Are Your Job Descriptions Attracting Top Talent?

Unemployment rates are down and hiring is growing, which means there is more competition among companies to hire skilled workers. Your business needs to employ great people if you want to succeed, which means you’ll need to attract top talent when you have open positions.

The job descriptions you write can make a big difference in who applies, so make sure you think carefully about how to write a job post to attract the kind of people your business needs.

To maximize the chances you’ll get applications from great people:

  • Make your job descriptions interesting: Talented professionals are often in demand within their industry and they have a choice of where they work. Be sure your job ad showcases why they would want to be a member of your team. Use your job ad to paint a clear picture of what the work will be like and show off how the person hired will have a chance to do creative, interesting work. Think about the best parts of the job and make sure to include those in your ad to capture the attention of candidates who can bring strong skills to the table.
  • Provide the information candidates need: Make sure your job ad is clear about who should apply, the hiring process, the timeline for hiring and how applications should be submitted. If applicants are uncertain about how to apply or don’t feel the job ad showcases a legitimate opportunity, they’re far less likely to reach out to your business.
  • Show off your company’s culture and core competencies: People who are good at what they do want to work for companies that are on the cutting edge and will give them a chance to shine. You want to show off how strong your company is in the industry and paint a picture of a positive corporate culture so potential candidates will think of your business as a good place to work.
