Is Your Career Page SEO Ready?

When it comes to SEO, we tend to think of it as a marketing tool that focuses on consumers. You optimize your pages so that you maximize your chances at being discovered by someone doing a Google search, with the hopes of them becoming a customer or client of yours. The thing is that SEO can be just as important for talent acquisition. The basic principles are the same as for consumers: you want to maximize the chances that they’ll click on the link to your page in the Search Engine Results Page (SERP).

The Tech Talent Shortage: How Recruitment Marketing Automation Can Help

Tech companies resort to all kinds of stunts, publicity moves, and shenanigans to try and differentiate themselves from their competitors to hire top candidates. This comes in the form of anything from massive policy announcements to crazy signing bonuses for new hires. We’re not saying that these techniques can’t be effective, but from our perspective they seem like shortcuts. Not all shortcuts are bad—some of them save time and energy in a way that boosts ROI—but these kinds of shortcuts seem to skip all of the important stuff, i.e. laying the groundwork for future recruitment success. After all, once the barbecue is over and the swag has been handed out, how many of the attendees are you ever going to hear from again? Perhaps more importantly, how many are ever going to hear from you again?

How to Design the Perfect Job Landing Page

At one time or another, we’ve all been there: scrolling through your phone, you come across a job posting or an ad for a position that looks interesting. You click the link, and it takes you to a landing page that loads at glacial speeds. A second before you would have closed on the window and gone on with your day, the page finally loads—and it’s a mess. It’s clearly not optimized for mobile, and it’s got endless dry paragraphs of awkwardly formatted text, all in print too tiny to read.

 

At this point, most of us have given up, but if you soldier on you’re eventually presented with a deeply infuriating application, with no autofill functionality, no way to save, and potentially more than an hour’s worth of redundant forms to fill out.
