    Lisa, we have recently come across your article on theLadders. HMS is a search firm specializing in the consultation and recruitment of management within the hospitality field. We are always searching for career advice to post on our website, and to include in our email newsletters. Would you be interested in sharing your insite?

      Hi Keith,

      Here’s my e-mail address:
      lisavaas@lisavaas.com

      If you’d like to chat about contributing articles on a freelance basis, I’d be happy to go over my rates and discuss with you the type of material you’d like to include in your newsletters. This particular article was commissioned by TheLadders. If you’re interested in reposting it, I’d need to check with my client regarding republish rights, and then we could discuss the fee.

      Feel free to let me know how you’d like to proceed.

      Best,
      Lisa

      Hi Keith,
      Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have to figure out why I’m not getting alerted to post comments!
      The thing about the content is that it’s paid for by my clients. You can always just ask a client such as TheLadders for permission to repost it. My editor over there is Matthew Rothenberg, mrothenberg@theladders.com. It can be tough to get through to him.
      Alternatively, give me a holler if you have budget to pay for content such as this. I’d be happy to add you to my client list.
      Cheerio!
