Current Staff Openings
Note: None of us here at Metal-Rules.com make any money from "working" for this site. That said, the below openings are not for paying positions, but require mature and reliable individuals who have some free time, a passion for heavy metal, and a desire to help with the forward advancement of Metal-Rules.com.
The site has been online since 1995 when it was started as a one man operation. Since then we have grown considerably with more staff writers and guest contributors from many countries around the world.
Staff Writing Positions
So you'd like to write for Metal-Rules.com? You see yourself with piles of free CD's, attending concerts for free, speaking with and even meeting some of your favorite metal icons. While this is all possible, we do not want to attract those that are all about the glory without the hard work required to obtain these perks. Getting free music means you have to properly review it in a timely fashion. Attending a concert for free means you'll be photographing the band and writing up a detailed review of the show. Meeting or speaking on the phone with metal's finest means you'll be recording and conducting an interview for our webzine.
Current writing positions available
Minister of Marketing and Propaganda
Metal-Rules.com is looking for one reliable and outgoing individual to help with marketing/sales.
Responsibilities: Your main task will be to find, contact, and secure advertisers/sponsors for our site. Secondary tasks will include: compiling a weekly or monthly newsletter, writing & distributing press releases to media outlets, and any other marketing functions we require.
Experience/Requirements: While no real work experience is required, it would be very helpful if you have knowledge of online marketing and advertising along with experience writing sales "pitch" letters. It will make things easier if you have knowledge of the metal industry and contacts, etc. As for the time required to handle this position, that is up to you entirely, as long as you are successful. The main portion of your work will be done via e-mail, so you'll need to be able to send, check and reply to e-mails daily.
If you have the drive and have a few hours every week to help out, drop us an e-mail and tell us about yourself!
Metal-Rules.com is looking transcriptionists for interviews.
Responsibilities: Like the title suggests...transcribing spoken word to proper English :). Recorded interviews will be made available for you to download in MP3 format.
Experience/Requirements: While no experience is required, patience is!! Typing up a 30 to 45+ minute pre-recorded phone conversation is not a task for someone who does "hunt and pack" typing. You'll have to be able to type fast and do so with proper spelling, punctuation, etc. Often our interviews are done with people who have an accent, some stronger than others, so you will need to be comfortable with understanding English spoken with an accent.
If you have a few hours every week to help out, drop us an e-mail!!
