As mentioned last week, because you've posted articles, photos or video to NowPublic, our sister site, Examiner.com, is now personally inviting you to also become an Examiner for the US or Canadian city where you live - chose from 160 - or for one of the two national editions. If you live elsewhere, we will extend future offers only if you're eligible.
Examiners are local insiders with specialized expertise about a particular subject who want to share it with their neighbours.
In return for your commitment, you will:
• publish to a network with 17 million readers • earn good pay for views, visitors & ad clicks • get $50 per accepted applicant you refer • add to your resume or professional portfolio • choose what you cover within your topic • receive access to free Web training • be able to network with 20,000 Examiners
Apply with a bio and 300-500-word topic sample (perhaps from NowPublic) and demonstrate your:
• comprehensive knowledge of the topic • excellent writing skill, style, form, and accuracy • ability to access to timely, accurate material • interest in posting 3-4 articles per week
An Examiner Channel Manager will contact you in 5-7 business days. Know someone else who would be an ideal Examiner? Refer them here!
Want the best of both worlds? Stay tuned to learn about new NowPublic opportunities in the weeks ahead, otherwise we'll see you onsite making news!
I thought it may be a good idea to examine the examiner, they have bought a news community where people did not wish to be paid for their publications or news gatherings for debate.
They are now trying to tempt the members of a well established news community to be paid for their publications as part of a network of cheap labor free lance journalist. The incentive of US$50 dollars being a tasty looking morsel.
Its been my understanding that most members that use this news community do so out of pleasure and that making money is not what temps us here. We mostly get on well with each other though our opinions and views some time differ.
My question today will not only be interesting to readers, members but also to the administration of the examiner.
Do you think that the owner and the administration of the examiner judged the membership here incorrectly and thought many of the writers the very best talent (please don't include me when assessing) could be tempted by money and more readership?
My opinion is yes!
