Although I seem to have picked up a number of different roles since turning my back on the rat race, on paper, and according to my bank statement at least, I am a freelance writer. And I love it, it’s the best move I ever made but one of the downsides is that like many freelancers in this field, I find myself in a perpetual state of looking for work. Jobs are generally short-term or one-off and so you are always looking for enough work to fill the week. I guess it is no different to being an actor, musician or any other commissioned creative type but the search for work does expose you to the realities of the unrealistic expectations of bloggers and website bosses.
The amount of jobs I apply for that seem great until you ask about the payment is ridiculous as the standard response is generally something along the lines of ..” there is no monetary payment, but you have the chance to get your work read by a wide audience and be part of something exciting and new.” What that means is we want your work for nothing and an extra 100 people may get to read it. It made me think of what a job in the real word would look like if the same attitude were applied.
Wanted Administration Staff!
Do you want to make a difference in the office world? Do you have what it takes to put paperwork in alphabetical (and sometimes alpha-numeric) order? If you think you can make a difference then we want you to work for us.
If you would like to work close to filing cabinets and put exciting pieces of paper into logical sequences then we would like to hear from you.
There is no payment for this job but you will have the chance for your filing to be appreciated by other, much better paid, professionals who have worked with some of the top data input and tele-sales teams in the county.
Many of our staff have gone on to work unpaid with some of the shiniest filing cabinets around and one even once was given a bottle of sherry as a thank you for fixing a broken runner on one of the drawers.
Contact us today and be part of the revolution that is taking place in the world of (voluntary) organising archive paperwork.
