The second episode
of the Drone Bay podcast
directed listeners to check out a website called EVE Careers,
a sort of Monster.com
or Career Builder
for players of EVE Online.
There are sections where both pilots
's equivalent to player guilds) can post ads to connect with one another.
As the hosts of the Drone Bay noted, one of the big challenges for new players in EVE
(and even experienced players, in certain circumstances) is finding a good corp to join. While it's possible to get by on your own to some extent in EVE
, you'll be missing out on ... well, pretty much everything interesting about the game if you aren't part of one. EVE
Careers presently has an almost 70-page list of corporations
for you to check out, making it one of your best bets if you've been going it alone.CCP
CEO Hilmar Petursson told the New York Times
a while back that EVE
is different from other games like World of Warcraft
because it's not just a game, it's a society -- at least, to a greater extent than WoW
-types are. With its quarterly economic reports from the CCP Fed,
its Council for Stellar Management,
and now this player-run job board website, that's tough to argue with, even though there are forums for guild-finding
in other games as well.
