OCC is Hiring News Editors, Review Editors, and an Assistant

28 September 2014 - 11:30 AM

OverclockersClub is hiring once again, with both news editor and review editor positions available, as well as a personal assistant for Bosco. Each editor position features similar requirements, and are in fact fairly similar in the skills you will be using. The personal assistant is a little more involved and demanding.


News editors scour the Web for computer hardware news, find items relevant to OCC, and write an article about it. It is one of the more visible jobs here at OCC, since your writing and username are featured on the main page. Because of that, spelling and grammar must be spot on, as everyone will be able to see it.


Review editors also need to know their grammar and spelling, but that's because they are editing the reviews at OCC. They make sure the reviews do not have any errors or mistakes, and then correct them so the review can go live. It is more about making sure everything looks correct than rewriting elements; if a sentence or two doesn't look right, then you contact the reviewer for clarification.


The personal assistant is a little different, as this person will be helping Bosco out with various tasks on OCC. They will help out with contests, site edits, help grow OCC, and any other tasks Bosco may have. Due to the requirements and demands of this position, Bosco would like the assistant to be available at most times of the day (apologies to those who are both working and attending classes). Bosco's personal assistant will receive hardware in exchange for the position, as well as a letter of reference for any future jobs they wish.



If you are interested in these positions, then feel free to send a private message or email to myself for news editors, ClayMeow for review editors, and Bosco for the personal assistant. Good luck to all future applicants!

[Free] Dungeon Keeper at GOG

14 February 2014 - 10:04 AM

GOG.com is having a bit of a sale this weekend, with Dungeons & Dragons games at 80% off and various multiplayer games up to 90% off.


It's also giving away Dungeon Keeper for free, but you have to act before the weekend ends! So that gives everyone just a bit over 40 hours to pick up the classic title. There's a bit of a demand for the keys, so when you click on the "Get It Now" button, you may see a prompt saying you'll receive the key via email in a bit (less than a minute for me).

OCC Needs Reviewers

05 January 2014 - 11:23 AM

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!

OCC Needs News Editors

13 December 2013 - 06:46 PM

Alright folks, OCC is hiring once again. This time it's for News Editors, which involves (you guessed it) writing news that'll appear on the main page.


So, what does being a News Editor entail? Well, pretty much what I just said. You find interesting and relevant news items, summarize them in your own words, and then post them. We'd like to have a good amount on computer hardware, but pretty much any technology-related item is game.


We're looking for individuals who can post between three and five articles a day, so if that sounds like something you can do, feel free to apply. Grammar and proper spelling is a must, however, and there is a trial period where we see if you can meet our standards. If you can and successfully pass, then you'll be on your own.



Anyone interested in applying can send an email to myself at [email protected] or a PM. Then we'll take it from there and see what happens.
