Content Originality and Guidelines
All content must be produced exclusively for TalentCulture and not content, which has been published elsewhere. Content development should follow these guidelines:
- Articles are between 800 and 1,000 words, but depending on the validity of the content, your article can be slightly under or over this range.
- Your article must have evidence beyond your own opinion. Make sure you back up your arguments with data, research, or stories (not just Internet research, please!).
- We observe the AP style of writing.
- Content must be vendor and product-neutral. Statistics or factual claims must be linked to their original (non-advertorial) sources.
- Your article must include an author bio, including a link to a Twitter account and LinkedIn profile. If you prefer, you may use your company Twitter account instead of your personal Twitter account.
- All content is subject to editing to fit TalentCulture style.
- We do not guarantee that your article submission will be selected for publication.
Promote Your TalentCulture Article
We encourage our contributors to promote their articles via social media. For example, you must include “via @TalentCulture” in your promotion on Twitter. All promotion must cite TalentCulture as its original source and provide a link to the post at TalentCulture.com.
Repurposing Your Article
Once your article has published with TalentCulture, it is not permitted to repurpose the article elsewhere. However, including the original link to your TalentCulture article within a newly developed article is permitted. The new article may sit on any other site you wish.
How To Submit
If you have an idea for an article, please email a short “pitch” to email@example.com. Unfortunately, we can’t respond to all requests to submit content, but we will respond to all accepted pitches as quickly as possible, and thank you ahead for your patience!
What Happens After Sending Your Submission
The TalentCulture editorial team will review your article idea. If the theme is a good fit in our editorial calendar, we’ll ask you to send us a full draft. While any substantial changes are subject to author approval, we reserve the right to make small edits for clarity, grammar, length, removal of non-relevant/redundant hyperlinks and any advertorial angles. We may ask you to make changes or add more evidence to support your content. After the full editorial review, we will contact you to let you know our decision on placement and publication timeline. Our goal is to make your big ideas shine!
If you produce engaging, original content about how work is changing, we would love to hear from you.
