If you’ve ever wanted to work on a website, this is your chance! Gain some writing experience you can add to your job résumé! Although these are strictly volunteer positions, we do occasionally offer perks for our best contributors, such as gift cards, and you can also request to join the review team for free games if you prove to be a good writer! If you’re interested in joining us, check out the job descriptions below, then send us an e-mail at staff@operationrainfall.com (staff null@null operationrainfall NULL.com?subject=Volunteer%20application).

News Writers

Do you spend all day browsing video game websites and forums looking for the latest news? Why not do that and do something productive while you’re at it?! News writers look for the latest video game news around the Internet and write up a quick news piece informing all our readers.

Requirements: News writers must have good writing ability and comprehension of the English language. News writers will need to write at minimum three relevant news items per week, which should take about an hour of your time. News writers will have access to our news tools and other press resources to help them find relevant niche video game news. When you apply, please tell us a little about yourself and tell us why you would be a good writer for oprainfall!

Authors

Have you ever wanted to write your own video game-related articles that thousands of people will read? Then you’ve come to the right place. Authors are encouraged to write editorials but may also write news pieces, as well. Editorials include but are not limited to opinion pieces, top-x lists, debates, and polls. Get creative and make a name for yourself!

Requirements: Strong writing ability and comprehension of the English language. If applying, please forward a sample of your writing for review. Anything will do—a short story, a blog post, even an old high-school or college essay. oprainfall authors are expected to write a minimum of two articles per week. All editorials must be approved by a senior editor.

Editors

We need editors most of all. Are you the type of person who just hates seeing typos and writing mistakes in articles? We hear you; we see it all the time on those other sites, and it drives us crazy! Why not help oprainfall avoid the same mistakes by volunteering as an editor?

Requirements: A college degree is preferred, but not strictly necessary. Must be 18 years or older. Anyone wanting to be an editor at oprainfall will need to show they have previous editing or writing experience in an educational or professional setting. Editors will need to edit and publish at minimum four articles per week, which should take about an hour of your time. Editors can write articles, as well, if they so choose but will not be required to do so. Please note that editors in training will be required to write news pieces for a short time until they are fully trained and so we can determine whether you are a competent writer.

Graphic Artists

Are you a graphic artist or designer who loves to share your art on the Internet and would love to have an audience who will see your work? Why not put your talents to use at oprainfall? We are looking for artists who can create custom images for articles or can create backgrounds for social media. Your images will be credited at the end of each article where they’re used.

Requirements: If applying, please forward some samples of your best work. We ask that you spend at least an hour each week making custom images our contributors request.

Reviewers

I bet you’d love to get free games, right? (Who wouldn’t?) Well, now you can! Simply apply for one of our writing positions (news writer, author, or editor), and if you prove yourself a capable writer, you can request to join our review team. We’re currently in need of reviewers, so as long as you can write well, it’s likely you’ll be approved for the review team quickly. Exciting!

Requirements: This position cannot be applied for. You must instead apply for another writing position and prove to be a capable writer first.

Thank you all for reading, and we look forward to working with you in the future! Apply by e-mailing us at staff@operationrainfall.com (staff null@null operationrainfall NULL.com?subject=Volunteer%20application).

DISCLAIMER: All positions are volunteer, non-paying positions. We make no promises of any compensation or incentives. All material made for oprainfall and used on the website becomes the property of oprainfall. Volunteers can be released at any time at the discretion of management.
