Tripping on the Ladder™ is the premier online community for professionals in career transition, turmoil and contemplation.
Our readership consists of professionals from entry-level workers to seasoned executives who find themselves at a career crossroads—initiated either by their own quest for “something else” or because of circumstances thrust upon them—and who seek a one-stop, single source for information, exploration, resources and peer discussion/community.
Tripping on the Ladder is not a job bank/job board, nor is it intended to provide a blueprint for the nuts-and-bolts of job seeking for individuals seeking a specific job or position. While it may cover the occasional “how-to” on resume writing or interviewing skills, that is not our primary focus—in particular because, for those needs, there are already myriad books, resources, career centers and recruitment agencies who can help. Rather, Tripping on the Ladder is a venue at the intersection of profession, passion and purpose whose mission is to respond to the needs, questions and soul-searching of friends, peers and colleagues who are in career transition and contemplation, thereby providing a forum for helping our readers ultimately “move forward” in a positive and personally fulfilling direction.
To achieve this, Tripping on the Ladder relies on a large national network of contributing writers (freelancers, content experts and lay reader-contributors) to help us cover as much content as possible. As a valued contributor, you will not only benefit from being part of this vibrant and forward-thinking community, but you also will achieve professional exposure as your work is disseminated on our web site, to our thousands of subscribers, and among our advertisers and business and media partners.
