Looking for grad students interested in writing a weekly column on grad life (paid)


Recommended Posts

Our web based student journal is looking to hire a current graduate student, preferably someone farther along in their program, to write a weekly column/blog post in the vein of "Surving Graduate School."


From attending conferences to teaching and navigating the ins-and-out of academic life, we would like to work with someone who can speak from experience.


Post are expected to be between 750 - 1200 words and should be on practical topics related to life as a graduate student. For example, one recent post that serves as a good example of the type of material we are interested in has the title "5 Tips for Publishing Your First Academic Article." (See here - http://www.studentpulse.com/blog/posts/51/5-tips-for-publishing-your-first-academic-article/ )


The selected applicant will be responsible for pitching topic ideas and producing an average of 4 articles per month. We would like to develop a long term relationship with this person. In addition to getting paid per post (starting at $50/ea), the author will have their bio and photograph featured on our website and potential for considerable exposure if the relationship works out (5-10k pageviews/mo/article). Superb writing skills and clear communication are essential, in addition to the ability to adopt your writing style for a blog-style format.


If you are interested, we want to hear from you! Email a current CV, writing sample, and three topic pitches (titles are good) to dustin.turin[at]studentpulse.com. Thanks!
