What is Career Diaries?

Welcome to Career Diaries, with a mission to tell the untold stories of millennial women and their careers. We are asking you to share your authentic, week-in-the life diary as you navigate your career and all that comes with it. Thanks goes to Refinery 29’s Money Diaries for the inspiration!

How Do I Submit A Career Diary?

Journal your work week Monday through Friday and share it with us here, by completing the form below. We will ask for minimal information such as, location, job, age, industry and salary (optional) to include in the diary.

Outside of this information Career Diaries are published to our site anonymously. We do also ask you to submit your first name and email in case a member of our team needs to contact you, but it is not published.

Please date stamp your entries for each day, like so:
9 a.m. Get to my desk coffee in hand....
11:30 a.m. Skipping lunch to finish my project proposal

What Are We Looking For In A Career Diary?

Authenticity

We want to hear your honest and genuine story. Don't shy away from the good or the challenging moments you encounter throughout the week. Navigating office politics? Learning the ropes at a new job? Balancing daycare drop offs and 8 am meetings? We want to hear it, and so do our readers.

Quality

A great Career Diary is in the details, generally the more of your unique, personal experiences you can share the more it resonates with readers. Check your submission for grammar, spelling and structure before hitting send; incomplete sentences make it more difficult to publish. No need for it to read like an essay, use your own, conversational voice.

We may edit portions of your submission for the purposes of clarity or length if needed.

Diversity

We want to tell a diverse spectrum of stories from women. That's why we love to receive submissions of all kinds from women in different jobs, locations, industries and facing different moments of celebration and challenges as they pursue their career.
