You are able to start claiming and completing customer jobs on our marketplace under the “New” tab. NOTE: New jobs aren't assigned to you specifically; they're available for all writers. You're not obligated to accept any of these jobs. Our platform is all about setting your own pace!
- Click on a content request for more information.
- You'll then see the deadline, word count, and other important details at the top of the page. Please ensure you claim jobs that you're able to complete on time.

This tab shows all of the jobs that you have claimed and they are directly assigned to you only. You can click each job to open them when you need to refer to the brief while they are in progress.
This is your history tab of all your completed work. The jobs are categorized by their payment date. You can refer to this tab to check the payment cycles for each job and see when you will get paid for each week.
At the top right side of the page of the dashboard home page, you can filter through available jobs for job types and topics that interest you, as well as the length of the jobs.
