In addition to a complete CV portfolio and strong writing experience, ClearVoice may not accept your application to our marketplace due to the following:

- Your subject matter expertise is not clear. We need to know what you write about. If you are a generalist who covers all topics, explain so in your bio.
- At this time we only serve English-language customers, so we are not looking for non-English speakers.
- Your subject area is too niche, so you won't get relevant assignments. However, we'll keep you in mind for the future.
