You could at least provide education experience and whatnot in a resume. We just like to see your background and where you are coming from. From our perspective, if you aren't willing to put together a resume for the job, we are most likely weeding out people who won't go the extra mile when they're on board anyways

OS = very lighthearted work atmosphere. Sounds like you just wouldn't fit.

The latter is all we pay attention to, Age won't necessarily DQ you. I started writing about Sports Video Games at 14/15....so if anyone on the net is going to understand what a younger person can do, it'd probably be me

Gotcha! I keep a resume ready to go at all times. I had to learn that the hard way.

Hey, congrats on the FSU degree. I also graduated from FSU with an English/Communications degree.

-Two short relevant writing samples (preferably 400 words or less)
Is there a certain preference for the category of these writing samples? For example, can it be a blog post, an article, a forum post, etc.
