Summer is half over, and we are slowly approaching the end of summer jobs ideas. But before we do, let‘s have a look at those that do not require too much advance preparation since there is not too much time for that left - writing articles in particular.

In the era of blogs, people are discovering talents that not too long ago would be considered limited to those who study for several years, go through competitive jobs, and so on. Not any longer really. Today, anyone can come up with a new, refreshing perspective on any topic that potentional employers find interesting.

What do you have to do to become a contributor? Here are some of the usual steps: 

  • Decide what interests you the most and look for relevant websites.
  • Find websites that accept new contributors and get inspired by their published articles.
  • Contact them and get the topics they are interested in and include your CV. Previous experience may give you some extra points.
  • Submit your articles.
  • The articles are usually paid by the number of characters, or words.
