We’re always interested in publishing contributions from experts on the hiring process, employment trends, and workplace issues.  Although not every story pitched to us can run, we do review each one and are happy to work with an author whose piece is relevant to job seekers and offers unique insight that we think our readers would enjoy.

Please review our contributor guidelines before submitting an article.

Here’s a rundown of what we look for in submissions:

  • Articles of reasonable length. (If we fall asleep reading it, it’s a no-go.)
  • Tips, how-to guides, and unique stories.
  • An enjoyable read. It’s a blog, not a dissertation.
  • Proper grammar. Typos , texting abbreviations (y u h8?) and slang have no home here.
  • A byline that points us to your published work or presence elsewhere on the Web.

Here’s what we don’t want to see in submitted piece:

  • Jargon. Sound like a person, not like an encyclopedia entry.
  • One big square of endless text. Paragraphs breaks, lists, and quotes are more than welcome.
  • Generic information. We’ve been writing about résumés and cover letters for years. Give us a new spin.
  • A commercial. Don’t spend more time promoting yourself than you do helping the readers.

Feel free to pitch us your idea if you haven’t written the piece yet, send an already written piece to us, or just get in touch by emailing Work.Buzz@careerbuilder.com.

  1. My Point of view while reading any such article its always few things to place in mind by authors “Challenge your ideas. Prejudice, short-sightedness and closed-minded thinking are eliminated when you challenge your ideas and find out other sides of the story. While you might maintain your opinion afterward, finding out what others think prevents closing your mind to possibilities. Writing is a creative work, so it requires challenge to form new thoughts and ideas.”

  3. Actually, what I’d like is for someone to do an article on company monetary bonuses.  Seems most companies, if they do offer a bonus that is money, includes it in their employee’s paychecks.  This increases the tax for the employee leaving them with half or less of the promised bonus.  What the company also forgets is that they pay more taxes also.  The time and paper it takes to cut separate bonus checks is lower than the amount of taxes paid.  Then there is the morale factor.  Why work for a bonus you know is going to be taxed to the point that you can’t really enjoy it?   Employers are hurting morale more than helping in this manner.

  4. I do write articles, and I think its a perfect way to get some extra cash. I’m on the 2nd year of media studies, so its also a good way to boost my media knowledge and skills.
