i won't get it, but recently becoming unemployed has motivated me to try anyway. :D

I got through to 2nd round last time, but unfortunately I'm not old enough yet :( -Mike

guess i'll just have to be patient :-) don't worry, and enjoy your youth...it goes quick. i'm only 18, and it's flying.

Auslander, I bet it's you or ddp who gets the job ;)

Yeah interesting, but my knowledge of Movie backups and digital video leaves a lot to be desired. Oh well.

Surely not getting enough applicants if they need to remind us.. -Mike

or (but less likely) they've got sooo many applicants they're hoping that some god of a writer will just pop up so that they don't have to g through thousands of applications, lol. anyhoo, i haven't heard back yet. *fingers crossed*

If I wasn't such a newb when it comes to getting laundered money over the Internet, I'd gladly take the job. :) I'm just kidding. Man, if I wasn't already going to school, I would actually consider this. Oh well, hopefully somebody got this job. I'm looking forward to the new twist on the news (dRD needs a break:). Cha!

I want to try but can't; English is my second language. I've been learning over the past 5 years, but still, I'm not getting the hang of it when it comes to verb tense. I quess I'm just slow...or is it English is a hard language? Anyway, I may try out 5 years from now. ;) Hopefully...

Nah it's not you. I've been told by several Foriegn language teachers that English is the hardest second language to learn. I think Japanese is supposed to be quite difficult to learn as a second language as well. If you don't learn those second languages at an early age, they're rough.

loveya, try now as not all members' birth language is english! doggy_bot, why would i apply for something that i don't know about or have an interest in know. don't judge me with yourself as we are 2 totally different people as is everybody else. if auslander applies than he has just as much of a chance as anbody else qualified.

When I look there just to the southeast, I can still see the oak tree that we climbed and the great branch upon which we built our first tree house. From its great boughs we could clearly see our home to the north and behind us to the south we could make out the old sawmill stream precariously winding its way through the wood let that lined its uneven shore. Those were days of wonder and of bee stings and skinned knees. Long hazy days of summer that made time slow until each one seemed to last forever. The future then, lay shrouded in uncertainty as if carefully hidden from the view of children. And of others who in possessing the imagination to set their thoughts free still turned their eyes from it.

sophocles, the username you've chosen is more than fitting :D

I made it through to the second round of applicants along with mike and about 5 others :) But due to a change in work I am now completly un-able to put in the required hours. Which is a really big disapointment because writing for aD would be a dream come true. Maybe when my new business takes off and I am able to retire from security I will have the time for a writer position or a mod job, but until then I am forced to just "teach & learn". Good luck to all applicants.

has the second round for this time around been chosen yet? i'm curious as to how it's going, lol.

So the 2nd round has been picked? Or are you talking about the last time AD was hiring?

He means last time. -Mike

@ ddp A while back (when afterdawn was last hiring) you said that you would be great for the job yourself! Only problem was you didn't know alot about gaming.

203.1.2006 7:27

no i didn't! i don't even apply for a job if i'm not qualified to do unless that person thinks differently. what shows on my resume is what i actually did & not bs. this way i don't have to worry about failing a background check like what happened to a former co-worker.

215.1.2006 12:55

I applied back in November? I think and never heard anything more. Guess they didn't want me. :( might have been nice to receive a thank you or something.

227.1.2006 6:10

I'm sure there is a thankyou message when you submit your form. -Mike

231.3.2006 17:59

Should I assume the job has been filled, or did you guys change your mind?
