WriterJob - a new platform for a freelance writer.

Hi everyone and welcome again!


Thanks to the technological progress nowadays people can work and more and more people do it from home. Everybody saw that famous pictures of men with a laptop or tablet working from home or cafe at any time they want. In a professional language these people are called freelancers who don't have a work place, timetable, bosses and their results completely depend on them. To be a good freelancer cost a lot, the same if you want to be the best worker in your profession.

In the internet we can find plenty of webpages where you can work as a freelancer and hire one to complete a job. Majority of freelancers are good at web work such as copywriting, web designers, IT-specialists, etc. One of the most important freelance job is a writer job. We all read something in the web and a well-written text is needed in this case. It's a big success for any webpage which wants to become popular among people. Sometimes I ask one of my friends who works as a freelance writer to help me who to write better my post.

One of the platform I found interesting is www.writerjob.org. A good thing is that the service is very friendly and they answer you quite quickly, that's very important for me especially. I would say that it's nicer if the explanations are shorter, I understand their ideas quite well but sometimes it repeats. A good point is that on the web page you can find some samples (123) of their work related with the writer job. For those who want to start working there they made a good section "Writer Job" with 4 topics that helps you to understand how to apply for work. Also it is not a bad idea to include some references of their clients to make their services more reliable.

All in all, the webpage looks modern, simple and clear but at the same time it looks like it needs something as I mentioned in previous paragraph. But what is the most important is the service you receive on this webpage.

Reference from student #7.

Hi everyone and welcome again!

Here you have a new reference from one of my student, Jose, who has had 1.30 h classes with me for 4 months one time per week. We stopped for a while with classes because right now he is involved in some important projects in his company and works quite hard to finish them. This is a brief story about his experience with me:

Jose needed to improve his business English since he works in an international company and one of the goals was to make his speech fluent and improve writing skills. He was very worry about his writing but after we saw some of his job emails I was pretty impressed by his English, it was a very professional language so I exaplained him that there is nothing to worry about his writing, it's perfect. But we did need to work on his speaking to make him talk as well as he writes. Right now we stopped for a while with classes, because the job in a big international company sometimes requieres a lot of effort and Jose is involved right now in some important projects in his company. Good luck Jose! See you soon!
