OCC is hiring once more, and this time it is for Reviewers!

 

The position is pretty self-explanatory as to what exactly you'll be doing. We do have some requirements for you, however, and they are as follows:

  • Must be in the United States
  • Must possess either an Intel Haswell or AMD FX Vishera system
  • At least a 23", 1920x1080 monitor. Three is nice, but not required

If you fit the bill for those, feel free to send an email to Bosco with your application. He'll take it from there over what you'll be doing. There is a time requirement for being a reviewer, as some products can be pretty in-depth.

 

Best of luck to all who apply!


Intel Core i5 4690K - ASUS Z97-A - EVGA GTX 770 2GB
Mushkin Ridgeback 16GB DDR3-2133 - Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD - Seagate 750GB + 1.5TB - WD 1TB - Cooler Master SPH 1050W
ASUS Xonar Xense + Sennheiser PC-350 Xense Edition + Sennheiser HD-280 Pro + HD-555 - Sapphire Vapor-X CPU Cooler - Cooler Master HAF XM

You may also want to add that if you're reviewing for another website you won't be qualified it's one of the main things that's holding me back.


Really wish I could experience an SSD but of course my bank tells me that I can not.

What site do you review for?

It's not that well known but still has a nice amount of views yearly I can pm you it if you'd like.

Any of our reviewers can attest to the time commitment needed to do a review. Attention to detail, decent camera skills, a current system, ability to follow direction and a format, decent grammar, the ability to tear down your system to swap components as often as weekly. There are more but I'll leave it at that.

............the ability to tear down your system to swap components as often as weekly......

 

That is something to consider. Having a spare computer or laptop is well worth it because of the inconvenience but you do get new stuff in your hands before the general public :) so it's not a bad trade off.

Which is why I'm glad I bought the Air 540. :P
