I just found out that Blizzard is hiring people for in-game customer support right here in Austin, TX. I know that I won’t be hired by them anymore than I’ll be hired by the other 4 companies I applied to today, but at least I can apply. Previously all the opportunities involved needing to live in Irvine, CA. I’m not really ready to relocate for a CS job.
You know what the best part of the IGRS job is? You don’t have to listen to customers whine on the phone! You communicate with them in-game through a typed-chat client. I already have to decipher all sorts of illiterate drivel here at work, and at least they’d be talking about something that I care about. I’m going to stare into space now, and day dream about getting a response to my resume.
