Title: Personal Finance Freelance Writer
Date Posted: 2017-07-25
Location: Not mentioned

First Quarter Finance is a rapidly growing personal finance website (covering consumer topics such as where to buy certain items, which stores price match, how much things cost, and more).

Why Work with First Quarter Finance:

You'll work 100% remote, you get to set your own hours, you get to work in a fast-growing company but one that's beyond 'startup mode', we have very specific processes for you to carry out (no guess work), and you'll work with a great team in a calm yet high-achieving culture.

Essential Duties:

- Write one article per week minimum, no maximum.
- Each article is outlined for you, ready to be filled in (makes writing the article much simpler/faster.
- You must cite your sources but only using the appropriate anchor text.
- Sometimes you must make phone calls to companies to gather information from either customer support or a few stores themselves. Formal interviews are never needed.
- Once you gain proficiency, we'll see if you'd like to be an editor instead/in addition to.

If you're self-motivated, enjoy working from home, love organization, are both a skilled technical and creative writer, can handle constructive feedback, have the availability to produce lots of great content, we want you on our team.

Job Requirements:

- Your writing must have good flow.
- You must be able to identify and cite credible sources.
- You must be eager.
- You must be coachable (we have a great team of editors to fix many things but they will likely provide feedback from time-to-time).
- You must have a positive attitude.
- You must want to do this long-term.
- You must be comfortable with the basics of WordPress.

This role is ideal for someone who's a full-time freelance writer or someone who simply enjoys writing and using their skill to earn extra money. Some writers write for the site nearly full-time. Topics are provided. This role will last indefinitely. English majors, journalism majors, communications majors, liberal arts majors, business administration majors, education majors, stay at home parents seeking a flexible schedule, and recent college grads seeking part-time to full-time work are encouraged to apply.

Pay Structure:

$70 per article, paid immediately upon completion via your choice of PayPal or Venmo. Sometimes articles will come through that pay less but you'll be notified how much they pay before you write them. They are easier so the pay always correlates with the effort. You'll also get $50 for anyone you refer to the team (we're hiring a lot of people).

Please do not apply if your skills are not well above average. If you apply and have lackluster skills, you will either not get interviewed, will get interviewed but will have wasted your time, or will get hired but promptly fired. You will be working with well above average talent so you must bring the same level of talent to the table. First Quarter Finance is a low stress work environment but we take our roles very seriously.

Next Steps:

Please send a resume and a cover letter with the following:

- What's the hardest challenge you've ever solved and how did you solve it? Please outline your thought process in step-by-step format.
- Which Internet browser do you use?
- What are your best personal finance tips?

And, at the very top of your cover letter, please write 'I am the BEST at what I do'.

Do not contact us via our hiring page as well. Your application will be reviewed no matter where it has been submitted. Contacting us twice will actually hurt your chances of being hired.

We look forward to having you on the team!
