STEP 2: CREATE ENGAGING, DETAILED JOB DESCRIPTIONS
Many postings are tiresome, ambiguous and redundant. Make yours exciting, clear and efficient. First, spark interest by describing your company’s mission, strengths, expertise, environment and culture in a way that will attract the type of talent you want. Next, be open about why you are hiring (from tip 1) and the impact your new hire will have on this goal. Create immediate buy-in to your vision. Then, provide a macro view of the role and micro bullet list of responsibilities, education/skill requirements (in descending order of importance), and character preferences. Finish off with a ‘call to action’ closing.
Lastly, have your team proofread the posting. It’s the only way to know if it’s clear, concise, accurate and stimulating
