In Search Of Freelance Jobs In Report Writing: Hints For Starters

So, you’ve settled nicely into college life. You know your way around campus, everything is cruising along nicely with your course. The problem is cash. Or rather lack of it. Now that you don’t have the constant financial support of your parents things can be tough. You’ve maybe tried a couple of bartending jobs but felt that they impacted too heavily upon your social life for very little pay. You’ve been thinking about putting your literacy skills to good use by doing a spot of freelance writing. How do you find those jobs producing reports?

Word of mouth

Your college campus will be teeming with budding freelancers just like yourself. You can bet your bottom dollar that someone within your circle of friends will know where you can get started. Ask, and you shall get. The good thing about going down this route is that it is tried and tested. You can benefit from the mistakes of others.

Jobs boards in college

Most colleges have a jobs board of some description. Try the student union as a starting point. They will have access to lots of different jobs; including reports. This is also a great opportunity to socialize at the same time.

Online Freelance sites

There are three or four large, reputable sites in which thousands of jobs are uploaded on a daily basis. They are not always the highest-quality jobs, or the highest paid. But they do offer you a great starting point. An effective launch pad for your fledgling career. With these sites, you need to be willing and prepared to start at the very bottom, sometimes for a low pay. Over time though, you can find some quite lucrative contracts. It all depends on what you are looking for.

Ask your tutor

If it is specifically reported that you are looking to write, as opposed to say blog posts or articles. Then because they frequently tend to be more academically based then, your tutor is an excellent person to turn to for advice. They may have contacts that they will be willing to share with you.

Social Media

You could always turn to social media in your quest for this kind of work. Simply pop up a status on Facebook or send a tweet. If you are not already a member of LinkedIn, then I would suggest joining as this can be an invaluable tool.
