There’s no simple answer to this, however, today with all the cool social tools, new media, and B2B resources out there, one can be very creative and innovative in writing a fantastic job posting – ideally in doing so you want to weed out the filler, minimize submissions from people who clearly aren’t your target audience, and in the end, secure several submissions from people that are the ideal applicant. A recent article I stumbled onto touches on this and offers up some great examples to help you pen a job posting that [hopefully] wont suck. A couple of ideas:
- Make it better reflect exactly what you’re looking for and also make it more conversational
- It always pays to spend the time to make our open spots stand out
- The less conservative you are in your writing, the better response from the people you’re trying to reach.
- Rewrite your job descriptions to remove all the buzzword crap and try to put a little flair to them
