Spot On for Talent Acquisition & Development

Freelance Research Writer (Remote + Set Your Own Workload)


FQF is a four-year-old US-centric personal finance website which covers consumer topics such as which stores price match, how to improve your personal finances, company comparisons, and more.

Why Work with First Quarter Finance:

Work where you’d like. Work when you’d like. You’ll be surrounded by an exceptional team operating in a calm yet extremely high-achieving digital environment.

This role is perfect for a professional freelancer, someone who wants part-time work, someone who simply wants extra income, a stay at home parent, a college student, a US citizen living abroad, or a recent college grad.

Job Overview:

  • All topics are provided.
  • Editors let you know up front what needs to be included in an article.
  • You must commit to writing at least one article per week. The sky’s the limit.
  • No need to interview experts though some articles will require you to call stores or companies.
  • Articles are very research-focused so you must be able to do this easily and with an understanding of what is and what is not a credible source.
  • The pay is $80 per article. Some articles will be indicated as being worth less but the effort/pay will be commensurate to the $80 articles.
  • We pay bi-weekly via direct deposit or check if you prefer.
  • You are considered an independent contractor, not an employee.

How to Apply:

Please apply with your resume/CV and a cover letter. In the cover letter, please address the following:

  • If someone asked you to name the best airline in the world, what name would you give them? Explain how you came to your conclusion.
  • Explain Bitcoin in 200 words or less.
  • Include link(s) to writing samples (links to sites, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc).
  • Tell us about yourself.

And, at the very top of your cover letter, please write “I’m a **self-motivated** person.”

This application process is lengthy. But we value long-term relationships so we believe it’s worth the effort for both parties.

Please do not also apply via our on-site hiring page. It confuses us. : )

We look forward to hearing from you.
