Jobs @ BlueAlien.org

We here at BlueAlien.org have been around quite a while and have outlived many of our competitors and 'sister sites' and the membership of our various writers/editors has always been somewhat exclusive... that is, until now. As we take a dive into new formats and business models we are doing a full-on open call for talented people with a passion for games, movies, and various other media. It is our hope here at BlueAlien.org that we can use this public call to place some talented people into positions we have wished we could fill for years.

While "job" is a funny term given than we cannot currently compensate any of our employees with cash I would like to re-iterate that we believe that the site is at the cusp of something much larger and while fiscal compensation may not be immediately in the future, I can honestly say I would love to see it become part of our long-term business plan. Currently compensation will be in the form of free products from top vendors in the gaming industry, job experience at a legitimate news organization (we have a Federal Tax ID number for anyone interested in interning with us also), as well as trips to various gaming conferences and press-related events worldwide.
