Work for!  The experience you can potentially get from here will serve you for the rest of your life in this business and industry!  And it is not like any other.  We are going to put you front and center with not only the biggest names in music, but also give you the opportunity to BE the trend-setter as you help discover new acts and bands, something that put us on the map nearly a decade ago!  We may even elevate you (pending staff levels) to a leadership position on our leadership team!

You will also be interviewing, reviewing and of course, write! No schleping behind a desk and grabbing coffee for us, which is obviously hard to do since is a pure online experience (unless you have invented a way to make and serve coffee over fiber optics or cable lines!)! 

You will get the chance to review albums before they come out, put your pulse on breaking music news, get a shot at interviewing and talking to some of the biggest names in music in person at concerts or over the phone and again, discover new music and promote them like you've never promoted them before!  This is an experience like no other!

Working for is a voluntary experience, but there is an expectation of consistent and regular contribution and we have been doing this now since 2002.   Also there is an expectation of professionalism on the job.
Staff Writers
The Staff Writers Division consists of writers who write reviews, features and conduct interviews for and are scattered all over the United States, Canada and The United Kingdom.

Applicants must be age 16 or over and reside in the US, UK or Canada, with candidates 18 and over given preference.  You must be 16 by September 1, 2014.  Please select the region of which your hometown is.  If you are a college student, please select the region of which your home state/country is, you will be given press ops around your college's area/state during the school year.  If you wish to use this experience as college credit, please let us know and send us pertinent info that can get that set up.

We are seeking between 4-12 staff writers to fill open spots in the staff writers division. Regular or semi-regular contribution is an expectation here. Staff writers are encouraged to "step up" to the plate, recommended and/or self-requesting features, album reviews and potential interview ops (pending permission and/or set-up) outside of regular e-mails of press ops offered.

All applicants are required to send two writing samples, preferably right after the submission of the main application. All writing samples must be e-mailed to our CEO/Chief Publisher. This is a MAJOR and required part of the screening. You may be asked followup questions by the CEO/Chief Publisher and/or Chief Editor. If you do not have writing samples ready at the time of applying, you may send them within 3 to 4 BUSINESS days of submitting your application or you must formally reapply.

Your two writing samples must be as followed: ONE must be an album review of any album released in the last SIX months. The review must have a byline/tagline/headline and your rating out of 5. The second writing sample can be either a feature article on an emerging/indie/unsigned artist or band or an opinion piece on an issue concerning the music industry!   Writing samples MUST be of an original nature. Please do not submit past works as writing samples if you have already done such material in the past!

Once again, if we have any followup questions, you will be notified and a time will be set up as mutually agreed upon. Skype is preferred in these follow-ups. A decision regarding your application will be given to you via e-mail attachment (a letter) within 14 business days and no earlier than 5 business days.
