Remote and flex jobs

If you’re in the market for remote/virtual or flexible job, two of the best job posting sites out there are Virtual Vocations and FlexJobs.

The job postings include part-time, full-time, remote, and contract.

You can access both to browse jobs, but you have to be a paid member to access the full postings.

I’ve used both and have gotten decent gigs through them. Highly recommend.

Winning your way onto the screen

Here’s one for my fellow screenwriters out there. MovieBytes is my go-to for all the info on upcoming screenwriting contests, including:

  • Full details (objective, rankings, deadlines/entry fees, discounts if available, awards, etc.)
  • Contest directory (sorted a host of ways, such as: most significant, regional, festival, free, etc.)
  • Contest calendar (final deadlines only)
  • Deadline alert on the righthand column
  • Contest news
  • Info on winning scripts (writers can add to the database where producers/agents/managers can access them)
  • HollywoodIQ (news and interviews from the industry)
  • Free newsletter delivered to your inbox

Let the work come to you

If you’re on the hunt for work, this is a good resource: Freedom with Writing

It’s free and delivered to your inbox several times a week. The email magazine includes:

  • Paid publishing opportunities
  • Case studies
  • Calls for pitches
  • Jobs for writers
  • Contest information, including upcoming deadlines

It’s well worth the time it takes to type your email address. I highly recommend.
