Opportunity Overview

ChEnected is looking for guest writers to contribute blog posts on career, academic, or technical topics. Express your opinion, build your online reputation in a positive way, and share knowledge with members and the engineering community at large. Examples of current guest posts include:

The types of posts we’re looking for:

  • News, insights and opinions on topics such as biological engineering, food-energy-water nexus, alternative energy, chemicals, process engineering, process safety, and more.
  • Leaders that inspire – blog about someone who has inspired your career. Mentor/mentee relationships – blog about someone who mentored you and what that experience was like.
  • Conference Report – Share your experience attending an AIChE or related conference, sharing highlights and insights.
  • Videos from YouTube, Ted Talks, etc. that you find interesting. Share a summary and your thoughts with readers.
  • Report a plant experience – Are you working in a plant? Share 3 important lessons you learned from that experience.
  • Book reviews – Can be related or not related to chemical engineering but something that would interest the community.
  • Getting that first job – Are you a young professional who just landed a job? Share your story — how you did it and lessons learned — with the ChEnected audience.

Expectations

  • Pitch an idea for a single blog post. Your pitch should be clear and concise, demonstrating an understanding of the english language, grammar, and punctuation.
  • Write a blog post of a maximum of 600 words (shorter posts, divided by sections/subheads, work well).
  • Provide a bio and photo of yourself (or an updated Engage profile).
