Write for Even It Up!

with one comment

Even It Up! welcomes guest bloggers, and you can submit your piece to us via email at evenitup@evenitup.com.au

In order for your piece to be considered, you do need to be au fait with the following requirements:

  1. The Even It Up!  blog is about challenging, interrogating or highlighting the flaws in accepted recruitment practice.   This often can not be achieved without understanding how and why the process has evolved.  Your piece should, therefore and where possible, offer jobseekers some insight into the whys and wherefores. 
  2. We prefer writers with significant expertise or a track record in the area in which they write.  Having an opinion is not enough: you must be able to back it up.
  3. There must be links or citations to credible sources included with your submission, and in the body of your text.
  4. You must include your profile or bio with your submission
  5. While there is no word limit, your piece should be sumbitted with an online audience in mind.  Short, sharp, shiny.  Please include links, and an image or link to image  – we use Photobucket).
  6. Please check spelling and grammar carefully before submitting.  While we don’t profess to be perfect, it annoys us considerably when others are not!
  7. Copyright remains with you.
  8. Unfortunately, we can’t pay you (yet), but you will get great exposure!

  1. you know, it’s really sad. i’ve given this industry 12 good years of my life. i was so sure that if i just did the right thing by the candidate and the client i would eventaully come out on top.

    i always have done and i didn’t.

    want to hear why?

    clients: no matter who they hate (as an agency), no matter how schonky they have been in the past or how much they have ‘done them over’ in fees, if they present a good candidate to a job (even if you didn’t give thewm it originally) YOU STILL GIVE THEM A FEE!!!! All this does is encourage poor performance and bad behaviour. The good agencies, (me) who listens. sends ONLY what you ask for doesn’t call ytou 50000 times a week (as requested) – LOSES. NO FEES. NO COMISSION. thanks

    Candidates – don’t smile – you’re no better! You all still register with them because they have the jobs, the heavily financed backing and the big name, thus the jobs. you will still take a job thru them if it suits your purposes.

    you both don’t believe a wor I say because you have had so many bad experiences so you think we’re all bad. Well guess what would happen if we did that with every candidate or client – a whopping great halt to job placements.

    you need to boycott shonky agencies and get your friends., colleagues and bosses to do the same. then the last man standing will be a good agency (or 3).

    look at yourselves – and ask how you can help fix it instead of playing the blame game.

    I’m quitting my much beloved industry – it’s not what it used to be. Now there are going to be 2 of the good ones left. Treat them well. goodbye.
