We found your true crime dream job – you’re welcome.
We know you’ve spent your quarantine catching up on Dateline episodes you’ve missed and watching every true crime documentary that drops on Netflix or Lifetime. You’re obsessed with true crime like the rest of the world. You got to fulfill your addiction.
But how about getting paid over three-hundred dollars a day to fulfill your addiction? There’s a dream job for all you true crime fanatics out there that you definitely need to know about.
Getting paid to watch true crime all day
FreeUp, a network meant for freelancers, is helping a client find their perfect match of a true crime super-fan. Said company is looking for a freelance writer dreaming of spending their days writing about true crime docs, TV shows, and podcasts.
Naturally, you’re going to still have to watch and listen to all the true crime shows you’re already addicted to. But through this job, you can write long and short form articles about your thoughts on said true crime shows.
You’ll also be creating social media content around true crime, cultivating a social media presence dedicated to all things true crime. All this work is to help said website launch in the fall, for your work to be immortalized online forever.
A decent commitment
It’s big bucks for not a whole lot of commitment. Since it’s a freelance opportunity, you’ll be doing all this only two days a week, making $350 a day. That’s $700 a week for six months. And you can do it from the comfort of your home in your pajamas.
Plus, they’re only looking for about 10 articles a week based on what they’re paying you, so there’s plenty of time to fit in bingewatching in between articles. The best part though? If you love your new job so much after the six months is up, the website is willing to look into extending your contract depending on how your work is.
The perfect job for true crime aficionados
FreeUp is a website dedicated to getting freelancers their perfect job, and even the VP of Strategy Matt Harrison recognizes what a golden opportunity this job is for people. “You can just feel the passion from everyone working on this project and we would love to do the company the justice of finding a writer that matches their level of passion for the true crime community.”
But he has a piece of advice if you’re willing to apply: This is not the time to try something new on your resume or mess around with your qualifications. “This is going to be a dream job for a lot of people and we’re anticipating a lot of applications so I would urge any candidates to triple check their submissions before sending.”
If you’re interested in applying for this dream job, you can do so on FreeUp’s website here.
Of course, we here at Film Daily also have plenty of openings for true crime fans, TV bingewatchers, and people following world events. If you’re interested in writing for us, you can learn about our Fellowship Program here.
