About.com is an online neighborhood of hundreds of helpful experts we call Guides.

Every month, millions visit us for help with everything from health care and parenting issues to advice on travel, cooking, technology, and hobbies. We offer them solutions in the form of over two million hand-crafted, original articles, all created by our exclusive network of over 750 Guides; real people who, like all good neighbors, help others so that everyone's life gets just a little better. We're looking for passionate, experienced writers to join this group of Guides, covering one of our available topics in depth.

All About.com Guides are freelancers who work online and set their own schedules, giving them the flexibility to work at the time that's best for them. There are other advantages, too, including a compensation plan that offers a base monthly payment combined with incentives for pageview growth, support from our highly-trained editorial team, and the opportunity to take part in our Guide-focused PR program.

All potential Guides go through a two-part online training program, learning about our editorial standards while writing articles and blog posts and publishing them on a test site through our publishing tools. During training you'll be evaluated by a member of our editorial staff, who will give you comments on your work before making a final hiring decision at the end of the process. You can read more about the process here.
