SEGA Nerds

We want you to join SEGA Nerds!

Greetings, my fellow SEGA Nerds! I just wanted to let you know that we’re growing here at SEGA Nerds, and we want you to join us in our never-ending mission of world dominance. Well, actually, we’re not really about all that; we just like to write stuff about SEGA – the best video game company humans and wizards ever joined forces to create.

Like every badass sports team out there, we like to churn our roster and bring in new blood every so often. It gives us a fresh perspective and allows us to create more variety of content for our wonderful readers.

Before we get to the positions we’re looking to fill, I want to be clear that we’re not just looking for the greatest writers out there or the most hardcore SEGA fanatics. Instead, we want knowledgeable SEGA Nerds who can effectively communicate their impartial views to our community.

GUIELINES

 

 

News writer

The ideal candidate is someone who stays up to date on every little piece of news surrounding SEGA and has the time and knowledge to take that information and turn it into an informative news story.

More than anything, a news writer needs to be dependable and have time to commit to sniffing out the news. If you can speak and read Japanese, that’s a huge plus!

If you’re interested in applying for our news writer position, please write a sample news article about a current SEGA topic that’s anywhere from 300-400 words.

Also, tell us a little about yourself, why you want to join the SEGA Nerds team, your educational/professional experience and how much time you’ll be able to dedicate to the site per week.

Please email your application to seganerds@gmail.com with the subject “SEGA Nerds news writer application.”

Features writer

Our feature writers are responsible for creating engaging, thought-provoking features at SEGA Nerds that help give the site its unique identity and voice in the community.

If you don’t have quite the time commitment but enjoy writing retrospectives, editorials and other fun articles, the features writer position may be perfect for you.

We have several old feature columns we’d like to bring back, but we’re interested in any ideas you may have, too.

If you’re interested in applying for our features writer position, please think of an original feature column you could contribute to SEGA Nerds on a weekly or bi-monthly basis and write a sample article. The word count is up to you, but should be at least 500 words.

Also, tell us a little about yourself, why you want to join the SEGA Nerds team, your educational/professional experience and how much time you’ll be able to dedicate to the site per week.

Please email your application to seganerds@gmail.com with the subject “SEGA Nerds features writer application.”

Reviews writer

Our goal is to review every new SEGA/Atlus release there as soon as it becomes available to give our readers our opinion on whether it’s worth their purchase.

However, we’re not just interested in the new stuff. Our diabolical plans to take over the world include reviewing EVERY game SEGA has released across all its retro consoles and post-Dreamcast.

Instead of writing every little piece about a game or breaking it down between graphics, sound, gameplay, etc., we prefer our reviews to be more conversational. Think about the things you’d tell your best friend about a game that you just played and whether you think they should play it too.

If you’re interested in applying for our reviews writer position, please submit a written review on Shining Force: The Legacy of the Great Intention on the SEGA Genesis.The review should be between 900-1,200 words and be in the SEGA Nerds’ style.

Also, tell us a little about yourself, why you want to join the SEGA Nerds team, your educational/professional experience and how much time you’ll be able to dedicate to the site per week. If you’re a fan of Atlus and are knowledgeable about all their great series, that’s a huge plus!

Please email your application to seganerds@gmail.com with the subject “SEGA Nerds reviews writer application.”

Like the other positions, tell us a little about yourself, why you want to join the SEGA Nerds team, your educational/professional experience and how much time you’ll be able to dedicate to the site per week.

Community manager

We have a great following on our social media accounts, but want to continue to see them grow. If you have social media experience and knowledge in managing a community, we’d love to have you on board.

This position will include managing our forums and social media accounts. If you’re interested in this position, tell us what experience you have in social media, your ideas on how we can grow our brand and how much time you can dedicate daily to managing our community.

Our designer will be responsible for managing the SEGA Nerds redesign and keeping the site running in tip-top shape. In addition, he or she will also oversee our site expansion going forward.
