Reply Quote They just didn't care? Were you just doing essays part-time while working at another job?
It really just wasn't an issue. Either they didn't ask me anything about it and just considered the writing samples as writing samples or they gave me an opportunity to explain that it meant I was very good at short deadlines, handling unpredictable changes in schedules, and that I'm very versatile in being able to produce many different types of writing on different subject matter areas. But I always disclosed exactly what I do for a living and discussed it freely if they were interested; and that included furnishing the name and main address and contact info for the essay companies that use me the most in the Employment History sections of their applications. There really aren't that many people who can do this very well or consistently over any substantial period of time and it does demonstrate a lot of the skills that many employers really need in anybody they consider hiring as a writer. I've always written on a freelance basis since law school, on my own time while employed, and anytime I was in between jobs, relying on it to different degrees at different times. Since 2007, I've been doing it as a fulltime living and absolutely nothing else.
