Dear mylotters, I have been recently recruited for content writing by a software company in my home town. Actually, i applied for the post of developer. But they offered me to join as content writer for promoting their products in website. I really have no idea about content writing and is this worthy to join as content writer? Cheers and regards, forcashksd Happy Mylotting!

I get the impression they want you to write for them but why are they holding something personal of yours before you start? Am assuming this involves reading about their products and giving your input. I think you should give it a try and see if it's something you like.

Well forcashksd, it sounds to me like they want you to write articles to place on their web site. If you aren't too busy, and you have time, it is worth a shot. That is of course if they aren't going to charge you anything, and they are going to pay you to write the articles. Maybe they need someone who knows about programming and that is why they chose you for the position. It is well worth making a phone call. Good luck to you in your decision.

Thanks a lot kykidd! The real hurdle is that they are asking one of my original certificate as a proof for their surety and they will hold that with them till i quit the job!
