I’d say this is one of the best sites for any beginner. iWriter is one of the most accessible places to find online writing jobs. Currently, you sign in and have to do a small test, then you pick articles and start writing once you pass the test.
There’s also a rating system with iWriter. You make more money as an Elite Plus writer and little money as a Standard writer, which is where you begin. Consistent, quality writing will increase your ratings.
This will then increase your earning potential. It may also lead to requesters asking you to do their projects for them individually. Joining the site is absolutely free.
The BloggingPro job board is mostly for bloggers. On this site, you can blog about almost anything. Here several employers are looking for people who can write on an array of subjects.
You can browse for jobs using categories, and when you find the job you like, you send an application. Most employers will request for previous works as a reference.
There is no membership for this site, so you deal with employers directly. Also, as there is no direct moderator, you may find some scammers. I suggest verifying that an employer is legit before applying for a job.
