Key Elements For A Successful Job Ad
Job seekers are looking for opportunities. What makes your role a standout role? Why should they join your team? What does your position offer them that others won’t? It is important to emphasize the key elements of a successful job ad.
These key elements are:
- Value Proposition
Why should this applicant work for you instead of another team? What do you have to offer a team member in this role? Do you offer a competitive salary and benefits, training, development, continued education, paid time off, etc? What would make someone excited to join your team? Speak to it and do so confidently.
List all of the responsibilities of the person in the role for which you are hiring. Be sure to be as detailed and specific as possible so that job seeker can assess their skill set and ability to be successful in this role. This will also allow you to set clearly defined expectations of the person in this position, and the applicant knowingly moves through your hiring process with that understanding and expectation.
It is a great practice to comprehensively list all of the qualifications that the individual in this role must possess. Are there special licensing requirements or certifications for someone in this position? Do you require previous experience in this type of role? Is there a special skillset required in order to be successful on your team? This is an opportunity to outline these requirements to find the best fit and qualified candidate.
Provide as much detail as possible about the ways in which the person in this position will be compensated. Be sure to include whether it is salary or hourly and if there are any bonus opportunities. Is your compensation range dependent on a certain level of experience and do any opportunities for additional compensation exist?
The Job Seeker’s Journey Through The Hiring Process
Job seekers will begin the application process by being asked a series of screening questions and are offered the ability to complete a DISC assessment.
