Do you look up to this guy?
Do you want to join the AKF staff?
Do you want to associate yourself with someone who is not only wildly popular in Korea and Japan, but founder of AKF?
Among the changes going on, the first one we want to tackle is hiring new authors. However, this round of applications will differ from previous ones. Instead of just authors, we're looking to hire people who can help run the site.
Preferred candidates would meet any of the following:
- Experience writing for a blog/website
- Knows how to design
If you have no prior experience blogging, that's fine. Just like the other times, we require applicants to submit three (3) articles proving themselves to be a fit for AKF. We are no longer trying to "build up" authors anymore. Shinbi and I tried that in early 2012 and it was a disaster. So don't worry, we won't hire someone like Aurelie again, whom everyone thought was snorting cocaine while writing her posts.
Aside from authors, we're looking to find people to help us improve the site. I know that this site looks like it's from 2003 instead of 2013. I've read your complaints about how slow AKF loads for some of you, how outdated some things are, etc. We're looking to make improvements to the site.
Send applications to email@example.com. I'll be reviewing these applications along with Zaku and Shinbi, so the process will take longer than normal. Remember, we're always hiring, but for these hiring announcements, it's best to send your application within a month.
Note: If former authors wish to reapply, send me an email and we'll talk things over.
Zaku here. I see a lot of people posting in the comments saying how they would apply, but then proceed to list a myriad of reasons why they won't. JUST SACK UP AND APPLY GODDAMN IT. WE'LL BE THE JUDGE OF WHETHER OR NOT YOU'RE REALLY BAD. (Don't worry, we won't save your application and laugh at it later or something equally heinous. :D)
