Research your professional network on LinkedIn to see if any of your connections have ghostwriting experience. If you are not connected to anyone with ghostwriting experience, search LinkedIn with the term "Ghostwriter" to find people who do ghostwriting for a living. Consider sending messages to a few of the people you come across to see if they would be willing to share tips and thoughts on how to break into the business.
Once you have assembled a writing portfolio, research ghostwriting jobs using job boards like Monster and Indeed. Both of these job boards allow you to search for jobs in your geographic area. Carefully read the ghostwriter job advertisements that look good to you, and make sure you have most of the key skills and qualifications profiled. Create resumes and cover letters that are customized to the specifics of the job advertisements.
Ghostwriting involves a lot of input from the person whose name you will be writing under, so make sure your patience level and creative collaboration skills are in tip-top shape.
