Sadface, I want to be a system admin someday, but alas, I still have much college work to go. This would have been a dream job

I just graduated with my B.S of computer science today. It is in the field of Media Arts, and Animation...so if you need 3d models or something. I could probably help better. (also, I blame my lack luster reel on you, and my poor ability to not play your game)

"Top-notch", "can do attitude" System Administrators are already employed, by in large. Posting the Salary Range and benefits package may help attract qualified candidates, like myself, more than just the *shazam-wow-cool* factor of working for Riot Games.
