In our recent newsletter there was a spotlight on online recruiting that I found to be very interesting. Many people know that one of the best ways to attract candidates for an open position is via the web. But, many companies believe that it is through advertising these positions via major job boards such as monster.com, CareerBuilder or Yahoo Hotjobs, which a recent study says isn’t always the case.
A study that was completed in 2005 by CareerXroads and the Wall Street Journal Web site CareerJournal, stated 85 percent of people that visit a web site for reasons other than a job search, end up looking at what jobs are available if posted on their site. The more interesting fact is that 64 percent of these people that are randomly searching applied for jobs discovered that way. This should loudly convey the message to every employer and company that a career page is extremely valuable to your website and a must.
So, what are the top techniques and best practices you should apply when designing your company’s career site? Read all about them in our latest newsletter.
