Description:

Got mad writing skills? Do you love writing stories about education? Are you comfortable interviewing school administrators, faculty members and students? If so, we need you.

Social5 is seeking 3-5 talented social media writers who are interested in a brain-stimulating side gig. Think flexible hours. Writing from home. Exploring educational topics. Writing feature stories on students and faculty members. Working with an editorial team that cares about people like crazy.

You would become part of one of the nation’s leading social marketing agencies, which uses freelance talent from across the United States to provide content-marketing for thousands of small businesses. Led by former newspaper and television journalists, Social5 is seeking freelance writers — as soon as humanly possible — to keep up with recent growth. 

EXPERIENCE: A journalism or other professional writing background is preferred, but experienced bloggers and social media consultants are invited to apply. Preference will be given to writers who demonstrate experience in education reporting, as well as proficiency in WordPress and customer communication. 

Social5 also has interest in writers who are proficient in these unrelated industries: technology, healthcare, property management and finance. If you have background with keyword optimization, please mention it in your application. We have additional opportunities available for writers who are familiar with blog optimization. 

RESPONSIBILITIES: Writers will be expected to produce an interview-based blog each week. High performers will demonstrate professional interviewing skills, knowledge of the industry and a compelling writing style that is free from spelling and grammatical errors. We are looking for writers who know how to collaborate with an editor and adapt their writing to the needs of the customer.

COMPENSATION: Social5 compensates writers on a per-blog basis. Writers will receive $50 for a non-interview blog of 600-800 words, $75 for an interview-based blog of 600-800 words, and $75 for a non-interviews SEO blog of 1,000-1,400 words. Talented writers will have additional opportunities to write social media content for other industries. Most assignments at Social5 are recurring on a month-to-month bases, allowing writers to build a long-term income stream. High-performing writers will receive ongoing opportunities to increase their income and take on additional responsibilities. 

CONTACT: Please submit a resume and three writing samples to Chief Product Officer Jeremiah Stettler at jeremiah@social5.com.
