The Riley Guide: About the Guide

How We Select a Site for Listing

All services and resources included in this guide must include job listings or other career, employment-related, or education information, services, and/or resources that benefit job seekers.
  • We prefer services and sites offering free access to the job listings or other resources, but we will consider inclusion of a fee-based resource if we can determine that it is:
    1. exclusive to the niche it serves and/or
    2. valid in charging for the services it provides.
  • Sites which are merely selling products or advertising their services will not be included. We want you to have something of value for all visitors, whether or not they opt to purchase your services or resources.
  • We want to know who is operating a site and we want to see contact information beyond a simple email address or a Contact Form. Anonymous sites that do not provide any information on who is behind their operation will have to be particularly wonderful and/or useful to be considered for a listing, and if listed will include a note regarding this lack of information.
  • We prefer sites that do not register their domain names as "Private", thereby hiding the name and contact information of the owner/operator.
  • Anonymous sites with no contact info and utilizing Private Domain protection will not be considered at all.

All sites submitted for a listing are evaluated according to these criteria. However, the final decision for inclusion and placement or rejection is The Riley Guide’s publisher.

The Addition of Fee-Based Services

As stated before, some sites which charge for their services may be included since the information or service they offer is unique or the field or industry is not otherwise represented online. The final decision about listing a site is Riley’s publisher. However, we do not run background checks on these sites nor do we purchase their products to test them. The decision to do business with any service and the responsibility for making such a decision is yours alone.
