Not just anyone can explain credit cards, investment, insurance and banking in a way that keeps the public’s eyes from glazing over – but then you’re not just anyone, are you? Nay, you’re passionate about, in equal parts: writing and editing; the world of money; and helping people navigate the realm of personal finance. If you’ve been doing the freelance hustle and are looking for a stable job – benefits and all, yo – that allows you to go right on following your passions, this gig is your winning ticket.
The Nitty Gritty
The company provides a wealth of information to consumers on lots of financial topics, including how-to’s, explainers, comparisons, data studies, product reviews and news items. That’s the stuff you’ll create: Leveraging your journalistic skills, you’ll generate story ideas, conduct research, and write polished, bylined articles. You’ll rely on your network of industry sources and contacts, and if you stumble across a knowledge gap, you’ll have ongoing access to a top-flight team of in-house analysts and product experts.
Besides writing crystal-clear, engaging, eminently helpful pieces for consumers, you’ll be something of an editorial brain, cranking out more topics and angles than you’re able to produce on your own, with the spillover going to other writers including freelancers, whose work you’ll lightly edit. You’ll take a hand in developing social-media strategy and content, and you’ll help cultivate partnerships with other outlets.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
Ah, to be doubly blessed, like you are, with both first-rate language skills and real competence with numbers, math and data; for you are the only hope of getting the tribes to understand one another. So it is that you can pore over numbers, understand their stories, and tell them to the people in the people’s language. A core part of your personality is your attention to detail and commitment to excellence, as demonstrated through your track record of producing high-quality personal-finance content in a digital-publishing environment.
To top it all off, you’re what Gramps used to call “a real go-getter,” able to take initiative, chase stories, innovate and look for ways to improve processes and products.
If you have a specific area of expertise within the world of personal finance, be sure to tout it. Knowledge of the insurance space will be particularly welcomed.
This is a fantastic chance for a writer to find a comfortable, stable home without losing the opportunity to do meaningful, creative work that will improve people’s lives.
