DM Recruitment

Post by Liareth » Fri Jul 01, 2016 12:15 pm

Recruiment Status: DM recruitment is open as of 27/05/2017.

Some of you might have noticed that it's about time for a new round for DM interviews! We're changing how the process works.

Shifts

We want to ensure consistent regular coverage. As such, we have decided to eliminate the DM shift system because of several problems with it:

- Some shifts would be full of exceptional candidates, so some good ones would be overlooked.
- Other shifts resulted in a lack of good candidates.
- Candidates were recruited solely on the basis of their performance during a short interview which resulted in some otherwise good candidates being dismissed.
- The shift system in general led to a short-term surge in activity which usually tapered off into a few months of complete inactivity.

We will now be regularly recruiting DMs when appropriate based on a number of factors such as current DM activity and quality of the candidates.

How do I become a DM?

When the DM interviews are announced, please send a PM to DM Noxt and the Active Admins group stating your interest in becoming a DM. You can provide as little or as much information as you like with your PM -- whatever you think is appropriate. We will then get back in touch with you.

Be sure to mock them relentlessly for any accidental server pauses or saves!

I'm happy to announce two additions to the DM team, one new and one returning DM. DM Chiliad and DM Pindrop have been brought on to serve as part of the DM team. Be sure to give them a warm welcome and sharpen your pitchforks.

We will be conducting a set of DM interviews once more to fill positions on the DM team. Recent applicants that made it to stage two of the interviews last time are not eligible to be interviewed this time.

Those looking to apply to become a DM are required to send an application to myself (DM Spyre) and the Active Admin team via the forums. Please do not include the Active DM team. You can provide as little or as much information as you like with your PM, whatever you feel is appropriate. We will get back to you with an answer regardless.

First round applications have a set deadline of 17/01/2018. Anything received after this date will not be considered.

After the first round of applications are reviewed and an answer is received, the second round date for interviews will be posted.

Hello everyone,

Arelith is once more looking to recruit more DMs to fill additional seats on the team. Presently, the server is looking to add another three seats. The objective of this hire is to fill in spaces for absent time zones to ensure that a DM presence can occur on the server throughout the entirety of the day. This comes from the migration to EE, and the expansion in player base that Arelith has seen.

For this hire, we are looking for those that play within the Australian time zones - this does not mean you have to be of this time zone to apply. This is for time coverage in Australia evening (primarily 22:00 PM EST - 10:00 AM EST window - you are not required to be on as a DM for this full time. Just remember that!). This does not limit the hire to just the Australian player base. We are looking for interested parties that would cover these times on a regular basis (where your play is only during these times). We ask that any person that wishes to apply to apply (you do not have to have experience; however, experience will definitely help).

This application will follow the same format as those in the past. There will be a first round process (the initial application), and if you make it past, you will be informed of the second round interview time and date.

To apply:
  • Send a private message with your application to myself (DM Spyre) and only the Active Admin Team. DO NOT SEND IT TO THE ACTIVE DM TEAM
  • Provide as little or as much information for your application.
  • Ensure that it is suitably titled so we can identify you and that it is an application.
Please ensure that any and every application follows the above criteria. Each application will receive an answer as to whether it has made it to the second round or not.

Those that have applied last interviews and made it to the second round are ineligible this time around.

The deadline for the first round applications is set for: April 25th, 2018 at 23:00 EST

Thank you for continuing to support Arelith and make it what it is. We hope to see any interested parties that meet the time of play expectations come forward. And, we hope to see anyone who wishes to further aid Arelith to apply regardless of time zone.

Regards,

Spyre

Hello everyone,

Arelith is once more looking to recruit more DMs to fill additional seats on the team. With server growth and current staffing needs, the applications are being opened for all timezones (unlike the last recruitment). This application will follow the same format as those in the past. There will be a first round process (the initial application), and if you make it past, you will be informed of the second round interview time and date.

To apply:
Send a private message with your application to myself (Spyre) and only the Active Admin Team. DO NOT SEND IT TO THE ACTIVE DM TEAM
Provide as little or as much information for your application.
Ensure that it is suitably titled so we can identify you and that it is an application.
Please ensure that any and every application follows the above criteria. Each application will receive an answer as to whether it has made it to the second round or not.

The deadline for the first round applications is set for: August 19th, 2018 at 19:00 EST

Thank you for continuing to support Arelith and make it what it is. We hope to see any interested parties that wish to lend a hand to come forward.

Regards,

The first round applications have concluded for the DM positions. Everyone who has applied has received a response regardless if they made it or not.

This has been one of the more tough decisions to make due to quality and quantity. I appreciate the dedication people wish to push forward and the aid they want to offer. Those that did not make it, please do not feel discouraged. I strongly recommend applying again in the future.

Regards,

Spyre

Second round interviews have concluded. Please welcome the following new additions to the team:

- DM Hypoxia
- DM Tadpole
- DM Lachesis
- DM Henderson Kobold

Five new additions to the team that bring both unique perspectives and help strengthen the core. Please be kind to them as they transition and I hope you look forward to their help as much as the rest of us do.

A big thank you for those that made it to the interview tonight. I appreciate every application that we received and was glad to have had a chance to read feedback, and what each person would bring. The applications were near the highest we've seen. Thanks again!
