Hello there! Have you ever wondered how you could improve upon your application? Perhaps you were denied and were a bit unsure about what to fix? This thread will guide you through some of the useful tip and tricks that will enhance the overall quality of your application.


The Trainee stage (which is the first rank of staff) is a rewarding process. Contrary to what some may believe, this is quite frankly the most important step of your entire staff career. You will either make or break it. It is your moment to prove that you are ready to tackle the challenges that come with a leadership position. For these reasons, your application must reflect your dedication to the community. Try to be sincere and show as much effort as possible. Always be honest and do not try to hide behind a mask and pretend to be someone you are not.

Five Key Points:

To make things simple, there are only five basic, yet key points, that separate the good applications from the bad ones.

  • Detail
    • Every question has equal weight to the final decision. Answer each in-depth and elaborate as much as possible. Don’t just answer the question with the bare minimum. If you have a specific example, write it down! The more the recruitment team can see, the better idea of you they will get.
  • Syntax
    • This is simple. If you can’t use proper grammar, diction, and punctuation on your application, how can you use it when speaking with others? Staff members are supposed to provide good customer service. Using good syntax shows the recruitment that you are mature and professional.
  • Honesty
    • Honesty is the best policy. If you can’t be honest with yourself, how can you be honest with the recruitment? The staff team does have methods of checking a candidate's background. If it is revealed that you have lied or “stretched the truth”, your application will be denied. Just be honest.
  • Sincerity
    • I’ll just cut to the chase. If the recruitment team feels that your application is cliché or does not stand out enough, it will be denied. If the team feels that your application lacks passion or liveliness, it will again be denied. “Why do you want to join the staff team? Do you have any goals? What makes you different from other applicants. Why should we even take any interest in you?” These are all potential questions that may be asked and it is your responsibility to answer them to the best of your ability.
  • Dedicated Time
    • Staff are supposed to be active community members. However, if activity is your only positive attribute, your application is likely to be denied. You will need to show the recruitment other skills you possess that will allow you to stand out.

Final Remarks:

As said, the Trainee stage is a rewarding process. If you would like to see yourself working one day for the MuxMC staff team, your application must make a good impression. If you have any questions regarding the application form or the process in general, feel free to ask a staff member.
