Title: Freelance Writer
Date Posted: 2017-07-01
Location: Not mentioned
Strong Compensation * Work from Home * Industry Innovator
This is an opportunity to bring your top-shelf writing abilities, strong customer facing skills and business acumen to a position that offers a good deal of flexibility, excellent compensation and the chance to work in the comfort of your own home office. You will help Decision Toolbox (DT) create the "secret sauce" that gives us a distinct edge on every search in the highly competitive talent market: the Jobinfo Writeup. Even as a freelancer, we'll welcome you into a unique and positive culture that encourages excellence and recognizes achievements.

As a power tool for our expert recruiters, a Jobinfo Writeup targets highly qualified candidates and conveys much more than what makes a client company an employer of choice -- we position each opening as an opportunity of choice. We don't sugar-coat or "spin." There is a right job for every person and a right person for every job, and the Writeup plays a key role in the matchmaking process.

Decision Toolbox, an Engage2Excel company, is an unconventional recruiting company with a single focus: doing recruitment exceptionally well. Since 1992, we've recruited for thousands of positions across 2,000 titles nationwide, filling positions for an average cost per hire of 7% of salary. Our unique culture combines a high degree of creativity and support as well as frequent high-fives. These are some of the many reasons we are a three-time winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility, an eight-time winner of the prestigious HRO Baker's Dozen list of On-Demand RPO Providers, and a four-time honoree of the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies.



To meet the minimum qualifications for this role you will have experience as a professional writer. In addition, in order to be a good fit for the Freelance Writer opportunity, you will have:

- Writing samples demonstrating the ability to create lively, compelling copy that informs and engages in a conversational tone. Quick question for you - click here
- A friendly, professional phone manner and experience working with/interviewing business professionals and executives.
- Strong keyboarding skills (you'll need to take detailed notes while conducting telephone interviews).
- Comfort discussing diverse positions in a wide variety of industries; experience writing about technology and/or healthcare is a plus.
- A home office environment that is relatively quiet, distraction-free, and has high-speed Internet access.
- A bachelor's degree is strongly preferred, but demonstrated talent is most important.
- Flexible availability during normal business hours.

Our preference is that you live in the Eastern or Central time zone, as we have several clients in those areas. If you live in the Mountain or Pacific time zone, you will need to be willing and able to take some calls very early in the morning.

You will support recruitment efforts for a wide variety of clients and position types, but the goal always will be to tell the unique story of each open position in a way that intrigues candidates who are a strong fit. There are two primary components to this challenging role.

The Discovery Call
You will lead these 45-minute brainstorming sessions, involving the client and the DT Recruitment Partner. During the call you will dig deep, probing for inside information and specific details about the job itself, the company culture and the profile of the ideal candidate. Quick question for you - click here The DC is not a Q&A session, but a consultative conversation. The Recruitment Partner plays a pivotal role, but the overall objective of the DC is to understand what will attract candidates who are the best fit.

The Jobinfo Writeup
Using all the information you've collected, your goals in creating the Writeup will be to:

- Paint a clear picture of the role, providing job seekers with fresh insights that they can't get anywhere else.
- Highlight aspects of the role that will engage and attract the right candidates.
- Differentiate this opening from similar openings at other companies.
- Create a story this is low on fluff and high on protein.

You also will find and embed videos that support the Writeup's message (no doubt you've already figured out that you're reading an example).

You'll submit the completed Writeup to the client, via our system, within 48 hours of the DC. After that you will follow up with the client, making suggested edits and getting approval as quickly as possible. As long as you meet the deadline, you'll have a good deal of flexibility around your writing schedule.

Scheduling the Discovery Calls, however, is a little different. We try to book the calls at least two days in advance, but it's not unusual for a client to request a DC on shorter notice. We assign Writers according to a seniority-based rotation, and we'll respect your schedule requests. Just the same, the more you are available, the more work you will be able to take on.

Initially, you will focus on creating Jobinfo Writeups. In addition, we are developing a new written product. We can't reveal too much detail here, and things may change, but this product should be faster to develop, and you wouldn't need to be on the DC. In other words, if you focused exclusively on the new product, you could have almost complete flexibility in your schedule.
