A while ago I wrote a post about finding freelance work online. Since then, however, I’ve realized just how much of writing work is really “feast or famine.” In other words, sometimes it’s easy to find writing work. There seems to be no end of listings and jobs that you qualify for. Other times (like now), you can’t seem to find anything reputable or engaging.
Guess what: you can still find work even in the toughest times. How?
By utilizing one of these fantastic websites:
- MediaBistro. The very best site for writers and other creative types. Seriously, go now.
- LinkedIn. If you don’t have a LinkedIn account yet, shame on you. It’s one of the best tools for the modern professional. LinkedIn functions primarily as a networking site that allows you to apply for jobs while utilizing connections with people you may know in the industry or organization you’re interested in. Check it out.
- Indeed. This basic job search site has writing positions, too! Simply type “writer,” “editor,” or what have you into the search bar and see what comes up. Indeed is fantastic because it pulls listings from several different websites, including Craigslist.
- Levo League. Although geared mainly toward women, this sophisticated site is a great place to find jobs and internships for every industry, including writing. Most of the applications featured here allow you to connect your LinkedIn profile or apply using a resume, making the process a breeze. Besides job listings, Levo also has tools such as articles and mentors to help you land the job of your dreams.
Armed with these sites, an up-to-date resume, and a polished cover letter, you’ll be on your way to landing a new job in no time at all. Bookmark these websites and be sure to share them with anyone who might need them. Good luck!
