Submit Articles to the Executive Career Brand Blog
We’re looking for guest posts and infographics for our popular executive job search and career blog. In return you get a short bio with a valuable back link to your website. You also get extra exposure through regular sharing of your post on our social media channels.
Topics to write about are anything related to executive job search, personal branding/executive branding in job search, and executive career management.
Original articles only. No duplicate content that’s already been published elsewhere.
Must be good, high-quality English that doesn’t require a lot of editing.
We can’t accept articles from other job search/career coaches or content writers (resumes, LinkedIn profiles, biographies, cover letters, etc.) or any other practitioners who offer similar services to ours.
We reserve the right to edit as needed. Published articles become the property of Executive Career Brand and can’t be published elsewhere without our permission.
If we use your article, we’ll need a 25-50 word bio, a head shot if you have one, and a link to one of your websites or social media pages. Bio, with one do-follow back link to your website, will be part of the article, at the end.
We will promote your content on our social media channels, and expect that you will do the same.
To further increase exposure of your article, it will also be published at a later time on our sister site, the Executive Resume Branding Blog.
Minimum of 800 words and a maximum of 3500 words
Include a 6 to 12-word headline with the main topic/keyword in it. It should compel the reader to want to read. Don’t get too crazy with the headline because we’ll probably edit it slightly anyway.
The opening should make the reader want to continue reading. For instance, you could open with a problem facing executives in job search or their careers, and provide solutions.
Use sub-headings to break up your article. Sub-headings also give the reader a chance to scan the article to see if they want to continue. These should also compel the reader to want to continue.
Finish the article with a conclusion that reiterates the main points or takeaways of your article.
Aside from the one link to your website in your bio, you may include links in your article if they are used to give credibility to the article, preferably from domains like .gov, .edu, .org, or high authority .com domains. No promotional links are allowed. We reserve the right to edit links as we deem appropriate.
Formatting and Images
No special formatting is required.
Images are not required but you can submit them if you have them, as long as you have the right to use them or they are in the public domain. Otherwise, we’ll supply images for all articles.
