For the past three years, Argentus has worked to provide relevant, engaging and informative content about the Supply Chain talent picture in Canada. As a boutique recruitment agency specializing in Supply Chain, we’re committed to writing about the issues that are relevant to our network of candidates and clients: personal branding and hiring tips, salary information, thought leadership, industry trend analysis, insight about the education of the next generation Supply Chain talent, and so much more.

Over the past year, our blog has included interviews with Senior Executives from all corners of the discipline in a number of industries. We’ve provided our own expertise to Global News, Recruiter.com, the SCMA, and other outlets. And we’ve published Guest Blog posts from Supply Chain information technology giant Kinaxis and skilled professionals in Strategic Sourcing and other disciplines looking to share their opinions and expertise with the Supply Chain community – a high-impact, high-demand niche of which  Argentus has been a central player for more than a decade.

As part of our blog’s continued progress and sophistication, today we’re issuing our first ever official call for guest bloggers!

A guest blog is your soapbox to speak about what’s most engaging, puzzling, exciting, concerning, or just downright interesting to you about the world of Supply Chain.

Candidates in the middle of a job search who have participated in our interviews and offered guest blog posts have benefited from the exposure, securing jobs at top companies. But even if you aren’t actively looking for a job and the career benefits that exposure to the Argentus network provides, there are tons of other great reasons to consider contributing: you’ll be participating in the ongoing conversation in the Supply Chain field. You’ll be sharing your expertise with an eager audience of top professionals and hiring managers. You’ll be able to post your Guest blog on your LinkedIn profile and other social media as an example of thought leadership, which is a boost to your personal brand. And finally, it’ll be fun. Previous guest bloggers have immensely enjoyed working with the Argentus Editorial team to hone their message. 

Note: if you’ve got a great background / interesting angle on Supply Chain but aren’t confident in your writing ability, we’re happy to interview you instead!

Submission Guidelines:

To submit as a guest poster to the Argentus blog, you should be a professional in the field of Supply Chain Management or one of its related subdisciplines, including: Procurement, Vendor Management, Logistics, Strategic Sourcing, Operations, Demand Planning, and Supply Planning.  Alternatively, you might be a hiring manager with experience hiring for Supply Chain roles. Beyond that, there aren’t very many other restrictions! Blog posts are typically 750 words. All we ask is for a brief pitch before you submit your post.

Here are some sample topics to get you thinking:

  • What advice do you have to new Supply Chain Professionals or students considering entering the field?
  • What significant hiring challenges and pain points are you facing in the search for Supply Chain talent within your organization?
  • Which technology will be most disruptive to Supply Chains in the next 5 years?

 

If you don’t have any specific ideas for posts but are interested in contributing, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’ll be happy to work with you to help identify guest posting topics that suit your expertise. If you would prefer to introduce yourself via email, please feel free to email Sam White at swhite@argentus.com. We can’t wait to hear from you! logo_icon
