Zelda Dungeon has a large staff of talented people who create and maintain
everything from detailed guides, Zelda-related news and announcements to videos
and our forums. We have a good team. There are a few more staff we have on our
wish list, however, and those positions are listed below. If you would like to
work at Zelda Dungeon, but don’t fill one of those roles, you can still send in
an application and we will check it out.
|News Article Coordinator
Our general news correspondents. This position will require you to search the internet for various Zelda news stories or interesting articles. These interesting articles and news bits will be posted at Zelda Dungeon, along with a short analysis and synthesis which tries to engage the userbase.
We are looking for someone who has the ambition and expertise to help create
in-depth guides for side quests, trading sequences, items, enemies, collectables
(Pieces of Heart), etc. Someone skilled in image work is preferred, since a lot
of our guides have maps, official art, etc, which would be helpful for this
position to be able to do that on your own and not have to wait on us to aid
|Video Content Specialist
We are looking for somebody who can help create quality video based content for Zelda Dungeon. This includes Video Walkthroughs, Boss Guides, Pieces of Heart Locations, and other guide related videos.
However, we are also looking for people that are video savvy and can work alongside the staff on various video projects such as putting together elaborate discussion or theory videos.
If you are interested in video walkthrough material, you should have extensive knowledge and ability of the game that you would like to cover.
The staff of Zelda Dungeon use Skype, a free, third party instant messenger program that excels at voice communication, which we use to chat vocally and work on some projects as a team. If we wish to review your application further, you will need to download it so that we can schedule an interview.
We do not pay our staff
Zelda Dungeon is just a fan site and we cannot pay people to work here. Although
it is just volunteer work, in some cases hardware and/or software can be
provided to you to help increase productivity.
Content written for Zelda Dungeon belongs to the site
If you decide to leave Zelda Dungeon, you may keep anything that you’ve written,
but it will also remain a part of Zelda Dungeon.
We want people who are committed
Zelda Dungeon has gone through several different staff members in the past.
Please, only submit an application if you are absolutely dedicated to working
for the site. We are only looking for the best here at Zelda Dungeon.
|-||Each position has its own direct requirements which are listed in their job description.|
|-||For any content position, website experience is highly recommended.|
|-||Time! You must be able to devote several hours a week for work on site content. If it is too low on your list of priorities, you will inevitably lose interest and we will lose a staff member, which we always want to avoid.|
|-||Proper grammar and spelling are necessary for anyone applying to write content with text.|
|-||A microphone is not required, but highly recommended, as voice staff chats occur frequently.|
|-||Must have Skype to communicate with the staff.|
Still interested? =)
You can send an e-mail to us at [email protected]. In the e-mail please give us the following information:
|-||Age (there is no age requirement).|
|-||Skype/AIM/MSN/Yahoo/ICQ screen name.|
|-||Primary e-mail address.|
|-||Any past website or guide writing experience?|
|-||Position you’re applying for?|
|-||Particular Zelda game you want to do content for?|
|-||A detailed description of what you’d like to contribute to Zelda Dungeon.|
|-||Do you have any HTML, CSS, Image Editing programs, and experience using them?|
|-||Anything else you may want to add.|
So, what does a finished application look like?
|Bob: A Crappy Application|
Position Applying For: content contributer
Zelda Games Owned: i play the zeldas bunches so i no alot
Anything Else You’d Like To Add: not really
This application… doesn’t tell us anything…! A job application is NOT a
survey or an e-mail quiz you send out to all your friends with misspelled words
and no punctuation; it’s the first impression the employer (or webmaster in this
case) will see of you, so some thought put into it is important. This "bulleted
list" is to get your thoughts flowing and give you an idea of basic information
to tell us. Ideally, we want MUCH more info.
|Bob: An Awesome Application|
Name: Bob Sample

Position Applying For: Secrets/Cheats/Glitch Guide Writer (LttP
primarily) – I know that position isn’t in your list, I just made it up
Zelda Games Owned: A Link To The Past, Link’s Awakening DX, Minish Cap,
Past Experience: Don’t really have any… I’m good at math, if that helps
Anything Else You’d Like To Add:
I love to totally pick apart my games and find all the glitches and stuff in
them. I don’t really know much about making websites or any of that, but I’ve
always been interested in writing a guide or making a secrets or cheats guide
and going into crazy amounts of detail. I see you guys don’t really do some of
the more in depth secrets sections and stuff though. I love those in depth
guides about glitches and easter eggs in games…
Anyway, if I can’t do that, I’d still be willing to work on a walkthrough or
guide for one of the games I own. I can get emulators to take screenshots
probably for some of the older games if that’d help too. I’d like to work on
Link To The Past (rather than the others) if possible.
I do want to say though, I’m in school and am on the soccer team. The season’s
about to begin and we have to practice a lot, so I don’t know how much time I
can devote to the site… Some weeks, we’ll be on the road for games too, so I
obviously can’t do any site stuff when that happens…
Thanks for considering me and I look forward to hearing back from you guys!
This is, what we would consider, an EXCELLENT application! He’s polite,
to the point and has a realistic view of what it means to work at a website. It
gives us a good grasp of what kind of stuff this guy wants to do and what
he’s capable of. He also explains his main hobby (soccer), mentioning that
he can’t always be helping out. We totally understand that (we have lives too)
and it’s encouraging when the applicant shows us their limitations as well as
While our site may not be geared towards secrets, cheats or glitch guides, that
does NOT mean we can’t use this guy! He shows much promise, which we would never
have seen if he’d only sent the other application instead!
Remember, when applying, the thing we want you to show us is what YOU
would like to do at the site. There’s always going to be “mundane” grunt
work to do, but if you have a personal project that you WANT to accomplish,
you’ll be much more motivated and will make a better guide in the end! We would
MUCH RATHER you make a better guide and be happy than give you chores and tasks
that make you frustrated or bored because it’s not what you’re interested in.
The important thing is to have fun
The Application Process
We get applications on a regular basis – sometimes they’re infrequent, other
times we get bombarded with them. Either way, we handle it the same way: we wait
for them to build up, then the staff talks about all of them at once.
