Application Writing Guide What are we looking for? Your application is supposed to show us that you have the skillset needed to take on a staff role. We like applications that have unique flair and personality and those that clearly use their experiences to indicate why they are the right fit for the staff team. Have a well-presented application Yes, the presentation does matter. The first thing we see when we open an application is how it is presented. There are a few things to mention about how you can properly present your application: Avoid using excessive amounts of color in your application. We prefer the use of black font as it is easier to read. Try not to overuse bold text, we prefer bolding only the questions as again it makes it easier to read. Make sure you check your application for spelling errors. We understand that English isn't everyone's first language but please try your best. Explain any statements you make and how they relate to the role you are applying for. It’s important to understand that the reader has to learn about you only from what you put in your application. Whenever you make a statement like “I am this..” , “I did this..”, ensure you follow it with an explanation as to why that is important for us to know. Give some examples to show that you have developed certain skills, explain why your experiences demonstrate you are right for a staff role. Make your application unique to you Your application is supposed to be a reflection of who you are. We know that you all have skills, experiences and personality traits that make you unique and we want to see those reflected in your application. Be 100% honest in your application We cannot stress how important it is to be fully honest in your application. If you’re applying for staff and you are clearly passionate about the server, don’t focus so much on trying to say the right thing. Instead, focus on your passion for being a staff member and that will show your potential.
