Want a job in the local gaming industry?

1 min read


So I was browsing a local job site yesterday for purely entertainment purposes (promise boss) and I stumbled across this job offer on Pnet.co.za for a Public Relations Manager in the gaming industry.

Apparently one of our local gaming companies requires a new (or extra) PR manager and if you have ever wanted to get into the marketing side of gaming then this may be the perfect position for you.

They are offering to pay you up to R27k per month if you have

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to maintain physical stamina and proper mental attitude whilst working under pressure
  • A neat well-groomed professional appearance
  • Ability to adapt to varied working conditions
  • Ability to work overtime, outside normal operating hours
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills
  • Good organizational ability
  • Self confidence and assertiveness
  • Creative flare and initiative
  • Professionalism and integrity

You may also need some skills in dealing with pushy websites and magazines demanding special attention and refusing to post your boring news but I guess you can learn that sort of thing as you go.

However the best part of the job advert for me is that this new employee will also be required to “Manage the crisis management process of the company” which is always the most entertaining part of the industry.

It’s normally the part where you as a PR company wander over to Lazygamer during lunch and then spit your coffee all over the keyboard while thinking “What the hell are those idiots thinking posting that”

I love those days so much…

Anyway so if you are interested click here and maybe don’t tell them we sent you until you have the job.

Or if you are more interested in getting into the writing side of things feel free to send me some examples of your work and while this job ain’t going to be paying R27k (or anything right now) it will get you free games and all the babes.

    uhmm…i dont want to be the ‘drol’ in the proverbial drinking water, but i wonder if this job isn’t for the Gaming industry, meaning, the gambling type…because it indicates…

    Category: Hotel / Catering / Hospitality / Leisure

    …so I think it would be a cool job but I have been down this road…the requiter does not want you to know anything about the company until you actually get the job.

    Purposefully ignored as I normally do when applying for positions. I have been hired before on PDI only jobs

    …of course you’ll get hired, you’re part of the BROWN paper bag tribe, as your avatar clearly states.
