Writing at Operation Sports isn't a full time job, but it's not a volunteer position either. We're not even sure you'd want to call it a job even if it were a job.
When your subjects are sports and video games, we prefer to call it a passion. We are driven by sports, and we accept nothing less than the most passionate and knowledgeable people to join us.
Operation Sports currently has a monthly readership of over one million people -- and we continue to grow each and every month. We are looking for only the best and most passionate people to write here.
Generally speaking, we only accept applicants who are 18 years of age or older, but you can apply if you are younger -- just expect to have to impress us with your application.
We are a deadline driven organization, which means you have to be able to meet deadlines to be a writer here. We do understand that you are not a full-time writer, but we also expect you to not make this a volunteer position.
All writers positions are paid, just not enough to leave your day job -- unless you want to live in a cardboard box that is.
With that said, here are the current openings for writers, be sure to send all applications to email@example.com.
Please follow ALL directions. Read each opening carefully -- we are a detail oriented business. This means you should be able to read and follow instructions! Omitting anything will result in your application being deleted.
Please apply for one opening at a time!
