Attention Writers: Idealist Is Looking for Freelancers for Its Careers Site
Editor’s Note: This position is currently on hold.
Here at The Penny Hoarder, we’re not only looking for full-time writers and remote freelancers to join our growing team — we’re also always looking to share good job opportunities, including other writing jobs.
If you’re not familiar with Idealist, it’s a site that connects people with information about jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities in the nonprofit sector or with other organizations that help society-at-large.
According to this job listing, writers will be paid $50 a post and are expected to write at least two posts a month, either from ideas they’ve pitched or topics assigned by an editor.
Idealist is looking for people who have experience writing for an online publication. They want fact-checking grammar whizzes who are detailed-oriented and yet have an eye for brevity.
It’d be a plus if you understand SEO fundamentals, have worked in the social-impact space before or have previous experience conducting interviews for articles.
To score this gig, you’ll need to submit a resume, cover letter and 400- to 600-word writing sample on one of two previously determined topics.
