Every day after we post our lists of freelance writing job leads blog , members of the FWJ community discuss the job hunt. We talk about scams, dream gigs and frustrations with the folks who place the ads.Which brings us to today’s open forum.
I’m frustrated by vague ads giving no information about the job and potential clients who feel they know how long a gig should take. I’m frustrated with the guys who want to pay $3 per article for 300 articles each week. I’m especially frustrated by the content sites that use RSS feeds to place their job ads at every single city in every single state at Monster and Career Builder, as if a few top cities and placement on the top job boards aren’t enough.
Now share, what are your freelance writing job ad frustrations? Which ads make your shake your head and groan?
