What makes a good Switchboard post?

Switchboard sets itself apart from other spaces online by narrowing posts to just two categories: Asks and Offers. We expect all posts to be either a genuine ask or offer. The content of the post must be actionable.

What is an “actionable” post”

Actionable posts are those invite you to take some sort of action.

Usually they invite people to do things like:

  • share advice or resources

  • meet for coffee

  • introduce you to someone

  • hire someone

  • apply for a position

  • help someone with a task

  • collaborate on a project

If you're not sure how to formulate your ask or offer, you can contact your founder for help.
