Why Your Job Posts Aren't Working and How-To Change That

Want to increase your job post engagement? Sure, who doesn't? But how? This hands-on presentation will provide examples of why many job postings fall flat and what recruiters can do to give them a facelift with the potential of doubling, or even tripling, qualified candidate engagement.

  • Recognize what works and what doesn't about your job posts and your competitors—including how to spot well-written skills-related bullets to attract the right candidates
  • Research job titles and increase traffic to your posts
  • Formulas and tactics you can apply to every job post
  • Hone your copywriting skills to improve response rates to your job postings, including responses for those hard-to-find candidates and passive job seekers from diverse backgrounds 
  • Measure the impact of your job postings
