*We no longer accept posts aimed at job seekers. If you wish to contribute to the Next Generation blog, your post will need to demonstrate expert knowledge of the industries we operate in. For example, rather than write a blog post titled "5 Tips For Writing The Perfect Digital Marketing CV", we would prefer a blog post that focused on changes within the industry that marketers should be aware of e.g. "5 Unbeatable Digital Marketing Strategies To Implement Today".
Your article should contain actionable tips, tactics, strategies and advice related to the industry you're writing about.
