We’re assembling an inventory of tutorials for office workers – and we need your help. If you know how to solve a common office issue and can explain the process in a simple and engaging way, we want to hear from you! No need to be a professional writer, you just need to have skills to share.

So, how does it work?

We want written solutions to both simple and tough office issues, and we pay based on complexity and tutorial length. Compensation will go directly to your PayPal account. Don’t have PayPal? Get it here.
