Become a writer for Examiner.com
Are you someone who is passionate and excited about the city where you live? Can you see yourself providing your local community with useful information about a subject you love? If so, then the team at Examiner.com would like to speak with you. This is your chance to become the voice of your community and show off your expertise as a writer for Examiner.com.
Examiner.com is rapidly becoming the online destination for local information, helpful resources and events in 60 major markets across the country. Examiner.com offers unique content that is contributed by passionate people like you, known as Examiners. Writers at heart, they use words and pictures to inspire and inform, to open dialogues, and to help people tackle everyday challenges.
Informed, reliable, helpful, entertaining, and authentic, Examiners are everyday people from a variety of backgrounds and professions. They are college students, civil servants, and retirees, PhDs, musicians, magazine editors and stay-at-home parents. Examiners are your helpful neighbors and local leaders. They are credible resources — the “go to” experts — for local information, helpful resources and events. Most Examiners have full-time or part-time jobs, or are full-or-part time students.
This is not a full-time job. Examiners are independent contractors. This allows them to choose what to write about and when. They write from home, school, or wherever they want. They publish a minimum of four articles per week. Examiner.com does not expect lengthy articles. Frequent, brief posts bring people back and lead to increased page views – an important key to success!
Examiners are paid a very competitive rate based on standard Internet variables including page views, unique visitors, session length and advertising performance. And with the exclusive Examiner tools we provide, you’ll have daily access to see your accrued earnings, so you’ll always know where you stand and how your efforts are affecting your earnings. We’re not offering a full-time “quit your day-job” kind of opportunity, but you can definitely earn a little extra cash from Examiner.com.
Examiner.com provides the training and tools you need to publish and promote your articles. The more familiar you are with Web-based publishing (things like HTML, and uploading photos and video), the faster it should go.
As an Examiner you will have a great opportunity to inform others about a subject you love and to promote yourself and, we hope, further your career. The talented people we’re looking for have local expertise in one of the following subjects:
1. Arts and Entertainment 2.Bars and Clubs 3.Business and Finance 4.Careers and Workplace 5. Neighborhoods and Communities 6. Education and Schools 7. Family and Parenting 8.Fitness and Weight Loss 9.Food and Drink 10.Games and Hobbies 11.Health 12.Home and Living 13. News 14.Pets 15.Politics 16. Style and Fashion 17.Recreation 18.Relationships 19.
