Looking For A Blogging Job?

December 27, 2009
by

Many companies are out there looking for bloggers.  This is a prime example and these come into us here at Bloggers For Hire on a weekly basis. This is a company looking for those looking for a blogging job.

Jason Calacanis is looking for a blogger at This Week In Startups and describes the listing:

“…looking for someone to do a blog post every day or two”

“…looking for someone to do a blog post every day or two for the www.thisweekinstartups.com blog to “keep the conversation moving” between shows. For example, we now have 40 or so companies that have been on the show, I’d like to cover them in between episodes in a wrap up post (i.e. LocalBacon did this, WordPress announced this, etc). Also, maybe a pre-post about an upcoming guests (i.e. Sky Dayton preview).”

I’m curious how Jason will interview for this position and would love to talk to him about what he is looking for in a blogger.  Every company that approaches us has a laundry list of what they think makes a good blogger.  What characteristics do you think makes the perfect blogger?  Companies have a different philosophy than of course the bloggers themselves. I think I will follow this up with some of the things companies have asked in the past and what they describe as their needs and wants, which should give bloggers a better idea about what companies want.  Pay and salary for a blogger is the next biggest discrepancy.

    Hello there,

    I’ve just made my blog public (about a month ago) after writing a private blog for family for approx. the last two years. I would really like to take advantage of this opportunity, but I do not see any application forms etc. on your website. Would you please be able to direct me appropriately?

    If I don’t hear from you in about a week I’ll shoot you an email if you don’t mind.

    Thanks so much!

      The best way would be to go ahead and shoot the email. We go over each blogger individually and then add you to our pool of talent!
