According to this job ad, Square Enix is looking for someone to “edit and proofread in-game text and voice scripts for large-scale video game projects.”
Applicants should be proficient in the AP Style Guide and Chicago Manual of Style, apparently, and there’s a minimum of 2-3 years experience required.
In order to separate the wheat from the chaff, Square Enix wants to you to write a story in which “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.”
If this sounds like your cup of tea, go for it. What have you got to lose?
