So, I'm fresh out of high school, I applied to my first job, and got a response! I'll be a freelance writer, writing about tech for a company's blog.
However, my (potential) employer (...client?) mentioned in their last email that the stuff I write may either be published without a name or under the company's founder's name, and I that may not be credited.
This would mean, of course, that I can't list the stuff I write for them on my portfolio/website, and that I can't submit these as examples of previously published works of mine when applying to a future job (which, incidentally, is something that this very company also asked for in applications).
This seems slightly sketchy to me, especially the bit about publishing it under someone else's name. Am I right to be worried? Is this accepted practice?
(I have seen, for example, that all posts on the Stack Overflow blog have the names of the employees who wrote them on the article, but I understand that they're full-time employees and I'll only be a freelancer.)
