We are looking for an experienced investment analyst/writer who can write insightful articles on large cap stocks. Needless to say, writers should have a good command of written English and must be able to produce original content. Plagiarism is unacceptable. The work that you submit to us will be published primarily on major financial websites and on our blog.
Please note that there is no guarantee that the work you submit to us will be published. We won't accept any milestones until your work is published. Hence your work must be of a sufficiently high standard.
Currently we want articles on the following stocks: AAPL, FB, GILD, TSLA, GOOG, TWTR, GE, BAC and T. We will especially prefer writers who can write on AAPL, FB and GOOG.
Your articles must be insightful and should add something new to the conversation regarding the stocks mentioned above. We are not looking for aggregation of data and/or reporting on how well or poorly a company has done up to that point. Articles of this type will be rejected by us and lead to the termination of the contract. Articles should not be full of filler with background on the company and the products or services that they offer. You should assume that the audience you are writing for is sophisticated and already familiar with the company/sector/industry/economy and with common investing and financial terms (EPS, P/E, gross margin, long, short, etc.). We’re looking for independent writers and analysts who do not need much direction.
You’ll probably want to aim for roughly 600-800 words, but we won't be sticklers about word count.
This is the kind of work we are looking for:
For the first article that you submit to us, you'll be paid $25 (inclusive of Upwork charges). If we like your work we will increase your pay per article for subsequent articles considerably.
Please note that if you are hired, we will want you to submit the first article within 36 hours. Start your proposal by writing 'Here lies Voltaire', so that I know that you've completely read the job description.
