The job interview hasn’t changed much over the years. There are the resumes, the face-to-face meetings, the callbacks — and the agonizing wait, as employers decide based on a hunch about who’s best suited for the job.

Some companies are selling the idea that new behavioral science techniques can give employers more insight into hiring.

Pymetrics is a company that uses brain games to measure things like attention to detail and risk tolerance, and match the player with career opportunities based on their results.

       Looking for artists for a game

Hi guys!!!

Our friend Rann is doing an RPGmaker game called BoPeep and she’s looking for artists who would want to collaborate in her game! This game will be programmed by Draxicor, programmer of both Pocket Mirror and Kago to Torii. I will also be helping in this game’s art in the most violent scenes.

Here’s the premise of her story!

Once Upon a Time there was a Sheep. She lived with her grandmother deep in the woods, and the two were so very happy. But one day the grandmother fell gravely ill. And with no one around to help them but herself, the young sheep ventured out into the woods…And thus begins our story about a Lost Sheep, the Woods, and a Wolf.                                                        -
Bo-Peep is an upcoming adventure/horror RPG Maker VX Ace game currently being developed. All characters will be kemonomimis, and it will contain references to a variety of fables, fairy-tales, and nursery rhymes. Though considered rather light-hearted, Bo-Peep will feature some dark elements. 

The game will feature:·

  • Voice Acting
  • 4+ Endings
  • Choices that affect the difficulty and length of the game
  • Bonus Content
  • References to Little Red Riding Hood, Bo-Peep, amongst other stories. 

If you’re interested in this project please contact the following email:

Attention all Everlark Authors and Artists!

I have created a group for all you Everlark authors and artists out there who want to join to have a private chat room here on tumblr to throw ideas around and/or get feedback, and have the page itself to use for posting/reblogging our fic recs to, and asking “the public” (hehe sorry. Couldn’t resist.) for input on plot lines dancing around our heads.

So far we have these Writers & Artists. (We have several more, but they have not given me information to add to the members page yet. Scrolling to the bottom of the page will show you all the members.)

The page is called everlarkianarchives.

This is the main page for all the members to reblog and/or post anything and everything related to Everlark writing and art.

We have a separate, password protected chat room here as well, and that is where all the real magic happens. (Nothing can be reblogged from that page, making it entirely a safe zone for all ideas, rants, and whatever else comes up there.)

Challenges, debates, dicussions, ideas…. And really, it’s just an all around safe place for anyone to come and talk about your day, about your writing, an idea you have but are afraid to share.

We really are a support group/coffee shop. Now if only we could find some cheesebuns…..

So. If you are an Everlark writer or artist and want to join, Fill out this form! All it is is your tumblr username (so I know who you are) and your email, so I can send you an invitation. After you accept it, message me here on tumblr I will email you an invitation to the chat room (basically a private blog) here on tumblr and PM you the password. (No one will see your email. It is only for the invitations.)

So please, share, join, whatever!

And, remember, just to be clear, when you fill out the form, no one else will see your email. I just need it to send an invitation.

How To Advertise Your Services

This is some general presentation advice aimed at skilled individuals looking to offer their services. While this was inspired by some particularly bad advertisements in the visual novel community, the advice is broadly applicable.

Present yourself confidently, but modestly. Don’t say “I think I’m a pretty good artist” or “I’m not very good but …” — the former sounds narcissistic and the latter makes it sound like you have no faith in your abilities. Instead list what you can do without qualifying it. Omit things you’re not confident about.

Get your work in people’s face as soon as possible. Nobody cares about your life story before they know you. Put the art, audio, writing, code, diagrams, or whatever else at the start of your advertisement.

Keep things short. If you’re a writer they’ve decided after the first paragraph or two whether or not they want you. If you’re a musician, the first two tracks. An artist, the first two images. And so on. Link to longer content for those interested.

Show off only your best work. It’s better to show one good thing than a good thing plus a not-so-good thing. Your weakest example is your strongest so exercise restraint.

Format your post for legibility then aesthetics. Use desaturated dark text on a light background (or light text on dark background) and left-align paragraphs. No exceptions. Keep things short and break information into logical chunks with headings. Use lists for information people will want to quickly scan such as pricing lists. Proofread your post before submitting it.

Assume that people will search the profiles associated with your name or handle. This includes anything you link to. If someone ends up on your Deviant Art profile and sees a blog post where you describe yourself as “lazy” they’re not going to contact you.

Personality is fine as long as it doesn’t contradict these points. There’s nothing wrong with some nice formatting or mentioning your interests, just make sure the formatting isn’t actually aggravating or your interests long-winded and/or unrelated.

List information, don’t make people ask for it. “PM me for details” — No. You post the details or I close the browser tab.

This is advice not law, nor complete. These are personal rules of thumb and I bend or break them occasionally.

Spring Recruitment Lookbook 2015

Hi ladies! Y’all have made a ton of requests for outfit ideas for spring formal recruitment, so I decided to compile them all in one post! At most universities, recruitment is a week long, and the style of dress becomes more formal as the rounds progress… so let’s get started!

Open House (Round One - Typically split into two days at larger schools) this is the most casual round of recruitment, and it tends to vary on what schools choose to do for this round. In the past, Virginia Tech has done a ‘casual dress’ kind of outfit, but has changed it so that all of the PNM’s wear a matching t-shirt and jeans. If this is the case, make yourself stand out/show off your personality with the way you accessorize your outfit.

  • option 1 (if your school does not go the t-shirt route)
  • option 2 (if your school does not go the t-shirt route)
  • option 3 (if your school does not go the t-shirt route)
  • option 4 (if your school does not go the t-shirt route)

Philanthropy (Round Two - Typically split into two days at larger schools) this round is slightly more formal… I would suggest wearing a blouse/skirt combo or black denim and a blouse with nice riding boots/booties.

Sisterhood (Round 3 - Only one day) this round begins to become much more formal than the previous two rounds (without actually being super formal- think a dress/skirt with tights and heels/nice riding boots). Keep your outfit classy while conveying your personal style (accessorizing is key).

Preference (Round 4 - The final day of formal recruitment) this is the most formal round of recruitment because you will be down to (hopefully) three houses that you absolutely love, and they will be performing a ritual ceremony for the PNM’s.. Think cocktail attire (NOT SPARKLY FRU-FRU HOMECOMING DRESSES…. COME ON NOW Y’ALL PLEASE JUST DON’T DO THAT), so a nice dress that you would wear to a fancy dinner/heels. You want to keep things simple and classy (no va-voom because we are all ladies here, and that will not help you win over your top house).

Other Notes - Be sure to have your hair fixed and makeup looking fresh at all times (you will have 15 minutes in-between each party to freshen up outside). Also be sure to have your hair clean and styled in a pretty way (if you have rainbow colors in your hair, recruitment is probably not the best time to make that sort of statement). Make sure that your nails are natural looking with either a French Manicure, or just a light pink/nude color polish (no dark polish/long talons on your fingers). Last, be sure to leave your bag with the Rho Gammas outside the house, and leave your watch at home so that you won’t be inclined to check the time while you’re in the middle of your party.

GOOD LUCK!! You are all going to look beautiful and do amazing!
