Penny Acrade Comics Is Hiring (They must be doing something right)

Penny Arcade, the succesful online webcomic portal, is looking for a full time associate designer and has posted a job listing on Linked In.  Penny Arcade embraces, and at the same time sticks it’s tongue out, at everything video game and sci fi/fantasy related, which has allowed it to garner a huge online following.  If you’re in the Seattle, Washington area and are looking for a good full time design gig in your field, Penny Arcade is obviously the place to look.

Let’s not be suckered in by histrionics, here. We need to see their tax filings as proof.

They’re clearly lying …both to the wider world, and to the well-paid employees they already have.

“They must be doing something right”

Absolutely. For example, they’re very wisely charging to run ads on their site instead of putting up classifieds for free and calling it a blog post.

I’m… I’m actually pleasantly surprised by that, Scott.

The Amish have a saying: “I will not take the thing from your hand.” Why DC is trolling its own site is beyond me.

I honestly didn’t post this to fuel the on going exhausting labor of a debate that TDC is becoming infamous for. I posted it because i thought maybe, JUST MAYBE, somebody reading TDC might be a good fit for this opportunity.

Unfortunately, what they don’t tell you is that you’ll only be paid with webcomic money, which, as we all know, is absolutely worthless.

@Scott: Consider me walked away.

(Wish me luck; I’m on deadline for a book. Tonight.)

Well, if they’re not offering a salary of over 100K a year, then it hardly proves anything. (that would be sarcasm.)
