Calling All Small Businesses! Be Featured in New Spotlight Series

We’re delighted to kick off a new series of articles called the Small Biz Spotlight.  As the name suggests, we’ll be putting small businesses in the spotlight on a regular basis.

And we’d love to consider YOUR business to be covered in the series.

Each article will be a profile of a small business. For our purposes, that means having fewer than 100 employees.  It can be any type of business, in any industry.

What’s the catch?  No catch, except that we’re looking for businesses that are interesting to other business owners, or where you as the owner have a lesson or two to share with other business owners.  You have to have an interesting story behind the scenes.  Perhaps it’s the story of how your business got started. Or maybe it’s about a challenge you faced down, or an opportunity that changed your business. Or it might even be the unusual nature of your industry or what you do in your workday.  It could even be your interesting work space.

Don’t get all lacking in confidence, however.  We find lots and lots of businesses to be fascinating, and love to cover them.

We’re able to do this series through the generous underwriting of series sponsor, iCIMS.  iCIMS is the leading provider of talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses.  And they are just as excited as we are.

So how do you throw your hat into the ring, to be considered?  Just fill out our short form.  We’ll contact you and we can conduct a phone interview to gather the details.

Apply here to be featured in the Small Biz Spotlight.
