    Anyone here have experience with journalism?

    Right now, there's a job offer to work for a game magazine known as Gamereactor, don't know if any of you have heard about it since its mostly Scandinavian based but started branching off in recent years.

    I live in the city where they started off and they're now looking for a game reviewer and news reporter that'll be active on both their webpage and gamemag.

    I have 0 experience with journalism, although when i was like 11 i made a website and wrote some game reviews but it was prob shit.

    Could i get some pointers?

    If you have no experience then just sell yourself in the resume. Focus on your strengths that could help in that kind of workplace. Are you good with time management/deadlines, work well in team environment. Have excellent communication skills. Shit like that. And if you have previous jobs then skew those positions to try and relate them to the job your applying for.

    Pointers?
    I know you're very gaming oriented and furthermore you stay intact with recent game news, reviews, ect. Your best bet is to continue this, but before, just apply. Address your enthusiasm for gaming and staying up with recent gaming news.

    What game are you planning to write about?
    Also, try to write as many details as you can, and try to sound professional. Just look up some game reviews on the web and try to see how they do it, and get some pointers on how to set it up.
    Good luck!

    Mhm.
    Well, offcourse, talk about it being an open world zombie parkour game which is (I think) almost completely new. Tell more about it why it is so popular at the moment. Say why you think this is wether or not a style that can become something in future games. Also say something more about that you can make the story go how you would like it and so on.
    Good luck again.

    Good luck.

    Read those fucked up articles Dix posts and take notes on how they write fucked up news. Because with the way gaming's headed now, all you're gonna write for that article is fucked up stuff about gaming.
