How-To Geek Is Looking to Hire
Article by George Norman

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.”
