Wanna do some part-time on-site PR for a very cool Montreal indie game studio? Web stuff, shooting video, writing, social media? Lemme know.
UPDATE: Based some comments I got, I should explain some things.
This is a PR job. You must be able to spell my name correctly. (Someone did not; at his request I've deleted his comment.) You should be able to find out my email address. (Seriously. It should take less than 60 seconds.)
And then you send me your resume with a personable email explaining why you're the right person for the job. And, because you are SO GOOD, you already figured out which game company and which game. And for serious bonus points, your take on marketing the company. Because you want it that much.
For any job, you want to make sure that you create the best possible first impression. But a PR job, in particular, is about contacting strangers. You need to have a talent, or better, a skill, for contacting strangers. You need to know how to draw people into your story. For a PR job in particular, your self-presentation is
the test. Your initial approach should knock my socks off
. Otherwise the job will go to someone else who does.

Boo on-site :(
Totally interested if it wasn't a 14 hour drive each way for me.
Alex, I think this post might be among the top ten most useful things you've ever posted. I struggle all the time with applicants who openly ignore certain modest instructions and demonstrate very limited problem-solving skills. I love working in the entertainment industry, and nothing gives me more pleasure than finding and hiring great candidates, but I am often exhausted by the uphill battle to work through the onslaught of people who think attention to detail is dumb and unnecessary. Thank you for being another voice of reason in the wilderness
