Help Wanted at Benchmark Reviews

Benchmark Reviews (Still) Needs Technical Writers!

As of September 2013, Benchmark Reviews is seeking technical writers who can complete timely hardware review projects for our website in fluent English. We are also seeking a dedicated news person to post technology news on our website.

Technical writer (reviewer) position qualifications:
  • Applicant must be at least 21 years of age
  • Above-average grammar and writing skills are required
  • 6.0 Megapixel or better digital camera with tripod
  • Excellent knowledge of professional-level image editing software
  • Must be financially responsible for product cost if not completed timely
News reporter position qualifications:
  • Applicant must be at least 18 years of age
  • Above-average grammar and writing skills are required
  • Basic knowledge of image editing software
Benchmark Reviews encourages everyone who qualifies to join our team, but only the most dependable people will make the final cut. After all, we want to find long-term members who would like to grow with the site, and benefit from developing incentives down the road.

Positions are not paid, but instead you will be allowed to keep what you review. New writers must complete their first project on a self-supplied item or topic, and then Benchmark Reviews will offer sponsored products for review thereafter. News reporters are compensated with computer hardware and consumer electronics.

Most articles are allowed 3-4 weeks from date of receipt before they become due. However, any time you fail to review a product within this period it must be returned in brand new condition at your expense, or a replacement must be purchased and shipped back to us for re-assignment.

Writing for Benchmark Reviews is very time-intensive, so please consider the amount of free time you have. Interested candidates should fill out this application form and return it to the address listed. We will review your information and send you our contract if you meet our qualifications.

UPDATE: We accept applications from writers world-wide.

While most of our sponsors are located in the US, some will ship to other countries. We currently have writers based in the UK, Australia, and Canada.

Olin,
Could you be more specific on what the News Reporter job will entail? I may be interested in either or both, but I need to know some specifics due to time constraints on my end. I'm a professional photographer with a studio, print publications, and over 20, 00USD in photo equipment including an 8000USD main camera, and a bench for computer testing. I have a minor in English and a BA in logical analysis. My first computer was some sort of MAC in 1983.

The news reporter position would include receiving press release and affiliate review news via email, and publishing them the appropriate sections of this website. They would also be responsible for collecting and posting tech-related news from a variety of online sources. In most cases, images are provided by the news source and only minor editing such as resizing is necessary. This position could take up to one hour daily to complete.
