What's Your Question?
How to Write a Performance Review
Employers and employees find value in performance reviews. The feedback can range from guidance to praise, thus allowing for both parties to engage in discussion regarding what’s working and what isn’t. It’s for that reason leaders need to learn how to write a performance review using these guidelines.
Regular Feedback is Critical
While a performance review typically has a bi-annual schedule, that doesn’t mean regular feedback in-between those dates shouldn’t be happening. Therefore, look up how to write a performance review sample, and use that as your springboard for regular feedback. In doing so, your employees are sure they won’t be hearing about their performance during their first review. When looking up how to write a sample performance review, you’ll find that they’re comprised of many fundamental components including communication, teamwork and collaboration skills, problem-solving, accuracy and quality of work, dependability, and attendance, and meeting deadlines.
Utilize the Employee’s Job Description
When you’re unsure where to begin, utilize the employee’s job description as a springboard for their performance evaluation sample. In doing so, you’ll can determine if they satisfied all the requirements and responsibilities of the job description’s listings. You’ll also be able to determine if there were aspects of the job description where they were lacking. Be sure the job description is up-to-date before working on the performance review. That way, you’re sure the position hasn’t undergone any changes since the job description was written.
Use Key Points
When writing the performance review, focus only on key points. For example, if the review is about whether or not the employee is achieving their goals, focus on those key points. Examples of performance goals samples include that the employee must complete a certain level of tasks before being considered for a promotion. Some sample resolutions if the employee is not achieving their goals would include that they would implement a strategy for meeting their goals and then set up another check-in with you to assess their progress.
Request Feedback from Colleagues
When writing the performance review, it’s essential to solicit feedback from colleagues who have worked closely with them. This action is often referred to as obtaining 360-feedback because you’re receiving feedback for the employee from his coworkers, boss, and any other relevant staff. Use of coworker feedback samples includes asking employees what they like or appreciate about their coworker, when they thought their coworker did a great job, or what they would like to see change about a situation.
Keep Track of Performance
When learning how to write performance reviews, keeping track of an employee’s performance is part of achieving that goal. You’ll be working with sample performance comments from other employees, as well as logging their attendance, following policies, how well their meeting deadlines, and if they’re achieving their goals. When working on these tasks, you may need a logbook sample that includes information about their daily job performance. For example, the ledger sheet sample could consist of information about if accidents occurred if it’s a factory or cash overages if you’re in the retail industry. It’s essential to keep policies on-hand, like a cash management policy sample or sample IT policies, for example, to ensure they’re up-to-date and ready to present during the performance review.

Are you a self-motivated, highly imaginative, hardworking, passionate writer with a love of writing romance stories? Whether they be simmering and steamy, or sweet and wholesome? If you answered yes, then we may have a place for you on the Publish Pages Romance Writing Team!
We are looking for professional and experienced freelance romance ghostwriters who want to keep their schedules full of fun and exciting projects so that they can write in the peace, safety, and comfort of their own home. Writers with paid experience are strongly preferred.
You must be knowledgeable about the romance fiction market and be able to write with the market’s preferences. This means captivating and memorable romance fiction that provides elements of suspense, tension, believable and flowing dialogue, and compelling characters, and great character development. We expect you to be able to write professionally and self-edit your work.
As this is a ghostwriting job, you must be comfortable writing on behalf of a client, and you will release all rights of the finished work to the client. You will not receive direct credit for your written work.
Our service rate is $15 per 1,000 words. Projects range from 10,000 to 200,000 words, giving your great earning potential.
If you agree with all of the above, then read on!
What are the benefits of ghostwriting with Publish Pages?:
- You can work from the comfort and safety of your own home, on your own time
- When your project is completed, you will be paid a week later
- We will keep you booked and paid with new projects, no need to struggle to find gigs, bid, or compete for jobs
- As long as you produce high-quality work, we will have a job for you!
- You must be a native English writer and speaker currently residing in Canada, The United States, Australia, The United Kingdom, or South Africa. If you are a native English speaker living abroad, feel free to apply. We expect all work submitted to be in Standard US English.
- You must be a deadline-oriented freelancer, our clients have time-sensitive projects, and as such, you must be able to meet their strict deadlines. As such, we require our writers to have an average writing pace of 2,000 to 3,000 words per day. (Of course, you will be given adequate time to complete a project).
- You must have a great understanding of the romance fiction niche, what romance readers want, and how to write with the market in mind. Example: Most romance readers don’t like stories that romanticize abuse, or stories with partners who cheat, etc.
- You must only apply if you have long-term availability.
- You must be available throughout the day to be able to respond to the project manager and any messages from the client.
- You must be responsible, reliable, with open and honest communication, and willing to build strong relationships with our clients.
I’m ready, and I want to apply!
If you’re ready to apply for the position, please answer the following questions in an email to us ([email protected], please write: GHOSTWRITER APPLICATION in the subject line). Start out by telling us a bit about yourself! (Prior occupation, interests, favorite books, favorite book protagonist and why, and favorite antagonist and why, any other fun facts about yourself that you’d like to add).
Choose three romance subgenres you are the most comfortable and interested in ghostwriting. Then submit three 2,000 word samples of your writing for each subgenre. Please also let us know which subgenres you feel most uncomfortable or disinterested writing in, and let us know the reason why.
Your submissions must be in doc, docx or pdf format. Please be sure to double-check your submission and application for grammar, spelling errors, flow, etc. The sample must be your own original work, and you must still own the copyright to these works. (This means you cannot submit something ghostwritten for a client for this application).
