DotaCinema needs YOU! RECRUITING NOW!

DotaCinema is Recruiting a Full News Team!

DotaCinema, as the largest YouTube Channel for Dota 2 with over 300,000 subscribers, is expanding its very selective staff team to all loyal fans and watchers.  We plan to bring constant up-to-date competitive news as well as personal editorials on patches, the current meta-game, and much more original content rivaling our multiple YouTube series like Top 10, Fails, and Mythbusters.

Why Join The Team? – Benefits

  • Visibility
  • Entering the Professional Gaming World
  • Interaction with some of the biggest personalities in Dota 2
  • Resume Building
  • Personal Writing Experience

Every big gaming personality from Day[9] to our very own SUNSfan started off at the bottom and got to where they are today with thousands of fans and admirers through hard work and opportunities like this (And lots of Coke, just for you Reaves). Even DotaCinema began as DC|Neil running montages and small Dota 2 videos until he was found and sponsored by Youtube.

By joining the DotaCinema Staff as a writer and editor, you will have a jump on a lot of the guys that have reached the pinnacle of success in Dota 2 because of the hundreds of thousands of people that are fans of DotaCinema.

Those hundreds and thousands of people will see your work, and it may lead to you interviewing some of the top competitive personalities as well as casters and other gaming names. Not to mention, you’ll be improving your journalism skills and have the right to say that you’ve written for a website seen by thousands of people, a feat I’ve used on my own resume, creating it as a selling point for an interview to gain a paid internship at the United Nations HQ in New York.

So, yes, people actually care because journalism is journalism no matter on what subject and shows a person’s work ethic, ability, and dedication to something they care deeply about.

    Responses sent! Congratulations for those of you joining the team! And this is only one chance of many, so don't be discouraged if you didn't make it in during this recruitment. We had to be extremely selective and regretted not being able to accept all of those with fantastic applications. The community turnout was amazing and we're still left baffled by all of your support.

    Please keep it coming and have faith that we'll be giving you many chances to join the DC Staff Community to further Dota 2.

    We apologize for the delay in responding to the applicants. We're trying very hard to make sure we give everyone a fair chance to get the 15, very limited positions, for news staff. We'll have the emails out by tomorrow and will be sending them out to both accepted and declined applicants.

    And remember, if you aren't accepted in this round of recruiting, we still have your applications and have a lot of people we plan to contact if we decide to increase our staff quota or need more help. Don't despair if you're not accepted, we had to pick 15 people out of over 250 applications.
