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.

For this reason, crafting your job postings shouldn’t just be a matter of parroting out an internal job requisition. Rather, it should be a carefully constructed piece of branding.

5 Ways for Recruiters to Increase Apply Rates

Anyone who works in recruiting can tell you that competition for talent is the most intense it’s been in years.

Is Your Applicant Experience Costing You Qualified Candidates?

For years, most businesses have had things backwards. Conventional wisdom held that the application and interview processes were good ways to test the devotion of your applicants—after all, if a candidate wasn’t willing to spend 20 minutes filling out an online form, or wait two weeks for a response to her application, how could a company expect that person to be a dedicated and invested employee? Unfortunately, in an era where competition for the best talent is at its fiercest, this type of attitude can come at a steep price: losing high-quality applicants to companies that offer a better applicant experience.
