1. Constructing a Well

 

Constructing a Well-Written, Well-Placed Internet Job Posting

A successful internet job posting depends upon what is written, how it is composed and where the final ad is posted. A well-posted job will yield a high volume of candidates, and a well written one will aid in narrowing the results to the genuinely qualified candidates.  A poorly written ad may lead qualified prospects to skip over your career opportunity because the basic information needed to peak their curiosity wasn't included.

 

Parts of the Posting:

Title: The title should be informative and eye-catching, causing the candidate to read the ad and learn more. The use of multiple words in the title of your ad will increase the odds of it appearing in the results of a candidate searches by title.

 

Location:  Always list the location including city and state. Many candidates will view your ad, so it is a good idea to include the closest major city, if the location is in an unknown small town.

 

Skills: Use as many descriptive words possible to increase the chances of your ad to appear in a candidates search results.  Differentiate between required skills (those that need to be considered) and desirable/preferred skills (those that are preferred).  Skills are more readable in bullet format.

 

Job description: Provide enough information to give a clear accurate picture (responsibilities, scope and role of the position). The job description should inform and convince the candidate to apply.  It should also touch upon how the candidate can develop and advance in the position.

 

Experience Required - Clarity helps the candidate decide whether to apply, but don't pack the ad with a lengthy list of requirements, academics, or duties. Long lists may be intimidating, and can exclude even the best candidate from applying.

 

Work Status:  State the status you require of your employees.  Do they need to be United States Citizens, or are you willing to hire employees with green cards?  Will you assist the right candidate in obtaining a HB-1 Visa?

 

Contact Information:  Provide more than one option for interested candidates to apply:   e-mail, phone, fax, or mailing address.

 

Job ID: For each ad you post use a unique tracking ID#. This will allow you to know which site generated the application, and will provide you with valuable information about which sites yield the best responses.

 

Some Tips for writing an effective job advertisement:

 

·         Keep it organized and clear - Avoid lengthy paragraphs, and don't mix topics such as skills, contact information, and requirements.  Instead, use sub headings, bullets, and different fonts to clearly communicate your message.

·         Provide a company summary - list your company's history, mission, goals and the products or services it provides.  Keep in mind that you are not just trying to sell the position, but the organization as well.  Convey what makes your company attractive.

·         It is okay to modify the job title - It is not necessary to use the same exact internal job title. Especially if that title is vague or outdated. Create a descriptive title that conveys what you are looking for. Consider linking the title to a hook, which is an attention grabbing word or phrase that compels the reader to view the rest of the ad. For example -Accountant needed for GROWING Company.  Administrative Assistant, NO WEEKENDS!

 

·         Avoid asking for a specific number of years’ experience - potentially qualified candidates might decide not to apply.

·         Showcase benefits - No need to outline the complete benefit package, but provide enough so that candidates won't pass up the opportunity.

·         Provide concise contact information - be clear on how, when and where you wish to be contacted.  A prospect won't likely persist if it is difficult to apply for the position.

·         Think like a candidate - When writing your ad keep in mind that candidates will find your ad using a search engine. What words would they use to search?  Be sure to include these words in your ad, using multiple words that mean the same thing, so that you cover all the bases.

·         Think of your perfect candidate: If they had the perfect personality, work ethic and background, which skills are necessary?  If personality-fit is more important, think of language that will attract that kind of personality.

·         Choose multiple options when posting - Post your ad to your company's website.  Post to three or four popular online employment sites that generate high traffic.  Also, post your ad to a "mega site" that will distribute your ad to other employment sites increasing the exposure of your posting.

·         Leave the posting up for at least 30-45 days - and modify the posting if necessary.  On many of the major job sites, the most recently written (or updated) postings appear first in the list of results.  Making a few simply changes to "refresh" your posting will improve your placement in a candidate's search results.

·         Qualify candidates - close the ad by asking the candidate to submit a one-page summary of their greatest accomplishment.  This is a unique way to filter candidates.  The quality of the accomplishment is more indicative of success than a degree and experience may be.

 

 

Content Counts!  What Candidates Look for in a Job Description?

 

Company Overview, Location, Position Description, Required Capabilities, Relocation, Community Information,

Opportunities for Promotion, Work/Life Balance, Legal Information, Branding, Salary, Education Requirements,

Preferred Skills, Travel, Benefits, Training Availability, Awards Won, Links to Similar Jobs

 

These factors determine whether an ad is applied to or simply viewed.

 

Quick Facts to Consider:

 

·         Studies have shown that online job searching activity rises at the end of the first quarter and second quarter, as well as in August.

·         Over 35% of U.S. job seekers have an actively running online job search notification.  97% of these job seekers receive an alert at least once a week.

·         Since the majority of online job searches are conducted on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, posting an ad early in the week will allow maximum exposure to candidates actively searching to make a change.

·         Job title, bolding, location on page and the first 200 characters of the posting influence whether or not the candidate views your ad.

3. Employers Interview Checklist

 

Interview Tips / Basics

When conducting an interview, remember that you are the "spokesperson" for your organization.  The manner in which you interview a candidate becomes their knowledge base on how your organization functions.  Remember the Golden Rule - treat the candidates the way you would like to be treated. Use the following checklist to enhance your interviewing techniques, and secure top talent:

 

1.     Arrive on time for the interview.  Being punctual shows that you and your organization value others' time.

2.     When meeting the candidate, extend a friendly handshake and greeting, introduce yourself, then ask the candidate to have a seat.

3.     You should only be interviewing one person at a time. An interview should be a conversation, not an inquisition. Simultaneous interviewers place unnecessary pressure on the candidate.

4.     Make priority calls, emails, and text messages before the interview starts.  Candidates deserve your complete attention, during their allotted time.  If you are expecting a call during the interview that you absolutely must take, make the candidate aware of this at the start of the interview.

5.     Review the candidates resume before the interview.  Candidates will appreciate that you have taken the time to learn about them, just as you expect that a candidate will have researched your company beforehand.

6.     Make sure you have a comprehensive understanding of the position that the candidate is interviewing for. Know the job description, talk to people who best understand the position, and develop a list of the major responsibilities, and skills needed for the position.

7.     Be organized. Decide on the criteria you will use in your decision making. Make notes of the questions that you want to ask, and follow the same interview format and similar questions for every candidate.  You can make a valid comparison of the candidates you've interviewed.

8.     Conduct the interview in private. Candidates should be at ease in knowing that their interview is confidential. Your co-workers should not be able to see or hear what is going on in the interview.

9.     Create a positive interviewing climate for both you and the interviewee by arranging seating in a comfortable informal manner.

10.   Remember to be friendly. Build rapport with the candidate right from the start of the interview.  Create "small talk" or "ice breakers" to put the interviewee at ease.

11.   Outline the structure of the interview for the candidate, and explain the goals of the interview process.

12.   Explain your role in the organization, and generate the candidate's interest by factually promoting the position, the organization and how the candidate would benefit.

13.   Ask the right questions. - Use open ended questions such as what, how, and why that probe for detailed responses.  Ask candidates to tell you about real experiences rather than hypothetical ones. For a list of traditional, challenging, behavioral, and inappropriate questions please refer to our Interview Questions page.

14.   Be a good listener.  Exhibit signs of interest such as nodding your head, and maintaining eye contact. Periodically paraphrase the candidate's answers to reinforce that you are listening. A simple rule to follow is that the interviewer should be listening for 70% of the interview, and talking for 30% of it.

15.   Keep all your questions job related, and avoid discussing personal matters.

16.   Be Positive. Don't say anything negative about the person who previously held the position, or about the organization.

17.   Close the interview.  Answer the candidate's questions and give a realistic timetable for when you expect to make a hiring decision, or at least what the next step in the process is.

18.   Conduct a post-interview evaluation by reviewing recorded facts and making notes on impressions, and judgments immediately following the interview, while it is still fresh in your mind.

19.   Be Timely.  It is in everyone's best interest to move the interview process along smoothly and rapidly.  Commit to deciding within a few days of the interview whether you will advance the candidate to the next step in the process.

20.   Be courteous.  Follow up with all candidates, including those that you decide not to move forward with, as a means of providing closure to the interview process.

 

4. Inappropriate Questions

 

Inappropriate/Illegal Questions

 

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate against any individual on the basis of that individual's race, color, religion, sex or national origin. The Civil Rights Act also created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency given responsibility for enforcement of the Act.

-It is okay to ask if one is a United States Citizen but not okay to ask if one's citizenship is of a national origin.

-It is discriminatory to ask how one learned to read, write, or speak a language, but it is acceptable to ask the language one speaks fluently, and if one speaks a foreign language.

 

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 prohibits discrimination "because of or on the basis of pregnancy, child birth, or related medical conditions shall be treated the same for all employment related purposes, including receipt of benefits under fringe benefit programs, as other persons not so affected but similar in their ability or inability to work, and nothing...shall be interpreted to permit otherwise."

-Avoid asking questions regarding relationships, marriage, children, pregnancy, childcare, marital status or childcare accommodations.

 

Generally an interviewer should not ask one's age during an interview. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of age against anyone over the age of 40. Some states and local governments also have laws that enforce age discrimination.

-With rare exceptions, the only age appropriate question to ask is if a candidate is over the age of 18.

 

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992 protects qualified individuals with a disability against discrimination in hiring, advancement, discharge, compensation, training or other terms and conditions of employment. It requires that reasonable accommodations be made to the known physical or mental limitations of qualified individuals with a disability, unless to do so would impose an undue hardship on the employer.

 

As a general rule you should not ask about one's use of lawful medication and/or prescription drugs.

 

Sample questions that may be asked:

-  How do you intend to get to work?

-  Do you have the legal right to remain permanently in the U.S.?

-  Are you willing to relocate?

-  Do you have any family, business or social obligations that would prevent you from working consistently or over time or prevent you from traveling?

-  Can you or are you willing to lift "X" number of pounds?

-  Are there any other names under which your employment may be verified?

-  What foreign language so you speak, read or write?

 

Sample questions that may not be asked:

-  What is the nationality of your parents or spouse?

-  How did you learn to speak a foreign language?

-  What color is your complexion or skin?

-  What religious holidays do you observe?

-  What parish do you belong to?

-  Did you ever have any other name than the one you are using now?

-  What clubs have you been a member?

-  Do you plan to marry?

-  Do you plan to have children?

-  Who will take care of your children?
