It probably comes as no surprise that before you do anything else you must make sure that your Headline gets their attention first. In order to create an effective headline for your recruitment ad. Spend a few minutes identifying the most appealing things about the position and consider including the most eye-catching in your headline.
2. Clear Contact Directions
The second most important thing for every recruitment ad is making sure that there is clear and detailed information about how and when applicants need to apply by and where should resumes be sent to. Double-check contact information as well and consider creating an email address or forwarding option so that you can route applications to the appropriate people easily or into one specific mailbox to create a smoother process all around.
3. Just keep it simple.
“I tell my clients not to overdo it on the information. Give the details of the job and its requirements as well as the key information.”
4. Inviting Office Environment
“It’s always important to give your candidate some kind of idea about the work-life balance or the environment mentality of where they would be working. This helps them picture what it would be like to work there
5. How do you stand out
“ It’s also crucial to let would-be applicants know something that makes your company stand out, maybe your company offers unique incentives, room for growth within the company or the most advanced equipment and training.”
1. First Impressions count
Sure the job sounds great on paper, you are sure you will get a ton of applicants. That’s great right?
