Does anyone have experience with About.com? I'm interested in applying to be a guide writer and they have a topic which appeals to me. I also have some of the experience required but not with HTML (which they ask for).
In your experience is it a good site? Do you have tips for the application process? How long did it take you to get accepted?
I wondered about that thisisoli. They have a lot of categories available but they seem to only look at a few each week and from that select writers. It seems to me that the selection process could take a very long time.
In your experience, did they take a long time to get back to you?
It took about 3 months each time for a response, I heard the average response rate for each job is around 30,000 applications, but I am not 100% sure of how accurate that is, it sounds fairly reasonable though considering how well known they are, and the benefits package they give.
