations is required.

Preferred Experience:

  • Sports Games – If you know sports games
  • Social Games – If you have experience with social or family games
  • PC Games – If you game on the computer and have knowledge of MMOs and Steam
  • Editorial Writer – If you like writing game industry-related editorial pieces
  •  
    NOTE: Preferred experience is not a requirement to apply for a position. If you have any of the aforementioned knowledge please mention it in the email that it is the position you are applying for, thank you.

    Be patient, we will reply to every application sent.
