Publishing opportunities and guidelines for contributing content to Quintessential Careers, the Web’s oldest and most comprehensive career site.
We welcome contributions. Please follow these guidelines if you are interested in contributing articles. We seek articles that are original for our site — and for use by our site alone.
Our publishing opportunities are a win-win situation; we continue to generate quality content; career experts can promote themselves through writing articles.
We’ve had many wonderful career experts who have written for us and served as expert interviewees.
We don’t compensate for articles monetarily.
Your article will first appear in our newsletter, QuintZine, disseminated quarterly to a subscriber list of between 6,500 and 8,000 readers. Your article will then remain permanently archived on our site, which enjoys more than a million unique visitors monthly.
The best approach is to submit a detailed proposal (a meaty paragraph describing the angle you wish to take to a particular topic will do).
Please note: We do not accept content disguised as an ad for your business. Spam-based and over-linked articles will NOT be accepted. Your article should contain useful content for our readers. The only place your business will be mentioned in your biography. If you send us articles that are basically a direct-marketing ad for your services, we will reject it.
IMPORTANT: Please review our article archives to ensure you don’t duplicate a topic already covered.
We strive for an article length of 800-1,000 words, and articles may be edited for length. Submissions are, of course, subject to editing for style. Follow Associated Press style.
Once your idea is accepted, please supply a 1-paragraph bio-blurb so you can enjoy these promotional benefits. We’re also willing to run an ad for you and your projects in the issue(s) in which your article(s) appear(s). Please also send a headshot of yourself in .jpg or .gif format.
Submit your article proposal, finished article, questions about submitting articles, or request for editorial calendar to Quint Careers Creative Director, Katharine Hansen, Ph.D.
