We are looking for someone to support me in creating scripts for our weekly videos. Ideally this person would eventually be lead content writer. This would be a full-time position as a contracted worker. Compensation is TBD, but it will be a fixed weekly rate.
Why might you be interested?
You’ll be making massive positive impact on people’s lives
Depending on the day, we get hundreds or even thousands of messages from people thanking us for our videos. Everything from helping employees negotiate a raise to showing someone with low esteem how to feel good about themselves – the amount of good you can do with our audience and platform is staggering.
You’ll have total freedom of time and location
I sleep until noon and write in the evenings. It doesn’t matter what time of day you work, or from what city, so long as you can make excellent video scripts. The only time requirements will be deadlines and calls you have with me to go over the script.
For the right person, it’s super fun
You’re basically a scientist that is breaking ground on what makes people connect with one another. From a discovery standpoint it’s exciting. But it’s also rewarding personally because you can put the things you learn into practice to improve your own life and relationships.
You’ll learn an incredible skillset
This role will give you an education you can’t get in any school in the world. I’ll be personally teaching you about psychology, business, marketing, and of course charisma (though you’ll need a strong foundation in charisma to get the job!)
Who is this right for?
- Is very analytical, especially with regards to social situations
- Is an intelligent, abstract thinker – you need to be a cerebral type, able to comfortably run social “thought experiments” to drive down to underlying principles
- Can organize thoughts clearly – outlining is hugely important for writing a good breakdown
- Gets charisma – you’ll learn lots on the job, but you need to have a sharp intuitive understanding of social dynamics
- Like our videos – if you don’t like watching them, you’re not gonna like spending your week making them!
How can you apply?
If this sounds like you, we’ll conduct the selection process in several rounds. First will be a test breakdown broken into 2 stages. The first stage is detailed in the audio below:
Once you’ve completed that project, send it as an attached Google Doc to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Writer.
Make sure to grant access of the doc to email@example.com so that we can read it.
Submit by: August 15, but we’ll review applications on a rolling basis so getting them in earlier allows us to review faster.
Unfortunately, anticipating the number of responses, we won’t be able to notify all those who do not make it to the next round. So if you do not hear back from us by the last week of August, you did not get chosen for the opportunity. If you do, we’ll notify you of next steps via email.
