To help carry out Shmoop's (mostly benign) plans for world domination, we're looking for a talented Project-Based Content Writer with a passion for teaching journeyman and master electricians.
* Experience with the Journeyman and Master Electrician Exams and appropriate test preparation. Applicants should be familiar with the format and procedure of the exam and be able to describe a number of test-taking strategies and tips.
* Extensive knowledge of the material tested on the exam. This includes basic math skills, relevant vocabulary, steps in electrical procedures, general electrical standards, and an understanding of various reference tables. Applicants should also have mastery over the nine major categories included on the exam: Grounding and Bonding, Raceways, Conductors, Special Occupancies and Equipment, General Electrical Calculations, and so on and so forth.
* The ability to write cohesively and concisely while also being conversational. We're looking for a well-written yet accessible study guide from which any student can benefit.
* The capacity to create original and appropriate drill questions and practice exams that comprehensively match the electrician exams. We want to prepare students for what they will actually encounter on the oh-so-intimidating test day.
* A smashing sense of humor, because we're trying to make studying for this exam as fun as possible. Hey- we never said this job would be easy, did we?
