q

Do I have to pay anything?

Not at all. There are no website-using or application fees.

q

What does it take to start?

All we need is your resume/CV and a writing sample. Once you have those, simply click on any of our “Apply Now” buttons and press “Send” after filling in all the required fields and attaching those documents.

q

What should my writing sample show you?

What have you written in the past year or so that you are the most proud of? Send that over to us in MS Word format. Make sure that the sample is at least 1 double-spaced page long and written on a clear topic. Keep the style as it would be for a common academic citation style (APA, MLA, Chicago) with in-text citations and a reference list. If you do not have anything to send us, we might ask you to write a custom sample paper based on a topic that we choose.

q

Once I apply, how long would I have to wait before the final hiring decision?

Ideally, our HR manager will contact you within 2-3 business days after you have submitted the application. Granted, we receive hundreds of applications every day, so it might take up to 5 days after the application was submitted.

q

Will there be a phone interview?

Yes, there will be. Every applicant can expect a call from the HR manager, so please make sure that the number on the application form is valid.

q

Once hired, what type of work assignments can I expect?

Most of our clients are businessmen or students. Your assignments would be to provide writing or editing services or proofreading their papers.

q

Is there a minimum daily/weekly/monthly volume of work I need to complete?

No. We respect the freedom that comes with the word “freelance”, and we make sure that you are the one who gets to choose how much work to take on.

q

Can I also get work during weekends?

Yes, you can. In fact, we receive a large number of projects during the weekends.

q

Are there any policies or rules that your writers are expected to comply with?

Yes, there are. We have a Rules and Policies document that you will be expected to review and accept as your first registration step with us.

q

After I get hired, will there be a probation period?

Yes, there will be. We will first set you up with short and simple assignments. Once we have a good impression of your work and professionalism, we will send you more complex and long-term projects.

q

In order to start working with you, what essential software would my computer need to have?

For writing, all you need is Microsoft Word. To open and review additional instructions from customers, you will need a PDF reader. We also recommend that you have PowerPoint.

q

What kinds of clients do you have?

You can expect to be working and communicating with students, site owners, bloggers and businessmen mostly.

q

What is the average turnaround for an assignment?

It depends on the project. Some orders require a quick turnaround, such as a few hours, while others might ask for months. On average, the deadlines are approximately 1-2 days.

q

How flexible are your rates? Will I be able to control my bid placing?

Although some assignments are open to custom bids, the majority of our projects already have a fixed price.

q

Once I have applied to complete a project, is that project automatically mine?

No, it is not. Please understand that the job listing is open to all writers at all times. We have many writers to consider as we decide who will get the project.

q

Will I be expected to stick to a formatting/citation style?

Yes. The majority of the assignments stick to either APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian or Harvard format. These are the most common academic citation styles. We will make sure that you are familiar with your project’s style by offering tutorials once hired. You can also find citation guides and manuals on the net.

q

Do clients provide external sources if the project requires them?

Your job will also be to do the research and find credible sources for your assignment unless the customer provides them.

q

If the order is more demanding (extensive research required for example), can I ask for more money?

Yes, you can. When this happens, you are encouraged to notify our support team before applying for the job.

q

Can the customer ask for revisions once the order is completed?

It depends. If the revision request involves more effort on your part that is not given on the original instructions, then you are encouraged to notify the support team. On the other hand, if the revision is justified, then you are expected to tweak the order as needed. The order only qualifies for a free redo if the customer’s revision request is in line with the initial order instructions.

q

How many times can a customer request revisions for one order?

As promised, the customer will receive an original paper based on the instructions and comments given upon submitting the order. You are only obliged to revise the paper as many times as necessary if the order submitted does not adhere to those instructions.

q

If there are additional expenses (such as paying for a journal article or a book), may I request that the customer cover those costs?

Yes, you may. Correspond with your customer through the website and come up with an agreeable solution prior to applying for the project.

q

If I am required to get information from the client’s school library, can I ask the customer for access prior to completing the assignment?

Chances are that your customer will be more than happy to give you temporary access to their online school libraries. You are encouraged to correspond with your customer about this issue.

q

May I call the customer to discuss the project’s details?

We strongly recommend that you correspond only via our secure message system for privacy reasons. Should the customer decide to discuss project details with you over the phone, we will notify you.

q

Must I work in the night hours?

Not at all. We would only advise that you accept “night shifts” if you are money-driven, as we receive many orders that require overnight completion. Naturally, urgent projects give you more money too.

q

Can I expect regular work all year round? How regularly do new projects show up?

Granted, we have low and peak seasons as any business. Winter is usually our lowest point because everyone is on holiday. That being said, our high seasons tend to arrive in the spring and autumn. We recommend that you check our job list often, as we update it every minute.

q

Is there a support team for writers?

Yes, there is. If you should ever have any questions, queries or concerns, you are welcome to contact our support department available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

q

For the papers submitted, what are the copyright laws for them?

Once you have uploaded the completed assignment, you are forbidden from sharing it with a third party. All copyright goes to us upon uploading the project.

q

What media can I use to correspond with the customers?

Check out our easy in-house system for all your communication needs. It is designed for you to correspond both with your clients and the support team.

q

How secure is my personal information when I take on a project?

Your information is secure with us. The only thing your customer might know is your first name. If you are uncomfortable with that, you may also create a professional name.

q

If I write for you, how much can I expect to make per month?

The more you work, the more money you will make. Our top-tier writers earn thousands of dollars each month.

q

How regularly can I expect to receive payment?

Our payment cycle is twice a month: once in the middle and once at the end of the month.

q

What payment method(s) do you use?

You can get paid via Payoneer, wire transfer or Paypal.

q

Do you have bonuses/fines?

Yes, we do. On the first step of the application form, please be sure to check our Rules and Policies for more information.

q

Who covers the money transaction fees?

For wire transfer, we cover the fees for payments exceeding $500. For Paypal, we cover all fees. For Payoneer you do not have to worry about any transaction fees (please note that we do not cover the standard load fee).

q

Once I submit my payment request, how long do I have to wait until I receive the money?

It takes 1-2 business days for the funds to get released after your request has been received.
