Good morning FWJ Friends! I’ve got opps for bloggers, copywriters, and technical writers for you this morning. There are postings looking for a dance critic/writer, a grant writer, and someone familiar with writing sales presentations. A fact checking gig also made today’s list.
One posting that I decided to skip was where the employer wanted to see a custom-written, 1,000 word sample. Even though the ad stated that the samples would not be used unless the applicant was hired, it seemed a bit much to me. An employer should be able to get some idea about a writer’s “voice” from his or her samples.
What do you think? Is a 1,000-word custom sample asking too much? How many hoops would you jump through to get hired if the job seemed like a good, well-paying one?
