Once Xbox One discs start popping into shiny new consoles, we’ll undoubtedly face an avalanche of information. Hopefully you’ll continue to visit Xbox One Daily as your go to source for everything Xbox One related. To make sure we’re doing the best job possible, covering all the news, bringing you everything from tips, tricks, and game glitches to full reviews and videos, we’re increasing the size of our team.
That’s right… we want YOU to be on our team.
The gaming community is filled with passionate, educated enthusiasts with loads of insight and knowledge to share. Think you got what it takes? Then consider this your invitation to apply as a Contributing Author on the Xbox One Daily team (we’re also looking for writers on PS4 Daily and Wii U Daily).
What is a Contributing Author?
The contributor position is an unpaid position. It provides a great opportunity to be published on a reputable news source. It’s a resume builder, opportunity to “get your name out there”, and allows you to engage in an open dialogue with a vibrant game-loving community.
What are the expectations of a Contributing Author?
Contributing Authors will be expected to publish a minimum of 1-3 articles each week. They’ll communicate closely with the editorial team via E-Mail, Skype, and other means, passing back and forth story ideas that could be either time sensitive or open ended. Maybe you already spend your time digging through gaming sites and social media and would love to bring the information to our readers with your own spin. Maybe you’ve always wanted to create videos, write tutorial articles, or compose full blown reviews of the newest games. We’re looking for a diverse set of contributors who can help take Xbox One Daily to the next level.

TAKE YOUR TIME
We’re looking for quality applicants, not how quickly you can show your interest/urgency. We’re expecting a large number of inquiries and will be unable to respond to every person. If we’re interested, expect to hear back from us in the coming days, at which point we’ll narrow down the field of candidates with some follow up questions.
Thanks and good luck!
