A Note about Applying for Freelance Writing Jobs with Staffing Agencies

Normally, I don’t list jobs posted by staffing firms, but I know this firm from when I owned my editorial staffing agency in NYC back in the late 90s/early 2000s. Also, if you get in good with a recruiter at a staffing agency, they can throw you a lot of work. This firm happens to staff a lot of editorial positions, so it might be worth it to send your credentials in to them – and the rate coming via a staffing agency tends to be more than what many freelancers will command on their own.
