Thursday, September 10 2009 Freelance & Full-Time Writing Jobs

A lot of the jobs seem to be moving into the full-time category as more organizations realize that they need writers for various ongoing projects. This is making freelance work just a little bit harder to find, but not that hard. If you are looking for work, why not send a note to an organization that is looking for full-time people? They obviously have projects and they may not want to wait on all of them until they have completed the hiring process.
