Things you can do in 30 minutes or less: have a pizza delivered, squeeze in a power workout, and yes — even write a smashing job posting.
We know you’re swamped, and finding the time to sit down and craft a compelling job posting can be elusive. But now you have a handy guide that can help get the job done in less time than you may have previously imagined possible.
Speaking of time, did you know that the average job seeker spends less than 30 seconds reviewing a job posting? That’s barely enough time to heat a cup of coffee in the microwave. And that’s all the time you’ll have to make your job posting stand apart from the pack. So the pressure is on.
At the same time, there are important job posting considerations you may not have heard before.
For instance, did you know that advertising for “rock stars” is a big no-no? (Unless you’re trying to hire someone for your Bon Jovi cover band, that is.) Or that the tone of your job posting does not need to be bland and dry for people to take you seriously?
So block off 30 minutes on the calendar, and use these proven tips and tricks to create a better job posting.
