Getting your job ads to stand out isn’t easy, there are a few fairly simple ways you might be able to make them work harder for you. No matter what type of vacancy a jobseeker applies for, the things they look for in a job advert usually remain the same.
We have some tips that we think will help you make the most of your job ads!
- Stop hiding salary
Leaving out the salary is not only making your job ad less competitive but you are at risk of turning away the perfect candidate! You don’t want that do you? So be upfront as possible!
- Location, Location, Location
Most people search for roles by postcode of exact area. Making your location as accurate might be the best way to get noticed!
- Less is more
According to statistics, anything under 500 words will increase application numbers by 12%! Less is definitely more! Some roles may demand more, but always try and keep your descriptions as concise and as easy to digest as possible.
- Make the most of the platform
Featured jobs on job sites allows you to highlight your roles on key search results pages, and email your vacancy to 250 of the best matching candidates.
- Manage your jobs on the go
Everybody nowadays has their phone on them at all times, use this to your advantage and text, email or phone your candidates! Reach the best candidates before the competition is essential. In other words, don’t wait too long to get in touch.
We hope some of these help you with your job ads and help you find the perfect candidate! Remember to look out for more blogs and more tips in the future!
