Well I have used html, I've designed in flash, have some Graphic design knowledge('Some'), I've been using lua since c# has started to make sense to me (well programming in general), I'm 22 so I don't have the age worry(almost done with college). But I don't think this is for me.

I'm not a Public Relation type of person.

I understand things are strapped but using the unpaid internship route - why didnt you just ask for middle/upper class kids with wealthy parents need apply only. IF you want work for free and truly wish to open yourselves up to gaining talent from all areas you should package up the position so it can be managed in spare time or weekends or even over the internet.

Only the priveleged may apply would have to be the caveat otherwise..

Bar the location preference so you can hunt them down and slay them if they mess up - I think I do all of the above (albeit badly and half arsed) for free anyway. But if I officialised it - it would count as a job therefore impacting tax etc zzzzzzzzzzzz.

You're wrong. I have almost no money, can't find a job etc. they gave a time span (and for good reason) and given some peoples situations it's actually quite acceptable. I know a lot of less than wealthy people who would jump at an opportunity like this if they had the proper skills. Anyways PR just isn't a part time position 1 way or another. They'll find someone, trust me, and I doubt it'll be some upper class kid, but even if it was why would that matter?

Also you don't have to pay taxes for unpaid positions.

For people how want a chance to get into the game industry, this is a great opportunity. If they put up more upaid internships(ones I can do) I would take it, as it is a foot in the door.

Me, I am poor. I am in college and I live at home, but I still would take an upaid internship if that means bettering my life in the long run.

It's true, i've seen several gaming companies take the intern approach on their active forum members, it's an awesome opportunity for those who have trained their skills/education doing what they enjoy doing to jump right in and not just get their foot in the door but end up in a good position instantly as it's something that interests them specifically as well as a future position. I just hope we got a few of those here.

Dude... The internship is very important within this industry... Everyone wants you to have previous experience, and here is said experience... That experience will help you secure a place in the industry in the future... It is an investment of sorts... No teacher can teach you what experience can.

Besides you would also get to work alongside a friendly and helpful team. It would be mutually beneficial.

Also you cant be taxed on nothing... whats 17% of nothing? oh wait... nothing...

I would love to be eligible, but I admit there are other better candidates out there....

I'm sorry you won't be able to apply, but I hope you can understand that we're not looking for free labor here.

We're asking for minimal hours with great flexibility from a home office. This internship won't get in the way of another summer job if you're low on cash. We're also not going to be having you taking inventory or doing other tedious, not-trade related tasks. After two weeks of mostly just playing the game to get a good understanding of all its aspects, the intern will be working on a variety of small projects involving social media marketing, SEO, and feature publication under the observation of the knowledgeable and helpful Department Heads and CEO. Regardless of whether or not the intern wishes to sign as an employee after its all over, we hope to leave him or her with valuable experience and improved skills to jumpstart a future career.

Most of our team worked for free for at least this long with some donating years of their time. In an ideal world, everyone would get paid and none of our devs would be holding second jobs, but we're essentially an independent studio - so that's just not possible. If you have any doubts, talk to any of our recently hired scripters who underwent similar internships and they all seem to love working with the Reverie World environment and Dawn of Fantasy.

I signed on for my internship with no expectation of getting hired, of course ideally I'd get a job working on the team and luckily enough I did after plenty of hard work. I'm thrilled I get to work on the game and get paid to do it - but I'd have been happy all the same to just get that year or so as an intern on my resume while working on a game I enjoy, I said as much to Kon several times. I just wanted to get my foot in the door, and enjoy my job. Working with these guys, and especially on this game has been a great deal of fun despite all the hard work I've put in.
