Our last list of writing jobs for March – how time flies!
Good luck and happy Friday, folks 🙂
One thing nearly every freelance writer is going to have to do is sign a contract. Contracts, when written well, protect both the freelancer and the client by avoiding any confusion and preventing anyone from giving up any rights that they didn’t intend.
But as necessary and as useful as contracts are, they are often filled with terms that can cause confusion. Many freelancers, intimidated either by the size or the seeming complexity of their contracts often just sign them with little more than a cursory glance. This is a poor move that can cause a freelance to sign a bad deal with no legal recourse against it.
In a tough economy with so many people out of work, finding a job can be a mind-numbing process, and finding a freelance writing job is no different. The problem, though, does not lay in the job-finding part; any website you browse will list hundreds of open positions. These common websites are flooded daily with overqualified applicants that are hired before you even click the posting. Because of this, you may need to consider finding an alternative way to job search in this job market. The key: networking.
