Finance writers create content or reference materials in the realm of money, budgeting, insurance, stocks, accounting, and anything related to finance. They are competent professionals who educate an audience and guide them to make informed decisions.
Our writers cover a wide range of topics such as fintech, personal finance, banking, wealth management, crypto exchanges, real estate, investments, and financial news for various B2B audiences. Their writing formats are diverse -- from articles, landing pages, and social media to whitepapers, thought leadership, market commentaries, analytical pieces, and other collaterals.
1. Create a job description that stands out. According to LinkedIn, it could be good news that 99% of job descriptions are long and boring because it would be easier to stand out with a compelling job description among a sea of boring ones.
Finance writers are seasoned professionals, and they probably get offers here and there. A stellar job description that stands out is one that is simple, concise, personalized, and candidate-centric yet authentic enough to give them a snapshot of who you are.
2. Provide enough resources about who you are. When a candidate is applying for a job, they of course decide based on what the company’s like, which they usually judge on your website and introduction.
According to Low6 Chief Marketing Officer Josh Turk’s statement in Keynote Search, “Listings accompanied by a recruiter video received 38% more high-talent follow-through applications, than those without. A refreshing take on this approach is to not only explain what your business does but to illustrate.”
Therefore, give your potential hires more opportunities to get to know your company and what it’s like to work there. Remember, you should let them know that there’s something in it for them too. Creating another channel to get to know your company helps you stand out from the rest of the listings.
You should look for a finance writer with subject matter expertise in your specific business, but have enough knowledge to reference a wide range of financial topics. They must be competent writers who know enough about digital marketing, SEO, and various CMS/writing tools.
