A couple tips about posting your jobs

  • Use the first paragraph of your job posting to promote what makes the company great.  Too many companies post their jobs and it’s entirely one-sided.  Use the first paragraph to really sell the candidate.
  • Leverage the power of bullet points.  There is direct correlation to search algorithms ranking with job descriptions who have bullet points in their description.  The most bullet points, the better.  You’ll have a higher likelihood of getting to the top of search results.
  • Don’t use funky job titles.  Too many times we are getting creative about our job title. The problem with that is no one will be searching for it.  Create job titles that your ideal candidate is searching for.
