      Show off your knowledge as one of our new class guide writers!
      A new expansion is on the horizon and, in our quest to improve and perfect our guides, we are looking for new class writers to join our team. If you think you have what it takes, find out how to apply here!
      With World of Warcraft’s new expansion on the horizon and a period of relative calm for the next few months, we think it is the perfect opportunity to open up one or more WoW class guide writer positions (for PvE). 
      This is a paid position, with the amount earned by the writer being a share of the amount generated by the guides they write. More details about this will be available throughout the recruitment process, although we estimate that each writer will earn at least $500 per month per guide. 
      In order to be considered for the position, you will need to meet the following requirements:
      1. You should have a strong mastery of the English language, particularly in its written form.
      2. You should be playing World of Warcraft at a very high level, and have a very high degree of familiarity with at least one specialization (although ideally more than just one).
      3. You should be committed to playing World of Warcraft at a high level for the foreseeable future (roughly, at a minimum, for the first 6 months of Battle for Azeroth, though ideally for many years to come).
      To apply for the position, send us an e-mail at jobs@icy-veins.com. It is up to you to find the best way to express yourself over e-mail in order for your application to be compelling. There is currently no deadline for applying, but once we feel that we have had enough applications, we will announce a deadline. 
      Good luck and we look forward to reading your applications!
