We're looking to add a couple new writers for the upcoming season
W are looking to add a couple Bruins diehards to our team. A few disclaimers to mention first. We are not looking for occasional writers. We want obsessed diehards who will write daily. By daily we mean every day. We want people who read the newswire and follow the who's who on twitter and can post breaking news when it happens. We want people that can post recaps and write opinion pieces.
So to some of the disclaimers, we probably won't add you to the team (or keep you) if you rarely write and when you do it's vanilla and bland. I mean lame humor is worse that no humor (If you haven't been told by many people that you're funny, then you're probably not funny), but we do like writers that are entertaining. So again please only apply for this position if you're committed to writing daily.
Some things that we are looking for in writers besides just prompt daily content and humor are original segments and content. Are you a stat geek? Please apply. I much prefer seeing posts that back up why a player is good with stats, instead of just saying he's good. People that have youtube skills and can make video mixes are another bonus. We love awesome mixes. Great photoshop skills would be another plus. You don't have to have all these skills, but I just wanted to stress we're not simply looking for the norm. We like being unique.
If you feel like you'd be a good fit for Bruins Life, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Basically if you've read this whole piece that's a good first start. Trust me some people will apply and won't have even bothered to read the post. In your email, please provide your name and a short bio on yourself. If you're a hot chick feel free to include a pic. (If you were offended by that, you probably won't be a good fit). Also please include how often you would be able to write and if you would be able to post recaps (a maximum of 15 minutes after a Bruins game). Include any skills you have and a sample of your writing. If you can write up a sample piece now that would be preferred over something old. Also please be committed to sticking around throughout the season. If you're a daily commenter on the site, let us know. We love to promote from within for lack of a better term.
I know this column was long, but if you think you might be a good fit please email me and apply. Really nothing to lose. Just be committed to writing daily. As in Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That definition of daily.
