I take a lot of heat for defending certain content sites who hire writers for entry level opportunities. However, I have a pet peeve with many, and I’m sure you’ll share my sentiments.
I can’t stand when web content sites flood the job boards. Every city, every state, every town, and in some cases, every country.
Most writers look beyond their towns for finding freelance writing work. They look in the major cities and they check job search engines such as Indeed. There’s no need to flood the feeds. This only makes you look spammy. We see your ads, we simply don’t want to see them too much.
When content sites flood the feeds with job ads, people assume many things:
- You’re spammy.
- You have a high turnover rate.
- You can’t hire enough writers.
- You’re annoying.
None of these are good things. Please stop spamming the job boards. I can understand an ad in each major city and perhaps one on each different job board. But when you hit Monster, Yahoo! and others with an ad feeding into each different city, town, street, avenue or municipality, you’re wearning on my nearves. Enough with all the job ads already.
