For many video game fans out there, working for the greatest RPG developer in the world would be the awesomest, bestest, most cooleriffic job ever!  Unfortunately, Team Andromeda has long since dissolved (ha HA!), so Square Enix is fine too.  The interesting thing about Squenix right now is they have a position open for a native English speaker!  Japanese skills optional!

If you don't feel like checking it out, basic gist is:  computer literacy, 2-3 years game industry experience, and solid English skills with objectively good writing style.  All well and good, but a bit more interesting is how they ask you to demonstrate your writing ability:

Topic:
You are a character from a Square Enix game who has been magically teleported to Japan. Using the language of the position for which you are applying, write a short story about your adventures in this new land. The story must be 800-1000 words in Chicago Manual style.

* There are no topic or setting restrictions.
* We will not answer any questions regarding the assignment.

So there you go!  All those years of alternate universe fanfic writing haven't gone to waste!
