Our website is also a destination for all people, regardless of age, who seek advice in the areas of law, career, cars, finance or anything else that would increase the quality of life.

If you like what you see on our website and would like to be a part of it, apply to join our team. Individuals across the nation enjoy reading what you have to say and what better place to promote your name, boost your experience, and showcase your thoughts and writing style than right here at The Quality Show?

You do not have to be a professional journalist to contribute, either. Most importantly, if you believe in what we are doing and can effectively communicate your thoughts and ideas through words then we have a place for you in our roster.

Interested? – Before proceeding – You must take a look at our columnist position details listed below for more information. You are required to read and agree to these terms before applying:

Rules and Regulations

  • Writing for us is a non-paying position and is strictly volunteer work. Don't come to us expecting to make a living off the site. We don't and you won't, either. Like us, you are contributing due strictly to your love of writing and desire to share your thoughts and writing style with a sizeable audience while attaining crucial experience.
  • Applicants must be 18 years of age.
  • We reserve the right to edit submitted content as needed or not publish a particular article at all — in extremely rare cases. All content submitted becomes property of The Quality Show, with proper credit given to the authors. You must receive permission before using published articles elsewhere, and re-published articles must be published using the same form in which they appear on The Quality Show, with credit given to the site and original author. You agree to this by submitting your columnist application.
  • You are required to submit an article at least once a month, but you are encouraged to contribute more frequently.

Columnist Benefits and Perks

  • Nationwide exposure to your work and name. Create a name for yourself on the Internet as an established journalist. Use this experience to aid you now and in the future. Experience is valuable.
  • You will receive full credit for your story or article and you will have the ability to receive feedback from readers.
  • You will have the opportunity to collaborate and share ideas with other columnists on the staff to improve your skills.
  • As a columnist, you get creative freedom. We don't force you to write about one specific topic; write about any appropriate topic you wish once you are on the staff.

Journalistic Guidelines and Tips

  • When you write, be yourself. Don’t be afraid to use informal writing or sarcasm occasionally and don’t be afraid to submit an article due to the fact that you believe it is politically incorrect. If your article has a valid point then it will be published regardless of its political incorrectness. This is called Free Speech and we believe in it.
  • Use good English and grammar skills. Visitors will judge you on your writing style and abilities and no one wants to be looked at as ignorant. You are representative of everyone on staff.
  • When you have an opinion about something, be sure to back it up.
  • Provide a descriptive, but short and catchy title with your articles. You could have the greatest article ever, but if it is accompanied by a weak title, no one will be interested in reading it.
  • Do not use first-person (I, me, myself, etc.) in article introductions. Instead, make your introduction informational and enticing to readers and 3-4 sentences in length. It is okay to use first-person in your article body, however.
  • To maximize readability, break your work into paragraphs of 3-4 sentences. Avoid large chunks of text because it makes it more difficult to read in an online format. Do not indent paragraphs and leave an extra line-break between paragraphs when submitting stories.

Article Topic Suggestions

  • News analysis: Take a news story that will affect college or post-college life and add your editorial perspective. Example: Google plans to open a new call center in the Kannapolis, NC area, how will this affect the job market, etc.
  • College fashion: College students change clothing styles frequently. If you predict an upcoming trend, know what’s hot and what’s not, or just plain like writing about fashion, this is the topic for you.
  • College team rivalries: Talk some trash in an area you feel strongly about, just make sure to back it up.
  • Your experiences: If you have an experience that changed your life for the better whether it is financial, career, job, or moral based, you are welcome to write about it here.
  • College advice: If you have financial, internship, studying, career, interview, or any other advice that you feel fits the overall objective of The Quality Show, write about it and we will publish it.
  • The past: Do the events of many years ago grab your interest? Share your memories and experiences or profile a legend. Example: Do a profile on Donald Trump, researching the moves he made towards his ultimate success.
  • Anything goes: If it's about college, success, or if it fits the overall objective of The Quality Show and is written well, chances are, we will publish it. Write about what moves you and you have passion for.
