Find out what the company is doing and keep Twitter and Facebook up to date with them, and get paid for updates and occasionally asking questions to their following. How do you find a social media job?
Use Kijiji.com and Craigslist.com, even http://www.Elance.com. Or use Google Alerts www.google.ca/alerts to be notified when new possibilities appear.
Self-employed, artists, small companies – they all need a professional biography and they would rather have someone like you collect the facts and make them shine.
How do you get a job writing for these biographies? Again, sign up with Google Alerts or check out the latest posts on www.Kijiji.com, www.freelancewriting.com, www.Elance.com, www.freelancewritingjobs.ca, www.academicexperts.us/freelance_writing.html, or www.Craigslist.com just to name a few.
