    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Steps In Finding Your Ideal Job. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    Sorry. I thought it was a great article. Maybe a little thin?

      Thank you so very much ... I thought it was ok also but apparently the Administrators didn't think so.

    It needs some specifics.  Like how do you find relevant information-- how much you earn in careers, whether a university is accredited etc.

      If I do all the research then there isn't much left for others to do. There are just too many institutions of higher learning to give those type of specifics. This is only meant to be a spring-board to get the person involved in the Investigation Process. To make it to specific … I would need to write a book on every aspect. However, I really, really appreciate your feedback. That can be the basis of my next book.

    The problem is that it's too vague, and also competing in an already saturated field. You have to make your article stand out.

    Suggestions:

    Work experience
    Volunteering
    Look outside of your immediate family
    What careers are friends choosing
    Take an online aptitude test
    Pay attention to jobs highlighted on the news, in dramas, books, etc.

    Try to come up with some unique ideas. List some areas that people might not consider. Women doing men's jobs and vice-versa, alternative health, animals, young people's advisor, counselling. Your one example is a medical transcriber. Why not mention more unusual careers?

    Those are some really great suggestions but I didn't want it to sound like my article "I Broke My Only Crayon." That article takes a completely unique look at the job market. I have also written some extensive articles on adult learners that has been published on Owlcation and series fiction that's on Letterpile!

    I think I'll just let it stand as is because I can't spend so much time on this when I have so many other projects that I can write on. Besides, I can always just delete it or submit it somewhere else. I do this for pleasure and if it really becomes work, I will just have to stop!

    Thanks, for your help though!

    Thanks to those who have made such great suggestions but I have deleted the article and will probably move on. I just don't need the hassle ... I'm a Cancer Survival and I don't need unnecessary stress!

    The job of a hub is to do something for the reader.  The trick is picking a topic where a few hundred words will really be helpful and go beyond what they could just immediately figure out for themself.

    Can't see the article now but I do remember quickly looking at it yesterday... I remember thinking it's quite well written, maybe you could try adding a bit more personal information or opinion around it, as Hubpages definitely like that, and that can also help your article be a bit more individual if it is on a topic that has already been written about a lot.

      Thanks for your kind suggestions but I have deleted it. I just didn’t feel like constantly trying to improve on it. At first yes, but now I am looking for other avenues to display my writing.
      I really appreciate your comments!

        Thanks, Polly! It’s wonderful Hubbers like you who don’t mind helping others improve even when they feel it doesn’t need it! A good swift kick in the pants can be brutal but necessary! Love you, guys!
