Who wants to be a guide?!
Journey from mountains to the bottom of the ocean – well NOT this kind of guide, but a Guide for About.com.

About.com is hiring guides to build and maintain a ‘GuideSite’. Look at the quote below on the requirements:

  • Original content (articles, reviews, FAQs, tutorials) written by you
  • A blog featuring your unique voice and personality
  • A directory of the best content in your topic, whether it be your own work or links to other sites
  • A discussion forum where you serve as community leader



Guides employed by About.com will sit for a 17 day online training program, where they will learn how to use About.com tools and from these tools they will create their GuideSite.

Now comes the interesting part. After graduating from the training, you will be able to earn at a minimum of $500 per month. Higher page views will increase you monthly pay. About.com claimed that they have Guides earning in excess of $100,000 a year (now were talking!).

The Guides are required to publish a full-length article every 14 days and update their blog at least three times a week.

To apply to be a Guide, simply click here. I’ve already submitted my registration, so don’t wait any longer!

Hello,

Thanks for applying. We have received your application to be an
About.com Guide for Web Logs. We receive hundreds of Guide applications each
week so, while we strive to review all applications as quickly as
possible, it may take up to 8 weeks before you receive a response.

Please do not resubmit your application until you receive a response
from us, because that will only delay us further.

We look forward to reading your application soon.

Thank you,
About.com Editorial Team
