Are you sick of having to spend countless hours looking for new writing opportunities on a weekly basis? Worn out from having to constantly learn new writing requirements? If the answer to either one of these questions is yes, we NEED to talk!
This is a STABLE opportunity for the right person, since the clients we work with are all locked into long-term contracts. If you can consistently deliver high-quality content and don't miss deadlines, you may have just found a new home. What's more, there's plenty of opportunity to grow, and if you're interested in truly honing in on your craft, I'll be here to help mentor you along the way.
What I'm looking for is simple: PLEASE be serious about the work that you do. While it may just be "content writing" to you, it's something much more important than that to clients and often times, the work you do ties into much larger marketing campaigns. As such, it's important that you treat this like an actual job instead of just a side-hobby to generate some extra money when you need it.
Reliability in this position is imperative. I believe in regular communication - if you are going to disappear for days on end when there is work to be done, this is not going to be a good fit for you (or for me). Regular updates keep everyone on track - and more importantly, they ensure that deadlines are met. Meeting deadlines is a MUST. If you are not someone who understands this concept, please do not apply. If you are given a deadline, you're expected to meet it. And if you know you're not going to meet it, I'm expecting you to be professional enough to let me know. Having an excellent command of the English language is a given - otherwise you're going to get frustrated with me and I'm going to get frustrated with you.
I will do my absolute best to set up up for success from the day you come on board. What I ask in return is that you commit to setting yourself up for success right out of the gates as well.
If this opportunity sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to submit a proposal. In so doing, please submit AT LEAST 2 writing samples so that I can gauge your skill levels. Submissions that do not include writing samples will be deleted.
*** When applying, please reference "I'm ready for reliable, consistent weekly work" somewhere in your submission. If you fail to include this text somewhere in your cover letter, your application will be immediately deleted. Following directions is critical to the success of the work you'll be doing and this is a very minor test to ensure that you can - and will.
When applying, I would appreciate it if you can let me know the following:
1. how quickly you would be able to start
2. what rate you are seeking per word (I'm not looking for someone who wants an hourly rate... ALL of our contracts are on a per-per-word basis)
3. what your availability is on a weekly basis (what type of volume you could write)
I know I've thrown a lot out here, but I like to be as detailed and thorough as possible as it relates to what I'm looking for. I'm looking for someone who is in this for the long haul. Is that you? If so, I can't wait to hear from you!
