How to Quickly Weed Through Freelance Writing Job Ads

How to Quickly Weed Through Freelance Writing Job Ads

When I need a new freelance gig I usually find one in a few day's time. Is it because I have really low standards? No. I get great new gigs quickly because I've gotten job hunting down to a science. A while back, I posted my list of job hunting sites.

Today, I'm going to show you how I weed through them quickly everyday to find the real gems.

  • First, I scan job lists for keywords that target my niches. 

  • I only click on ads with titles that aren't generic like, "Looking for Writer" or "Freelance Writer Needed."

  • Then, I click on the job link and look to see if it is an on-site job or telecommute.

  • If it's on-site I toss it. I quickly look for the per word, per article or per job rate.

  • If it's too low I toss it. If I haven't tossed it yet, I actually read the ad. If it asks for too much work for the fee I toss it.

  • If by some chance the ad makes it to step four I will actually apply for it.
