Product Description Writer
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
We are in need of several writers with excellent English language writing skills, to write product descriptions for health supplements and related health and exercise products.
Please only apply if you can begin work immediately and commit to at least 12 hours a week for the next eight weeks. With the Christmas and New Years holidays coming up, we understand that some time will be taken off, but it must be made up immediately after the holidays.
All candidates are required to submit a rewrite of the attached text file. Candidacies will be judged primarily on the quality of the rewrite. Please do not send any other attachments. No candidacy will be considered without the rewrite. Many otherwise excellent candidates did not get the job because they did not follow this one point. For just 15 minutes spent on the sample rewrite, you can land a job that will potentially allow you to work 20 hours a week.
Writers will be paid $7 an hour (we will pay oDesk fees). There is no point in bidding lower, as low bids will not affect hiring decisions.
If you have applied before to our company, please feel free to do so again, as this has the very strong potential to turn into a very long contract.
In the past, we have given many first time contractors their first job on oDesk, and we have been delighted with the results. Many of our writers have leveraged the experience they gained working with us into more lucrative positions, and we are always happy to see one of our own go on to better things.
You will be given detailed instructions on our procedures. You will be expected to meet a minimum level of productivity. In the past, very few writers have had any trouble following either our instructions or meeting the productivity levels requested.
It will help if a candidate can link their Linkedin profile, but it is not a requirement for the job.
After you have written the test rewrite, run your work through a similarity checker at http://utext.rikuz.com/en/ , and make sure the score on the first line is less than 40%.
As mentioned before, we have given many first time freelancers their first job. If this is your first freelance job, please approach it with the dedication and maturity you would apply to a traditional job. Please make sure that you are serious about a freelance career, and accept that this is not a job for anyone with illusions of being able to do the work during commercial breaks of "CSI Whataver".
We look forward to meeting some new talented writers. Good luck.
