Job Description

Hello oDeskers,

We're searching for an experienced content writer for a multitude of website we run. The writer will be given a list with a minimum of 3 article topics each week, and will be responsible for analyzing the information they find to write quality content for our website. A basic understanding of the HTML language is helpful, but not required.

A couple examples of tasks you'll be sent might look like this:
**************************************************************
Article Topic/Title: "Population growth in Midland, Texas".
Format: Single article, 800-1000 words. Please elaborate on the population growth in the Midland area. Why has the population grown so quickly? Why is this an attractive place to live?
**************************************************************
Article Topic/Title: Best 5 Engineering Study Abroad Programs
Format: This article is 6 pages long:
a landing page: 300-500 words +
5 pages (1 per program) at 300 words/page
Total words: 1800-2000 words
**************************************************************
Guest Posts:
Please write a 500-600 word article titled "Staying Active In Retirement."
**************************************************************

*Detailed instructions will be presented when hired.*

Your responsibility would be to research the topic, then log in to our custom content management system (similar to Wordpress), write the article and upload images. This position permits a significant amount of creative latitude, but the content must be of high quality and sound natural. Articles should be interesting and easy to read, and content must be original (no copying/pasting or plagiarism will be permitted - this will be monitored as needed).

The compensation for this project depends on your qualifications and English skills. I will provide article topics along with instructions to post them each week and you may work on a flexible schedule. The topics aren't overly complex, and if you're a good typist and proficient English speaker I would expect this job would be easy for you to complete at a rate of 1 article in 1-2 hours.

If you're interested in applying for this position, please reply with the following:
- Why are you interested in this position?
- What writing experience do you have? Do you have examples or a portfolio?
- Do you have internet access at home? Is it reliable?
- Please correct the following sentences:

"I know your a English speaker, but there not English speakers."
"They'res probably not going to be many people their, but your going to have fun anyway."

All candidates will be required to write a 300-400 word article on an assigned topic as part of the interview process.

Thanks for your interest and look forward to working with you.
