newsbanner
For the very first time in Square Portal history, we’ve decided to hire new content creators. Square Portal has become one of the leading Square Enix news sites and community pages in less than two years, and received recognition and used as a source for the biggest gaming websites in the world such as IGN, GameSpot, Kotaku, Eurogamer and Destructoid, for example. This is why, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve our site and its content. Being innovative and risky actions are what we’re willing to continue doing in the future as well. This is why we’ve decided to hire new content creators, who may even be you!

We are looking for creative, passionate and open-minded people with knowledge of Square Enix games such as Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Dragon Quest, Thief and other. We don’t demand expertise of every series, but it would be great if you had decent knowledge of one series, at least. It’s highly recommended to follow game industry as a daily basis. We don’t demand 100% perfect knowledge of English as long as it meets our standards.

HOW DO I APPLY?

You can apply by filling the contact form below or by sending the same information to our email address. (squareportal@squareportal.net) Use title “Application”.

In your application: tell about yourself and attach an example of your work, which can be a news post, review, guide, preview, article, video or something else. Your example content must be fresh and not something what’s already on our site. We don’t demand any past experience, but it’s always useful to mention about it. We appreciate the most your uniqueness, passion and creativeness! All applications will be read, and we will be replying to them. The most promising ones will be interviewed by our editor-in chief. (chat)

This isn’t a paid job since Square Portal only funds its maintenance (url, servers etc.) with ads. All things are created and shared by passionated fans.

  1. Is it still to late to do this? Also, would you guys really bar those who write for another site? I help run a small music/video game site with some friends, but I’m looking to diversify my writing needs while still maintaining that site

    • You can apply any time you like, and it really depends for what sites you write for and how often. The main thing why we don’t want people to write for other sites at the same time, is that you won’t likely have enough time to work on this site. From years of experience I can say, it might be quite demanding, if you wanna do your job well.

  2. I used to run FFSpira and Spiras Destiny, i have also designed for FFInsider and various other sites back when the squex community was stronger ’02-07′, it was years ago before i finished uni etc. I’ve been considering getting back into it, possibly bringing said sites back. However, i may consider joining you guys as it’d be fun to ease back into it with a newer, established site! I have extensive design skills and coding also if that’s useful, ontop of news posting etc.

  3. Ok so his might sound clumsy but i forgot to mention my past work experience … how much of a problem will that be ?

  4. Hi there! I just want to know if there is a final date for submitting applications, and if so, when is this? Thank you in advance. :)

  5. I am a huge video game fan. I have no experience in writing articles or anything because I find it hard to get started. Most places require experience. Now I am familiar with Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, new found love for the Final Fantasy franchise with Final Fantasy 13 and the upcoming Final Fantasy 15. I play a variety of games because each game is a story in which we as players can not just read but be apart of. Now I was wondering would I have any chance of being accepted. I am a passionate gamer and would love to just start somewhere in the gaming industry. I believe Square Enix has some amazing storytelling and I wold love to be apart of it.

    • Yes, it’s possible to do these things online. We hope people could do something daily but our content is quite related to Square Enix’s plans. :)

  6. Hello! I am really interested in being an active member of your community. I would like to ask for how long will you be accepting new applications. Is it possible for me to apply before the end of June? Due to lack of time, it would be somehow hard for me to satisfy your requisitions, before July. Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Leon!

      I will be going through first applications this week and trying to reply to them. Since I’m working on other projects as well, I’m quite overbooked but I try to check out and reply to all attenders. It’s a pleasure to me as well get this quickly done. :)
