Some Tips for Job Postings

There are many thousands of job postings circulated in both the print media and on the Internet, all competing for the attention of good candidates.

Job postings are important, as these also give you a competitive advantage in selecting candidates.

Postings have to be written to attract a wide variety of candidates, but at the same time should also pre-screen those applicants that may not be qualified.
  • Try and think from your external audience's perspective and target your audience appropriately. A posting developed for an internal audience can be substantially different than that for an external one.
     
  • Think strategically about including as many keywords as possible, particularly if the posting is on the Internet.
     
  • Make sure you post the job in the proper category. For advancement support positions, you may wish to post in more than one location since these positions may often cross organizational boundaries.
     
  • Try not to make the position title too specific, particularly if posting nationally since titles may vary across organizations.
     
  • Try to convey the description and all of the other information within 5-10 lines of the message since candidates will often scan many job postings. You can  include a web site address so the candidates have a place to go for more detailed information.
     
  • Try to include the standard tag line and logo of your organization. It will help to make your organization more appealing.
     
  • Briefly note the skills education.
     
  • Include a salary range and information about benefits.
     
  • Include your web site and email address along with traditional fax and postal address to make it easier for applicants to respond in a variety of ways.
     
  • Include a no phone calls line if you don't want to be inundated with calls.
     
  • Include the location and whether moving costs will be reimbursed.
     
  • Make sure you put the closing date that applications must be received by.
     
  • Always carefully review your job posting before you send it to make sure there are no spelling mistakes or grammatical errors.
     
  • Be a good corporate citizen. Make sure that you remove your job postings from Internet sites when the positions are filled.
     
  • A job posting is also an advertisement for your organization. Make sure that you also consider the marketing aspects and the character and tone conveyed about your organization.
