Write for the RPOA

The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA) is the leading educational platform for talent acquisition professionals focused on RPO (recruitment process outsourcing). Our website is the most highly trafficked digital destination for talent acquisition topics in general, and RPO in particular. It’s like being at a conference completely focused on RPO attended by over 10,000 visitors every single month. As a guest blogger, you have the opportunity to position yourself as a thought leader in the RPO and talent acquisition communities.

What are the qualifications for writing for RPOA?

Experience and knowledge in talent acquisition in general and RPO, in particular, are a must for all guest bloggers. RPO is a very specialized field. You must be a subject-matter-expert (SME) in recruiting and talent acquisition in order to provide content of value to our blog.

We do not accept guest posts from freelancers.

Why contribute to the RPOA Blog (aka the RPO Voice)?

  • Establish yourself as a thought leader in the RPO universe.
  • Grow your brand name in the RPO and talent acquisition industries.
  • Promote your content to the RPO community and talent acquisition leaders.

Tell us about yourself.

If you’d like to submit a guest post, we’d like to briefly get to know you first. Fill out the form on this page.  Tell us who you are, what your credentials are as an expert, and why you want to write for the RPOA.

To qualify as a guest blogger for the RPOA, you need to have credible experience and/or knowledge in the fields of talent acquisition, recruiting, or recruitment process outsourcing.

Who is the intended audience?

Our readers are made up primarily of talent acquisition professionals, RPO leaders, and business decision makers interested in talent acquisition topics in general and recruitment process outsourcing in particular.

About your guest post content.

Here are the qualities we look for when evaluating what to publish

Experience: Our ideal guest contributor should have direct experience with talent acquisition, recruiting, or RPO. If not, we look for proven experience as a writer that can thoroughly research or report on a given subject relevant to our audience. 

Evidence: Our audience trusts us to provide credible information. Your article should include at least 2-3 pieces of anecdotal evidence, data, or credible sources to show you've done your homework.

Originality: It is important that the content on the RPO Voice is high-quality and original. Your article should be a minimum of 750 words (not including your short bio at the end). We won’t accept guest posts that have been submitted and/or appeared elsewhere.

Other things to consider

The RPO Voice isn’t a place for advertising your products or services, therefore guest posts should be non-promotional. Guest posts should be written by individuals (not companies) and be free of affiliate links. The only promotional links we allow are in the author’s bio at the bottom of your post. When it comes to writing your guest post, avoid being overly personal (we aren’t a personal blog) and try to stay away from controversial topics like politics, religion, etc.

Any images you submit must be free of copyright or trademark infringement, and all credit must be given to the owner or the creator.

What topics should you write about?

We want to give our readers a range of depth on topics including:

  • Recruitment process outsourcing
  • Talent acquisition
  • Recruiting tactics, best practices, and trends
  • Business strategy in relation to HR
  • HR software and technology related to recruiting
  • Social recruiting and employer brand
  • The economy and labor market


  • Guest posts from non-members are not permitted to have backlinks to their company websites in the body of the article; guest posts will have an "about the author" section at the end of the post with 250 characters and one backlink. Backlinks in the body are an exclusive benefit to RPOA members.
  • All sources must be cited.
  • Use workplace appropriate language, please.
  • We don’t accept posts that are intended as marketing tools for other products.
  • We don’t accept posts with affiliate links.
  • We reserve the right to not publish posts that don’t meet our standards.
