Morning Jobcasers ~ I am a writer who was recently asked if I had a portfolio. I'm ashamed to admit I do not, despite having a ton of experience! Any writers in the house? If so, what platform(s) do you use to showcase your work?

Hi Alley Keosheyan - I don't have a public portfolio, but I have a few friends that do. They usually create their... see more

I am a writer and I have written many things, however have not published anything. I need assistance bringing many of the things I write to life.

A mentor, accountability coach, a experienced writer, someone who will be instrumental in helping me evolve as a writer. Thank you way in advance for anyone reading this... see more

6/8/19 Saturday My name is Pete Wehle. I am a Heart Transplant Survivor and I have been writing a great deal. (Here is one of my more recent compositions.)
TRUTH MAKES BROTHERS OF US ALL

My philosophy of life is simple: To love God with my whole heart, mind, and spirit. We are universally all brothers and sisters We are all ONE! That is the TRUTH. We attempt as modern humans to pretend that we have all the answers and therefore... see more

I have applied to many customer service positions, but for some reason telemarketing and similar jobs have rejected me, even though I have over 21 years of retail experience. I wrote a thesis (over 200 pages) which conformed to the Chicago Manual of Style, but writing and editing positions have not found me fit to even be a junior editor. Someone said to me a few days ago since there are more applicants than jobs, employers prefer to hire a... see more

I strive to gain a work from home job. I use to write contributor pieces for a blog but when they got shut down I was out of a job and being it only paid little I had to go back to retail. So now that I’m out of retail I am determined to get an at home job as a writer or virtual social media assistant

I have to first admit, I haven't been in a real job search mode in over a decade. Job changes were almost always due to a former colleague in an influential position as someone who knew my work.

The last several interviews (2nd and 3rd rounds) required obscene amounts of work to produce some kind of documentation for the next interview- whether a 1-year plan, example of work product (not examples of anything I have done, but they would give a... see more

One week I would be writing a post doc research paper and the next week I would be writing an artist's statement to gain entry into a guild. I wrote non-fiction articles for history buff magazines and newspaper articles for African dance troupes. I was a writer for hire and I learned a lot.
