Freelance Writing Jobs Thursday 20 August 2009

get freelance jobsWe’ve waded through a giant pile of scam sites today while seeking freelance jobs to bring you.  We just can’t trust any site that lists page after page of freelance writing gigs and other freelance work of every description with the same salary–$30,000 a year–listed on every job opening. Looks like an e-mail farm to us.

But there are legit freelance writing jobs out there, including the Photography Blogger position for the Digital Photography School (advertised at Pro-Blogger), and the permanent technical writer/editor slot advertised by Links Media LLC. Drop them a line at and don’t forget to include salary requirements and three or more clips such as “press documents, management report, article” according to the job ad.

The Advisory Board Company is still looking for a staff writer. This is a medical writing position, see The Advisory Board Company job website for all the details. Ultimate Software advertises a position open for a B2B freelance writer. This is a software marketing gig, so you’ll be writing copy and such.

Finally, advertises for a gaming blogger. The ad states this is perfect for people who want to earn money and play games but no mention of salary or pay scales makes us wonder if this isn’t a PPC residual thing. ***UPDATE*** Eric Friedman, poster of the job for says this is indeed a paid gig, not a residual PPC deal, so this is definitely a worthy video gamer blog opportunity. Many thanks to Eric for setting the record straight!

  1. Hey,

    I am the owner and poster of that job link. Yes this is a paid job and I should have done a better job explaining that. To date, all writers have been referrals and friends so this is my first time going outside.

    I hope this clarifies the post and I welcome any questions or feedback on how to attract and keep freelance writers extremely happy and working on something they love to do.


  2. Thanks for the update, Eric…much appreciated. I updated the post to reflect the new info…and anytime you have openings, please feel free to drop us a line, we’d love to run more writing/editing gigs if you have them 🙂

  3. Ahhh…thank you very much! One minor little slip of the keyboard is all it takes to dork things up but good 🙂 Fixed now….
