Red Ventures is looking for writers to craft original content covering a variety of higher education topics, including rankings and degree content, career guides, college and career planning resources, student/campus life blog posts, and bootcamps and non-degree educational pathways. They will also work with our editors and copy editors to ensure that all content is concise, grammatically correct, and easy to understand.


We recognize each student has a unique educational path with different obstacles. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to finding and funding your learning. So in 2012, Affordable Colleges Online (ACO) was created to connect students like you, to affordable, high quality education.

We help students identify colleges, programs, and scholarship opportunities that fit their academic and financial ambitions and needs. Our free, in-depth resources include comprehensive guidebooks, student interviews, user-friendly search tools, federal datasets, college rankings, and additional materials created and reviewed by experts in education.
