Write For Us
We’re always happy to accept articles that present a fresh, interesting take on career progression, learning or personal development. If we like your piece and think our readers will too, we’ll get in touch. By submitting an article to Career FAQs, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the author guidelines.
We review articles every Tuesday. So if it’s been over a week since you submitted your piece and you haven’t heard from us yet, it means that unfortunately your article wasn’t selected for publication.
What we’re looking for
We want well-written articles that educate, inform and/or entertain our readers. We get over 1 million visitors each month, so if a quick Google search shows several articles with the same general idea, it’s probably not worth pursuing for our site. Even at the idea generation stage, it might be helpful to think of “5 Rules To Break When Applying For Jobs” rather than “What Not To Do When Applying For Jobs”.
- Be between 500 and 1000 words
- Use UK English spelling (e.g. socialise instead of socialize)
- Have clear, descriptive titles (think about what people would search for to find this article)
What we automatically reject
- Duplicate content that has been published elsewhere
- Articles that contain text-link advertising
- Articles with multiple grammatical or typographical errors
You will receive full attribution in the form of a byline and author bio. We only publish pieces by named authors; multiple authors are also fine.
A single link to an author’s website or social media profile will be included in the author’s bio. Where possible, articles should link to similar content on Career FAQs. All links will be reviewed by our editors and will only be acceptable if they flow naturally within the text and either reference a credible source or closely relate to the topic.
Publicising your posts
We encourage contributors to promote their pieces on social media and other sites. The article may not be published (in whole or in part) elsewhere. We consistently check for duplicate content, and if the article is found elsewhere, we will remove it from our site.
