Content Current has freelance writer jobs available for content writing, forum posting and custom writing tasks. They pay weekly via PayPal and have some really nice features. The pay is a little low, but they DO pay and it may be a good place for newbies to get some experience. There have been many comments on various blogs and forums regarding this company, both good and bad. I'll share my experiences below.
From the website:
"As a Content Current writer you will be able to pick the writing tasks that you like and submit then through our easy-to-use interface.
There are thousands of writing tasks waiting to be completed on ContentCurrent right now.
Our writers are on a merit based system -- clients get to review your work, and the better your reviews the better your rewards."
The site works in a similar fashion to Textbroker. Clients post requests and you can claim up to five jobs at a time. You are given a keyword or keyword phrase from which to write an article. Visit the Writer FAQ's for more information on how the site works.
After you sign up on the website, you'll be given a test article to complete. You are not paid for the test article. It is used to evaluate your writing skills. If you are uncomfortable with this, you might not want to apply for Content Current. However, I don't think it's a big deal if you want to be hired by the site. The article has to be 500 words and it's on a topic of their choosing.
I made it to this phase of the hiring process but didn't complete my test article in time, so I was denied. You only have one week to do the article before your application is declined. Before you apply make sure you have the time to write an article for free. My assigned article would have required more research than I had time to perform for free, so consider this first.
Once your test article is approved you can begin to claim assignments. Although I have not personally written for Content Current, I can say they have a good reputation and I've spoken to several writers who are happy here. The pay is, from what I understand, $5 - $8 per article. The pay is not listed on the site before you are accepted and each assignment can be priced differently.
If anyone has any more information on the pay or availability of work at Content Current, please comment. Your knowledge would be appreciated.
Visit the website to apply. Good luck!
