Job Post: Write Papers for Other Students, $13/page

Writing in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Ed Dante outlines a job opportunity for undergrads looking to make ends meet:

  • Are you good at writing poorly researched papers that appear erudite enough to fool professors into giving you good grades?
  • Can you write 40 pages a day?
  • Do you research papers with Wikipedia and Amazon reviews?
  • Can you comprehend this message from a client: “You did me business ethics propsal for me I need propsal got approved pls can you will write me paper?”
  • Can you resist the temptation fill in these blanks with madlibs instead of academic jargon: “A close consideration of the events which occurred in ____ during the ____ demonstrate that ____ had entered into a phase of widespread cultural, social, and economic change that would define ____ for decades to come.” (fill in your best answers in the comments)
  • Are you willing to write for 4 cents a word?
  • Do you have no moral qualms with helping people achieve academic success the American Way—by using their wealth to buy it?
  • Then consider working as an Academic Ghostwriter. With the number of lazy students on the rise, business has never been better. Apply today!

    this is what happens when:

    Universities are run like corporations
    Private/Well-funded public high schools aggressively spend money on SAT prep programs for incompetent students
    The internet exists

    And it’s written by a failed novelist. Fuck.

      what does that even mean? hermeneutics – source studies – the validity of which is rejected by postmodernism; the academy – not an academic discipline or intellectual development. i don’t see much straightforward correlation between the different terms you’ve put down and the sequence in which you put them

    This is an incredibly interesting and terribly disheartening article. More than anything, though, I think it’s a cry to each and every one of us students to remind ourselves what we seek to get out of our education and to capitalize on our college experiences to the fullest.

      people who didn’t apply themselves properly in college will suffer later in the job world. their lack of commitment will show.

          Yeah, unfortunately this is not true. The working world isn’t all it’s cracked up to be unless you go into a math/science field. If you cheat your way through college in those fields you’re pretty much screwed…
