Join the Team!

Interested in working on content revolving around Dream Land and beyond the reaches of Planet Popstar? Kirby Informer is looking to expand its team by recruiting remote volunteers for a few different positions! Before you take a look at the roles and apply, allow us to provide you with everything you want to know by answering some questions.

Does Kirby Informer pay?

 

Kirby Informer does not offer paid roles — or rather, we do not as of right now. We currently have no source of stable revenue, but we are looking to change that in the future thanks to new affiliate opportunities (Amazon and PlayAsia) and our website expansion! Every giveaway and month the website has been active is paid entirely by the site's leading members. We created Kirby Informer out of pure passion and are working to secure its future. While we do put many hours into Kirby Informer, along with the rest of our crew, we must reiterate that this is not a full-time job you are applying for, however, it should be noted that other benefits come with joining the team (we will get to that in just a moment though).

 

One of our goals behind the scenes of Kirby Informer right now is to implement ads onto our website and future podcast. We would like to do so in a matter that is not disruptive for our audience — in other words, no massive advertising banners and pop-ups that will interfere with what you are reading or three-minute-long ads when you click on any video. As everyday readers, we understand wanting to create a seamless experience on our website and we are going to try our best to make that happen.

 

What will I be able to get from working with Kirby Informer?

 

Kirby Informer will offer you an outlet to make friends with other passionate Kirby fans and learn more about the intricacies of posting on social media, statistics, how search engine optimization [SEO] works, brand partnerships, public relations, outreach, video creation, and much more. If we can't offer you a salary at the moment, we want to at least offer you an education that will help advance your career. Like every great opportunity, we want to help teach you valuable skill sets.

 

Whether you just want to have fun writing and creating content with some fellow Kirby enthusiasts or are trying to find some work to put on your resumé, we promise that this is a worthwhile opportunity for all who are interested. Kirby Informer's staff all come from different lines of work. We want to not only be your friend, but a mentor or teacher.

 

Additionally, I would like to add that for applicants who are college students, depending on circumstances involving your university's rules regarding internships, we can help you file this opportunity for course credit. If you are interested in working with Kirby Informer for this reason, please be sure to include this detail in your application.

On a side note, the Kirby Informer team are all friends and we love sending each other Kirby gifts throughout the year! If you are on our team, you are bound to receive gifts in the future!

 

How often would I be working?

 

There is no set schedule or amount of hours you have to work. We are not requiring any of our volunteers to post a specific number of articles or work a specific number of hours every week — you will determine how much you would like to contribute. Once again, this job is for fans who are passionate about Kirby. Whether you are determined to write 20 news pieces within a single month or just four or five, we welcome you to apply!

Current roles we are looking to fill:

  • News Writer

    • Writes the latest Kirby news (games, products, anniversaries, birthdays, discoveries, etc.).​
       

  • Features Writer

    • Pitch and write pieces about all Kirby media (relevant, niche, and obscure topics are all welcomed).​
       

  • Opinions Writer

    • Pitch and write opinion pieces that contain personal thoughts on topics.​
       

  • Column Writer

    • Write and pitch weekly/monthly columns for the Kirby Informer website.​
       

  • In-Game Photographer

    • Take photos in Kirby, HAL Laboratory, and Nintendo titles for posts across social media and articles.
       

  • Product Photographer

    • Take photos of Kirby products for fun social posts, reviews, and showcases.​

How can I apply to Kirby Informer?

For those interested in applying for one of the available roles listed above, we ask that you please send us a description about yourself, your connection to the Kirby franchise, your social media pages, and any relevant writing, art, or photography samples — you do not have to be so formal when applying, but please do not act too casual as this is an application and a first impression! If you have a traditional resumé already and would like to send it in with a paragraph or two, please do! We want to get to know you from this process.

 

To apply to Kirby Informer, please send your application and the requested information listed above to the email address below. Due to the number of application requests, we ask that you please give us time to respond to your message. We will try to reach you as soon as possible, but we cannot guarantee an exact time frame. We can promise though that we will be going through a few applications every day!

Thank you and good luck!
