Applying to join a Corporation
When you have found a corporation of your liking, you can select "Apply to Join" to bring up the corporation application form. If you are unsure of what kind of corporation you are looking for, it would be an excellent idea of knowing why you are joining a corporation. What you should include in your application very much depends on what corporation you are applying to join as different corporations have different requirements. This information however is generally available in the corporation's description, in their recruitment advertisement or can be acquired from their recruiters or recruitment chat channels.
Once you have written and sent your application it will be reviewed by the corporation before it is either accepted or rejected. You can apply to as many corporations as you wish and you can withdraw your own applications at any time during the process. Once an application has been accepted by the corporation, you will be invited to join and required to confirm whether you intend to join this corporation or withdraw your application.
Creating a Corporation Advertisement
You can create a corporation advertisement by opening the corporation window, selecting the “Recruitment” tab and then the “My Corporation” sub-tab. You then select the “Create” button. A corporation can create a maximum of three of these advertisements.
When creating the advertisement, you have two tabs in which you can edit options.
In the “Details” tab, you have the ability to select all of the options listed in the above section with the additional option of setting duration for your advertisement. Editing your current advertisement will extend the advertisement for the new duration.
In the “Recruiters” tab, you can select up to six corporation members to be points of contact for recruitment purposes. You can either select the character and press the “Add” button or drag and drop the character to an available space.
You can also select a recruitment channel for players to join. You must have the public channel open before you begin creating or editing the advertisement for it to be shown in the drop down menu.
Applications can be reviewed under the "Applications to Corporation" tab in Recruitment where they are listed in chronological order. From there the applications can be filtered and managed by pressing the filter icon and selecting a specific status or by typing in the filter to search for specific applications.
The statuses of applications are descriptive and easy to understand.
- Unprocessed - The application has been sent to the corporation for review.
- Invited to join - The corporation has been accepted and the player has received an invitation to join the corporation.
- Rejected - The application has been rejected by the corporation.
- Accepted - The player has accepted the extended invitation and become a member of the corporation.
- Withdrawn - The player has withdrawn the application, which the player can do at any time during the process.
You can review the applications one at a time simply by clicking on them, which will cause a drop down box to appear below the pilot's name and portrait, and read what the applicant wrote in their application before deciding their fate.
Once a player has accepted their invitation to join the corporation, they will receive the standard corporation welcoming mail. This message can be edited by the corporation to include any relevant information and/or links that new members should be aware of as soon as they join the corporation.
To edit the welcoming mail, go to the "Corporation Ads" tab under Recruitment and select "Edit Welcome Mail". There you can review the current welcoming mail as well as when and by whom it was lasted edited in white text. Once any changed have been made, select "Apply" and the last edit time stamp will be updated with green text.
