Mobile, AL (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
Writing jobs are one of the fastest rising forms of employment on the Internet although few people know that this work exists. There are many work at home programs that make promises of monthly income, but there are even fewer programs that actually deliver on the promises. Writing Jobs Online has now launched its new website that is full of companies that are now hiring freelance writers.
The jobs consist of writing short and long blog posts, how-to articles, short stories and forms of business communication. These jobs are designed to help those searching for a legitimate work at home opportunity to find steady employment and receive monthly cash.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics consistently updates U.S. employment data annually. Recent numbers have been reported that show a rise in virtual positions like call centers, online chat support, social media management and freelance writing. It was only 15 years ago when these types of jobs were known as telecommuting jobs and companies like IBM, Microsoft and Cisco helped to fuel the surge in what is now known as virtual employment. The growth of online jobs is something that many companies are watching closely. The cost savings to hire a virtual employee are helping companies to reduce the cost of physical labor.
Technologies like social media, mobile marketing and email marketing are new ways that small businesses and corporations keep in close contact with consumers. A well maintained mailing list can be one of the most useful tools to a company. Part of allure of employees to find online employment is the ability to set hours of working time that correlate to more personal time. An employee that writes freelance articles, blog posts or other correspondence can do so anywhere in the world with an Internet connected device.
The entertainment industry is one of the areas of business that frequently hire freelance writers from around the world. The cost of maintaining a full-time writing staff is now at peak levels. The recent unionized writer strikes have lead more companies to seek third party freelancers to write scripts, commercial ad copy and radio scripts. It is less expensive to hire a freelance writer that does not work for a writer’s union.
Legitimate online writing jobs are usually obtained by going through a placement agency. Writers are typically tested with average typing and writing skills to help reduce the amount of unqualified applicants. A writer that passes all testing can be outsourced to companies that are searching for full and part time writers.
A recent poll of freelance writers estimates that the average writer without a union contract earns $27 per hour working completely online as a freelancer. The Writing Jobs Online website now provides a direct link between freelance writers and businesses in a variety of industries that are actively seeking writers to complete a variety of writing jobs.
