Hi there. We’re looking for new writers for the DistantJob blog. You can check it out here:
Please read the following attentively. There will be a test at the end. We'll disregard messages from people who don't pass. People who pass will become legendary, famous, rich, beautiful and we'll contact them for an interview. One of these things will happen, at least.
Here’s what we expect from you:
- Good English. You don’t have to be a native speaker, but your writing should read pleasantly to a native speaker.
- No word stuffing. We pay per word. We can see it if you're stuffing your articles full of super-complex sentences and lots of words just to charge us more. We will just ask you to revise and simplify it, wasting our time and yours. Don’t do it.
- To be able to come up with your topics in our niche. We don’t need you to be an expert, by the way, just to be willing to research, learn, and pass on the learning to our readers. We will also provide topics, by the way, but we like our writers to have autonomy.
Here’s what’s in it for you:
- A regular freelance gig. We request 1-2 articles per week, usually averaging at 1000 words each.
- We’re cool people, and we’re flexible with deadlines. We want you to do quality work and won’t complain if that takes an extra day or extra week.
- We pay on time.
Here’s what you need to include in your application to get the job:
- Link to one sample of your best writing. One. 1. Uno. If you have trouble deciding, roll the dice. Please send only one.
- Link to your CV or LinkedIn profile.
- Your rate per word, in USD.
- Propose the outline of an article covering a topic that you would write for our blog. A TITLE is not enough. We want to see a Table Of Contents.
PROTIP: Our readers are business-owners, CEOs, and managers. They don’t care about how your experience remote working while backpacking through India allowed you to reconnect with your house cat. They care about how remote work can make their companies leaner, meaner, more profitable.
That’s it. See you on the other side!
P.S.: Actually, that’s not it. We love people that read the “PS” more than we love the other people. So tell us what’s your favorite book / comic book after the points we described above. The other guys? We’re not reading their applications.
