Job Board >> Freelance Business Writer
|Date Posted||14, Thursday 2013|
|Listing Type||Word Based|
These would be part-time, freelance assignments, with a typical assignment requiring the writing of 2-8 articles (approx. 350 words each), each with one or two interviewees, to be completed in one week. Assignments would come in sporadically ... you may have none for a month, and then many assignments the following month.
You must be an excellent business writer and be able to express complex, technical -- and sometimes mundane -- business concepts in an easy-to-understand, entertaining way. Freelancer must be readily available on short notice to complete these assignments. For that reason, please do not apply if you’re unavailable to take assignments more than 3 weeks out of a typical year.
Because the freelancer must be available to discuss assignments, conduct phone interviews and work on last-minute revisions during regular business hours, only full-time freelance writers will be considered (no moonlighting freelancers, please).
A journalism or English degree is preferred, and you must have at least three years of experience writing business-related articles for newspapers or magazines. You must have dozens of business-related article writing samples that you can share with us, if requested, and you must have several satisfied freelance clients who we can talk to for references. Also, only those who live in the U.S. or Canada will be considered.
Please apply only if you meet ALL of the above requirements. Also, be sure to include your minimum per-word pay requirement. Only those who list a minimum per-word pay rate will be considered ... please do not list it as “open” or “negotiable.” If interested and you meet ALL of the requirements above, please e-mail your resume to [email protected] We will then contact those leading candidates who offer the best combination of business writing experience and expertise at the most competitive rates to request more information and samples.
(Due to the hundreds of applicants we typically get for these types of telecommuting freelance positions, we regret that we cannot give personalized responses or feedback to each applicant. No calls, please.)
