DREAM JOB ALERT: Play Games All Day and Earn Money as the First When in Manila Gamer!

UPDATE: THEY’RE HIRED!!! Meet out new gamers here!!!

You read that right! We’re looking for someone with a love for games to be our first When in Manila gamer!

If you want to play games all day from the comforts of your home and make money while doing so, this is it.

This is the dream job you’ve been waiting for!

If you love playing games, discovering new games, reviewing new games, sharing gaming insights, and just kicking ass in games, in general, we want you.

If you have editing skills, talking skills, and fighting skills, apply now and literally eat, sleep, play, repeat (edit a little). Plus, you’ll get to tell your mom, “kaka computer ko yan”.

We don’t have a specific age requirement, so you can be a fresh grad or someone older who’s sick of their 9-to-5-plus-commuting-time-and-sometimes-overtime job. You don’t need to be a professional gamer, either, because we believe we can turn you into one in time anyway. Ideally, you should have your own consoles and equipment, though we aren’t too picky about which kinds of games that you play… as long as you love to play.

Other musts include: a gaming-til-I-drop attitude, the ability to hook people with witty banter (English, Taglish, or pure Filipino is fine), and creative juices to come up with your own fun videos. Of course, you will also need to edit your own videos at home, so the discipline to take a break from gaming to make videos is also a must.
