RecruitingDaily receives a high volume of submissions each day. We strive to provide quick turnaround times, with most articles reviewed within 5 business days of submission. New authors should expect somewhat longer turnaround times. We typically publish within ten days, depending on our publication schedule.

Submission Guidelines and Agreement

Here’s what we look for in deciding whether or not to publish a submission: 

  • Talent Acquisition oriented: Write about sourcing, recruiting and hiring best practices, tips and tricks or themes that are actionable for those within talent acquisition. We do not publish general Human Resources or career articles.

  • High quality: Posts should contain high-quality opinion and analysis. Content should be engaging, well-presented and actionable. Posts must include relevant and timely information that could help a reader.

  • Originality: We prefer posts to be original. Content must be original, not plagiarized, and use proper citations for quoted works. If you are writing about well-covered issues or topics, bring a new perspective that others may have missed.

  • Optimized: Search engines play a role as well. We look to incorporate internal and external links. Please try to include at least one link to another article from RecruitingDaily related to your content and at least one link to a reputable source (E.g., Forbes, SHRM, etc.) Ensure you have at least 2-3 subheadings throughout the article. Our editors can assist if you need clarification regarding links or structure.

  • No promotional content: We do not allow promotional content of any sort within articles. Posts cannot include marketing pitches or links to products or demos, services or promotions. “Vendor-neutral” is the phrase to bear in mind. Please get in touch with our Sales team if you wish to submit sponsored content.

  • Compelling title: Your title should reflect the article’s content and entice readers to read the post. It should be brief and incorporate a keyword phrase. Articles that don’t deliver on the title’s promise will be declined.

  • Proofread: All articles must be proofread before submission and be free of grammatical or spelling mistakes to the best of your ability.

We work diligently to select the best articles submitted for consideration consistently. However, the selection of posts can be highly discretionary and be impacted by many factors, including the topic’s timeliness and the number of posts addressing similar themes. We strive to work closely with contributors whenever possible to ensure publication and optimization through open and constructive dialogue. 

By submitting your content to RecruitingDaily, you’re agreeing to the following:

  • RecruitingDaily has exclusivity rights to the content submitted. Submissions cannot be reposted onto other publications until after it is published on and must have different headlines and subheadings. However, we encourage you to re-publish to your blog and LinkedIn with the updated headline and subheadings. 

  • You have copyright permission to use any media embedded in the post.

If you have any additional questions about becoming a contributor, please email [email protected], and we’d be happy to assist you.
