Job: Write for Shmoop!

21 Sep
Got this email today– contact Rachel Reynolds at Shmoop if you’re interested in applying.
Dear Dr. Cole,

I’m an editor for Shmoop University, Inc. (, a digital publishing company that aims to make learning fun. Here’s why I’m reaching out to you:

We’ve just launched college profiles ( that provide prospective students with all they need to know to choose the right school for them, from the average SAT scores of accepted students to the hottest hangout spots on campus.

We are huge fans of Loyola University Maryland, and we want to make sure your school appears on our site!

We’re also always looking for talented writers and editors to join Shmoop’s at-large team.

If you know of any students who may be interested in a paid writing opportunity, please forward on this email. Go ahead, distribute it widely. This isn’t some random Yahoo spam; we will offer anyone interested competitive pay for writing a short college profile for Loyola University Maryland like what we have on site. If that first assignment goes well, we may offer the writer further writing or editing assignments.

You can feel free to contact me, or my supervisor, Jonathan Leventhal (, with any questions. We’d be happy to receive specific recommendations of funny, talented writers for this opportunity as well.
