Rachel’s List (“Rachel’s List”, “The List”, the “Site”) is a recruitment site and community site for editors, employers, businesses, journalists, writers, designers, content makers, bloggers and public relations professionals. The purpose of our Site is to connect these various parties in two ways: with paid job advertisements, with unpaid Pitch To Me Call-Outs, with ‘shout-outs’, paid and unpaid, and via The Watercooler PR search tool.
The premise is simple: editors, employers and businesses can buy job advertisements to which job-seekers (approved members of the Site) can respond to via the Site. Approved members of the Site can send free ‘shout-outs’ to Public Relation Consultants (“PRs”) and other members, essentially enabling journalists to source case studies, experts and information. PRs can buy a membership which includes limited shout-outs which they can send to “shout out” about their latest content, events, campaigns and projects, essentially maximising their communicative public relations and marketing goals. And journalists / job-seekers can search for PRs via the search tool in The Watercooler.

Content from Users
All User-created content within Rachel’s List exists as one of the following: Job Advertisement, Pitch To Me Call-Out, Shout-out or Private Message.
• “Job Advertisement”: A “Job Advertisement” is a paid recruitment post of a job role in which a User pays to post a job to the Site’s community of users with a forthcoming piece of content (usually, information about the job, the conditions, the criteria and how to apply). The “Job Advertisement” message is displayed in the news feed of any Rachel’s List user who uses the Site or has nominated criteria tagged to the Job Advertisement.
• ”Pitch To Me Call-Out”: A “Pitch To Me Call-Out” is an unpaid job ad designed for editors to request story pitches or to find the right journalist for a specific story commission. Call-Outs are approved by the Rachel’s List team before being posted to the jobs board and the criteria is strict; this category of job posting is only to be used for story pitches and story commissions. All other job listings are paid. Call-Outs, once approved, will be posted to the jobs board and filtered in to the email newsletter alerts.
• “Shout-out”: A “Shout-out” is a status update in which a user requests information from PRs and other members (usually, related to a request for case studies, experts, information, recommendations or to organise media meet-ups).
