This is a chance for industry practitioners to offer their expertise to those who need it.

The Ask an Expert area on Creative Choices allows people to post any questions they have about creative careers online and for free.

Our experts answer these questions and their answers are published for all to see. 

Why be an expert?

This is a chance for industry practitioners to offer their expertise to those who need it. It allows them to give tailored careers advice based on their experience of working in the creative sector.

As well as this important reason:

  • Experts get their own profile, taking their place among the expert panel.
  • All of the expert questions are promoted in the Creative Choices newsletter, as well as on our Twitter and Facebook.
  • As the questions are moderated in-house, experts won’t be sent questions that are not relevant or receive questions too often.

Answering a question

When a question is received by us, we find a good match with one of our experts before sending it on. 

The expert then receives a notification by email, which takes them through to the question on the website.

They can log in and post an answer straight up and it's published immediately. 

There's no word count and no 'correct' way to answer. All we ask is that you give detailed, practical advice, which demonstrates your insider knowledge of the profession.
