GosuGamers League of Legends editorial section is recruiting
Are you a League of Legends fan who wants to write about their favorite game? Apply to become a GosuGamers crew member and start building your eSports journey today.
GosuGamers is an eSports portal mostly specializing in DOTA, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Counter-Strike and more recently League of Legends and Overwatch. The website was founded in 2002, and in its fourteen year history has evolved into one of the premier outlets for eSports coverage, providing news, featured content, VODs, replays, player and team rankings, matchtickers and in-depth event coverage.
What will being part of the GosuCrew give you?
- Experience and exposure in eSports: GosuGamers is a great place to start your career and be published on a platform that reaches million of viewers worldwide.
- Contacts with players/team managers and eSports organizations: Build your connections within the industry.
- Be one step ahead of everyone else when it comes to knowing the breaking news in the scene.
- A chance to help your local scene grow: LoL has been around a long time and we are always keen to bring the spotlight to new areas and rising stars. If you’re passionate about your local scene, come and tell the world about it!
- Work with friendly, open-minded people with many years experience in the sector.
Additionally, we’re always happy to help our outstanding volunteers take the next steps along their personal esports path. We’ll write you a letter of recommendation to reflect the quality of your work, and many crew members have used this opportunity to move on and work for other eSports companies or non-eSports media.
What being part of GosuCrew means/requires?
If you only have the ability to put in a few hours per week to help out with content, we can aid you in your development as a content creator. For those with the time and talent to make a significant impact straight away, there is equally the chance to make a name for yourself in one of the fastest-growing media areas globally. While the majority of the GG.net crew members work on voluntary basis, the industry is growing rapidly and our site is the perfect place to begin your journey within it. You will be working with your crew leader closely to coordinate tasks, but most of the time you will set your own tempo, and have the freedom to discover just how far you can go.
Take initiative and assign tasks to yourself: we love people who don’t need to be babysat and ordered around. If you want to write an article about an event – or if you want to help with the ticker by taking care of match data, go for it!
Use Skype and crew forums to communicate with the crew: our team is online most of the time, busy not having lives at all…
What we’re looking for
The League of Legends section is looking for writers proficient in both English writing ability and passion for LoL eSports. Our section is growing fast, and with a passionate group of eSports zealots, we're primed to be a top presence in the pro LoL journalism scene.
Editorial staff are responsible for all text-based content on the site, ranging from news posts about tournaments, transfers, players, events and so forth to unique content, including interviews, guides, tournament previews, columns, player and team profiles and event recaps.
GosuGamers editorial team members need to be able to write fluent, entertaining copy in English and either be native English speakers or have an English Literature major. A true interest in journalism in the form of either a background in the field or a journalism degree represents an advantage. Working with a site of this size also means you have a chance to gain access to some of the biggest names in esports, something that can only add to your value as a content creator down the line.
When you apply please provide us with a CV or a portfolio and a piece you’ve written on any topic.
