I must apologise. I have dropped off of the blogosphere for a while as I haven’t even had time to read any, let alone write any. I have joined a new venture, Unicornjobs.com, and as we head towards our soft launch time seems to be one of those things I just don’t have any more. However, I feel a virtual slapped wrist coming my way and so as my teacher friends keep telling me – I must try harder.
Anyway, I don’t want to talk about my part in Unicorn Jobs for a while – there will be much to reveal but all in good time.
In the meantime, we are on the hunt for some bloggers and where better to find bloggers than on the blogsphere?
Here’s the details…. drop me a line if you’re interested.
unicornjobs.com is a new graduate careers website – the one-stop guide for students and recent graduates looking for advice on how to choose, pursue and succeed in their chosen career.
With a ‘soft launch’ in November 2007, unicornjobs.com will include articles on all key job sectors, with guides on how they function and how you can get into them, plus interviews with people working in those sectors, and those who recruit for them.
In addition to news stories and articles, unicornjobs.com will also include a blogs section where readers will be able to read the opinions and about experiences of various people involved in the website, including our editor, publisher and recruiter.
We will also include blogs from people embarking on their chosen careers – either final year students currently going through the ‘milk round’, or recent graduates starting their first jobs.
We are currently looking to recruit:
• someone who started work this year on a formal graduate recruitment programme – ie some who has started work as a graduate trainee.
• someone who has recently started their first job after graduation, but who isn’t on a formal graduate recruitment programme.
If that sounds like you, read on…
What we require
Our bloggers will:
• write honestly and entertainingly about their experiences of their first job after graduation.
• identify interesting topics to write about.
• blog at least twice a week on relevant topics, writing between 100 and 300 words each time.
• submit coherent spell-checked copy.
• write within unicornjobs.com style guidelines (these will be very flexible for bloggers).
You will email your blog entries to our operations manager, who will arrange for them to be uploaded to our site.
What we offer
Blogging on unicornjobs.com is a great opportunity for anyone looking to develop their journalistic skills. You will have your work published on a high profile new careers website, plus receive ongoing feedback from our experienced editorial team, and direct access to our career advisers. We pay each blogger a fee of £25 a month. Our bloggers write under a pseudonym allowing them to be honest about their experiences in working life.
How to apply
If you are interested in becoming a blogger for unicornjobs.com email your name and CV plus a first blog entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, telling us which blogging spot you are applying for.
From time to time we will recruit other bloggers. If you have an idea for a blog which thing will interest our audience of graduate jobs seekers, please get in touch, ideally with a sample blog.
