Jobs for Writers: IWOSC Jobline, Writing Work Websites
Jobline, a service that matches writers and employers, is a profitable benefit of IWOSC membership.
Members: It pays to belong to IWOSC. Prospective employers have come to respect IWOSC as a reliable source to meet their writing, editing, proofreading, and photographic needs.
Here’s how it works:
- The IWOSC Jobline Coordinator qualifies the lead and works with the potential employer to develop a job posting.
- Within 24 hours, IWOSC will send out the lead to its current members.
- Members email the Jobline Coordinator to find out contact information for the position.
- Members send a brief statement and/or resume to the potential employer.
- If you receive a job or assignment as a result of a Jobline lead, please let us know.
If you have questions, contact our President, Flo Selfman: floself - at - aol -dot - com.
Prospective employers: IWOSC’s FREE Jobline service can help you meet your temporary or permanent needs for skilled professional writers, editors, proofreaders and photographers.
Here’s how the free service works:
- Send a brief description of your need(s) to Flo Selfman (floself - at - aol -dot - com).
- IWOSC’s Jobline coordinator will work with you to develop a Jobline lead, including job description, position criteria, payment, etc.
- IWOSC will distribute the lead to nearly 300 qualified members.
