    Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen! Let’s talk business.

    It may not score you conversation points at a cocktail party or family gathering, but your job is a source of great experience and knowledge that you can share with others. What industry do you work in, and what advice and tips can you offer to others about working in that industry? What personality traits are most beneficial for working in the food service industry? What types of training and education are best for working in engineering? What are some helpful tips for getting a job in finance? We invite you to share your advice on your field of employment for our new Topic page, Career Fields.

    Ideas for exceptional Hubs include descriptions of job types within a particular field or industry, tips for getting a job in your field, and advice on training and preparation to work in a specific field.

    To join in on this week's challenge by writing a Hub, follow these steps:

    1)    Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question.
    2)    Click the green "answer this question" button.
    3)     Instead of answering the question in short form, click the gray "make a Hub about it" button. 
    4)    Give your Hub a title that follows our guidelines on crafting successful, competitive, search-friendly titles, which namely involves...

    A. Creating a title that is short and descriptive, matching what someone would type into a search engine when looking for information on the subject.
    B. Researching the keywords (the things people might type into search engines) by Googling them to make sure that the topic is not already extensively covered online and that you can beat the top results.
    C. Covering a subject about which you are particularly passionate- or in which you have unique, useful expertise.


    5)    Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
    6)    Make sure the images you use are legally used and properly attributed so that your Hub has a chance of being selected as a Hub of the Day.
    7)    After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this Forum Discussion and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.

    For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.

    This was my first time ever doing a weekly topic inspiration in all my time here. I love my work so this was a great topic for me. I have a small business doing foreclosed property inspections. So that is what I wrote about. Find it here.

    What a great idea for a weekly topic!  This gives everyone a chance to write what they surely know about!

      Thanks, tillsontitan! I like adding a lot of variation to the Weekly Topic Inspiration each week so that there will be a lot of options for Hubbers with different interests. smile

        tillsontitanposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        So, you can even "submit" hubs you've already written?

          Christy Kirwanposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          Yep, as long as they're on topic. Helping with ideas for new Hubs is the main goal of the WTI, but sharing information with other Hubbers and getting the community experience is also a major part of it, so if you've already written an on-topic Hub, then you have something valuable to offer to everyone!

      Great overview, mts1098! I didn't even know that Human Resources and Information Systems was a career field! I especially like your description of different types of HRIS jobs.

      Wow, I LOVE your pictures, aa lite. It's really depressing to hear that many highly-trained scientists have to deal with those conditions!

    This hub is about becoming a Drywall Taper. A field that few too many people now choose to go into. It's a hub I wrote quite awhile back but thought I'd share it here anyways.

        Good Hub, barbat79. I didn't realize there were so many ways to meet clients as an insurance agent.

          Thank you, Christy Kirwan!  I am forever amazed at the multifaceted product market AND the changes that occurr within the industry itself.
          Meeting new people is part of it...  That is one thing I love about hubpages as well!

    I have just started to do work as a Brand Ambassador for major corporations and their product.  It is a field that I have never known about, or ever thought about being interested in but I am loving it right now.

    Hi Christy,
    This is the first time I have participated in the Weekly Topic Inspiration, and enjoyed myself.  I wrote about the career I actually just resigned from in 2012. It's one of those fields, though, that can be very rewarding, but few people know much about, so I decided to write about it.  The career is that of Speech-language Pathology.  I do not know how to post a link, but my subdomain is: alise-evon.hubpages.com, and the name of my hub is Working as a Speech-Language Pathologist.
