One of my favorite sources for how-to type articles is How-To Geek and that's because the articles are well written, concise and full of useful information. The thing is I am already gainfully employed and not looking for a new job. But all you other writers and editors out there might be. If you are, then you will be glad to find out that How-To Geek is looking to hire a “geeky writer”.

To apply for the job you need to have a few skills under your belt, chief among them being proper writing skills and geek-level knowledge of Windows 7, home networking, home routers, security, media, troubleshooting, and many other such topics.

How-To Geek said you should apply for the job if you comply with the following requirements;
- You must be a geek at heart.
- You must be able to put in plenty of time, work, and dedication. If you’re too busy already, don’t apply.
- You must be able to write articles that are easy to understand.
- You must be creative. You must generate ideas for articles on your own, and take suggestions like a pro.
- You must be at least 18 years old.
- You must be able to write tips, how-to articles, guides, instructional articles, etc. We are not looking for tech news writers.


If you think you have what it takes to get a job with How-To Geek, then you need to send an email to the following address i.am.supergeeky@howtogeek.com. In the email you need to provide the following info: name and location (US-based writers have an advantage), previous experience and a writing sample, a brief overview of the topics you are familiar with, a brief overview of the computers and operating systems you have access to (Windows 7 is a must), and last but not least, you need to explain “why your geek skills are worth touting to millions of readers each month.”

So what if Apple is "the competition"? That’s not going to stop Microsoft from creating apps for Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, not when Apple’s iPhone is hugely popular and barely anyone wants to purchase a Windows Phone.
