COGconnected is a small and well-established video game industry site based on the west coast. We are looking for news copywriters with a passion for gaming, tech, comics, movies and all-out geek stuff. You know how to sniff out a good story, you know the market and the types of news that people want to read. You’re a passionate and driven go-getter who is willing to put in the time in the morning to get at the news while it’s hot.
This is an entry-level position that requires time and dedication in order to succeed. It is a paid position (albeit not that much we’ll admit) that should successful applicants succeed at, could allow transition onto our reviews and editorial team where you would have the chance to cover games in another way. COGconnected is a 24/7 operation that needs to ‘feed the beast’ as we so lovingly call it at all hours and news is the most vital piece of the puzzle.
COGconnected has strong relationships with all the major publishers and developers in the industry. We are able to access events like E3, PAX, Gamescom and the like with media level entry. If you’re looking to get a foot in the door to the industry we could help!
This position is perfect for university students looking to earn a few extra bucks in their spare time and anyone with a love of gaming. If interested please reply and we can discuss further, provide you with some examples of existing content on the site and have you submit a piece or two for our review. We look forward to hearing from you.
Applicants should be prepared to post 3 to 5 news posts per day, possess strong writing skills and have a firm grasp of written English. Please, as mentioned above, only driven and dedicated writers with a massive passion for gaming need apply. We are striving to be among the best in the industry and hope to recruit a team that is just as excited to be a part of it as we are.
