The new site is WritingForTheEducationMarket.com. This site will be closing soon.
I have been looking for work in this field for about 3 years and actually have landed a few great jobs. However, I just found this web site about a week ago, and it is the best I have ever seen for educational publishing. And I scour lots of web sites. Thanks.
Great leads today!
I followed one of your leads and got a job with EBSCO publishing in Ipswitch, MA. The job was horrible. They paid me 1.5 cents a word--which figured out to be $900 for 2 weeks of work. I only finished the job because I said I would do it and I had nothing going on at the time. They wanted to pay me 1 cent a word, and I balked and they upped my salary to 1.5 cents a word. (Usually I get between $1-$5 a word!) Anyway, I figured they were a small company. Then, a week after I did the job, I saw them advertise at Fenway Park, on the movable signs behind the batter. I vowed never to write for them again. People who don't pay fairly don't deserve good writers.
PS Julie, I still love your blog and I'm hoping one day to score a job I love and that pays well!Thanks--still I had to report on EBSCO because we writers need to know what is going on in the business.
@AnonymousThanks for the information on EBSCO. It is good to keep each other informed.@history teacherI thought you'd like those!Laura
