The first part of your job post should encourage interested applicants to apply. Too many companies make the mistake of ignoring the importance of focusing on the candidate. They simply post a list of their job responsibilities but don’t take the time to explain the real benefits that would come with a position. In many cases, the best candidates are those who are looking not just for their next paycheck, but for an opportunity to grow professionally.
Leverage the power of bullet points. Highlight the features you offer in a bulleted format. When looking to increase chances of ranking higher on job search engines, use bullet points to improve algorithms. The relationship between algorithms and bullet points is clear and the more you use them, the higher your chances are of appearing at the top of search results.
Do not use fancy job titles for your job posting. Too many times we get a little too creative and call it something else. The problem is that no one will search for it. Instead, make sure your titles are reflective of an actual job you’re looking to fill with words that are recognizable and common to the industry.
A Job Posting Is NOT a Job Description #
Some candidates tend to confuse a job post or a job listing for a job description. However, these aren’t the same in the job search world.
A job description outlines the responsibilities, duties, qualifications, and skills required to perform a specific job. It is an important tool used by employers to define the role and responsibilities of a job position. It also helps employees understand their role and helps employers determine the best candidate for the job.
Job descriptions usually require a sign-off from the hiring manager or upper management team and generally contain a:
- Job title
- Role summary
- Requirements and qualifications
- The way a person is successful in the role
- Who the role reports to (and/or manages)
This is all information one would typically find in a standard job ad, so it’s easy to see the confusion.
A job posting is an advertisement that outlines the requirements and expectations for a particular job. Job postings are used by companies and organizations to attract potential candidates for open positions.
The anatomy of a job posting includes:
A killer remote job posting should include a clear description of the job, including the job title, duties, and qualifications. It should also have an accurate and concise summary of the company, its mission, and its culture
- A catchy job title with searchable industry keywords
- Dynamic role summary
- An engaging company introduction and mission statement
- Requirements, qualifications, and preferred skills
- Work environment expectations
- And much more!
