How to contribute your expertise and experience in a guest post before a large, terrific community focused on job search, personal branding and career success.
What you can write about
- Your guest post/article must be a new post of original content written in English.
- Your post topic should be relevant to the JobMob Community, ask me first if you’re not sure. For example, I don’t publish news-type articles. If you can cover a topic that I never have (browse the JobMob sitemap to check), so much the better.
- The content of your submission should be appropriate for readers of all ages.
- The post should not come across like an advertisement. You can mention your company in it when relevant.
What you can include
- I don’t believe in minimum word counts, because if a writer has trouble reaching them, it just leads to filler content. Instead, be comprehensive and concentrate on writing an article that includes everything that you yourself would have wanted to know on that topic. The articles that impress readers most and make you memorable are the ones that provide a lot of value, and the easiest way to provide a lot of value – but not the only way – is to write a lot.
- Although you don’t need to use any, images used must be royalty-free and used in accordance with their license. If you own the image, you are granting me a royalty-free license to use it by including it in the article.
- Recommended but not required: together with your article, send in a byline with 3-4 lines about yourself, including an 83×83 pixel photo (or larger) if possible. You can use the byline to mention your business, your website, 1-2 social media profiles (usually LinkedIn / Twitter).
- Posting anonymously is also ok.
How to send in your guest post
- Send your article in an html or Word doc file to guestpost [at] shareselectmedia.com. We’ll get back to you with a yes/no answer or followup questions within 2 business days.
- Do not publish your guest post on your own blog or anywhere else before it appears on JobMob. Once it does appear on JobMob, you may republish it in full (it’s your work after all!) as long as you credit yourself by linking back to the guest post published here on JobMob.
