#BuckFiftyADay: Why I am the Luckiest

During the middle of Game 2 of the 1995 American League Division Series, I called my wife from Yankee Stadium to say goodbye. We'd be going to Seattle for Games 3-5. She said to me, "I think I might be pregnant." We'd been married a year and were hoping to get a family started. "OK," I said. "Let's wait until I come home and you can take the test." The Yankees lost the next three games, which meant I would not be home for a month. So, she took the test while I held on to the phone. Positive! The next four weeks all I could think was that there was no way I could be a dad and a baseball beat writer. Whenever I feel sorry for myself I think about how lucky I was to find a job as a sportswriter that allowed me to be a dad.

You might check out this freelance job: https://www.linkedin.com/jobs2/view/94702725?trk=jobs_jserp_job_listing_text. This company Moravia (moravia.com), based in Czechoslovakia, is an enormous IT company that hires people to do content writing, translation, editing and such for huge software companies. That job above is to write hotel descriptions for “a well known search engine” (when I applied I signed a non-disclosure agreement, but it's a big one). When you apply for the job they give you a series of three tests, and if you pass each subsequent online test, you then proceed to a one-week, paid ($500) training. If you pass the one-week training, you are hired.

You work from home for about 20-30 hours per week, and they say the entire project should take a year to 18 months to complete, so it’s pretty much guaranteed income once you’re in. My friend who works there says the pay is about $50/hour when you're up to speed. She says it comes to about $4000/month.

They seem to be hiring a lot of people; I'm seeing the ad everywhere. But it's not a sure thing to be hired. The application process is intense. I'm in a writers group where quite a few applied and only about half were hired. I think you have to have a certain type of head for it. They are very precise about their style guidelines and technical specs. If you do pass, I think the work can be a bit tedious, and it is not creative at all, but it's guaranteed decent pay for an extended period and there's a great deal to be said for that! Best wishes.
