One of the best things about being a freelance writer is getting to work from home. I am also always searching job boards for cool writing jobs. If you’re in the market for full-time or freelance work, check out these job notices:
- full-time tech writer https://jobs.lever.co/circonus/6877dd19-9dec-4fd8-948f-c2e923e056ea
- English language blogger for language learning site https://www.freelancewriting.com/listing/53794/
- full-time business development writer https://www.mediabistro.com/jobs/description/376607/business-development-writer-for-small-business-publication-remote-ok/
- full-time remote copy editor https://www.webpagefx.com/careers/earned-media/full-time-remote-copy-editor.html
Where to find writing jobs
My favorite job boards are freelancewriting.com, mediabistro.com and ratracerebellion.com.
I have also built relationships with various editors over my career and get jobs through them.
Tips for applying
Always, always read the job notice and follow all instructions.
If the name of the contact person is available (it could even be within the email address), address that person by name. Do not assume gender. You can start the email with Hi <Contact’s name>.
Don’t be offended if you don’t get the job. Maybe the company only had budget to hire one person and hundreds of people applied. Maybe your writing style, while good, just doesn’t fit what they want.
Now spruce up that resume and find your best writing clips! 🙂
