After working in marketing for many years I have taken a look at my future and found the core of what I want to work with for the rest of my life. My philosophy has always been that you are never too old and that it is never too late. So it's about time for me to kick myself ...
It's never easy when you want to combine an interest with a job position - particularly in Denmark, which is a relatively small country forum & game-wise. Therefore I have worked extensively on-line for years in my spare time creating various forums, working with communities and doing graphics work like banners, ads, etc. to get closer to my goal.
My contacts are scattered across the world and I communicate mostly in English. Seven years ago I met my boyfriend in an online multiplayer game – and he moved from Holland to Denmark 4.5 years ago. We bought a house together and got married. Today we install, style and administrate forums together in our spare time, and have a freelance business with IT solutions and graphics.
But I want more than that. For four years I hoped to find the job that allows me to combine my graphic skills with my interest in games, on-line work on forums and the community. And I almost managed.
I am in the fortunate position that I have been asked whether I want a job as Community Manager for an online game after New Year (on a part-time contract) - and I immediately said yes, as it is perfectly in line with my future plans. The company has offices in Thailand and the U.S., and although there were questions about my physical location (Denmark), everything is “close” enough through the Internet. Skype, private forum sections and normal email correspondence serves as a virtual office-space. And it is possible that I have to travel a few times a year - but my base is at home in my own little office and that ensures stability for me and my daughters, who go to school, and who have their life and friends in Denmark.
In addition I am working on creating and styling the community forum for the same game (company), and when it is released, I will also remain as the administrator of the forum.
But despite all this, the job is only on a part time basis and it is agreed that I do it next to my full time job as Marketing Manager in a large hotel company in Denmark to sure I have a 'normal' income.
My thought is that if I have several small jobs like this, I can follow my dream to work more independently from home with the things I love. And perhaps some of you - who are experts in forums need a person like me - or know someone who does?
What I can offer
- A total setup of your forums (including various features such as wiki, blogs, etc.)
- Styling the forums in Xenforo (colors, logo, design, etc.)
- Administrating your forums (updates, moderator features, news)
- Setting up online magazines, graphic banners, icons etc.
- Community Manager function (light) - the combination of in-game customer interaction, managing forums and in-game events (depending on game type), contests, interviews with players and companies, writing articles about new game releases, etc.
- Game testing (walk-troughs with documentation etc.)
- Tutorials and Guides ("How do I...")
As a person I am very honest, pro-active and committed to my work. I make sure that deadlines are met, get along with all types of people, love a good sense of humor – and it’s an honor for me to deliver a great result and a high level of quality.
