Part Time Writer


Full time work can provide an opportunity to gain experience in different work environments and cultures. March 7, 2024 marked the opening of the Part Time Writer job opportunity, which will end on June 5, 2024. Not knowing the salary, you can negotiate based on the company's approach to workplace equality and gender diversity. This job is in Mission, but you can do it from anywhere since it is remote work.

As a HALSTEAD content writer, you’ll be working on copy for websites, articles, social posts, and more, for various clients. Rather than focusing on only one brand with one message, you will be tasked with jumping between different projects, different clients, and different goals—discovering new skills along the way. You will be challenged with creating a cohesive, powerful brand copy across multiple platforms and mediums. And you will be continuously provided space and opportunities to learn new ideas and push your creativity and craft forward! This position is 100% remote.

Tactical responsibilities, typical day stuff:

  • Produce content that is creative, well-written, and aligned to the client’s strategy.

  • Understand the clients goals, if provided, or uncover the goals, by asking relevant questions and researching, and then collaborate with the team to establish a strategy for each assignment/piece of content, or work independently to complete copy.

  • Work with the SEO team for using specific, relevant keywords; writing for both seo and readers. All writing that lives on the internet is SEO content and will need to be optimized accordingly.

  • Assist with generating titles, outlines, and hooks for content.

  • Perform required research using search engines - referencing reputable websites, company trainual platform, client provided material, internal documentation, as well as “interviewing” expert team members for required facts.

  • When writing job descriptions, referencing client-provided material and job search engine for comparisons.

  • Keep track of and provide sources to support claims in content where necessary.

  • Write great written content– create clear, concise, polished copy that is consistent with our clients (or our own, when applicable) unique tone of voice and mission.

  • Interact with digital marketers, web and graphic designers, ad managers, and project managers, to create and review all content & ensure consistent messaging.

  • Help position the client as an industry expert in their craft, when writing client website copy and blog articles, as well as social copy.

  • Share ideas, opportunities to improve content, without necessarily being tasked to do so.

  • Be comfortable discussing KPIs in collaboration with PMs, web designers, ad managers, seo team, leadership, and supporting team.

  • Examples of efforts for which you will write::

    • Consumer-facing blog posts for client websites

    • B2B offers for websites like our own

    • Email marketing content

    • Social media posts

      Don't apply for any job online without first knowing these vital factors to avoid falling victim to fraudulent job postings. If a job posting seems too good to be true and requires payment upfront, it's probably a scam. Job postings that ask for your personal bank account information are likely scams. Be wary of any job interview process that seems too informal, such as being conducted solely over text or email. Don't hesitate to contact the company to validate the job posting and ensure that they are hiring. To avoid working for a company that doesn't have a good reputation, research the organization before applying for any job. Keep your guard up and remain skeptical of any job posting that seems suspicious or makes unrealistic promises. Be wary of job postings that require you to purchase equipment or supplies to get started. Use a strong and unique password for your job search accounts and change them regularly to protect your personal information.
