Most jobs postings are miles long and include more information than the applicant needs to know at that moment, plus all the extras or fluff could be keeping great applicants from throwing their hats in the ring. So, how can you de-clutter your job posting and accommodate your talent pool? Here are some tips to update your job postings for the new normal.
Innovation and failure are often bedfellows. Many of the great intentions and inventors of our times left behind a trail of failures in the path to their victory. One of the reasons for this is that you can only fail if you try, and any person who tells you they have never failed is either lying or has never taken a big risk. The people who made their mark in any given industry are always those who aren’t afraid to fail which opens up the possibilities of greater success.
Despite an incredibly unpredictable 2020 where COVID-19 sent shock waves through the US economy, job seekers plan to search for jobs in 2021. While only 10% of job seekers said that finding a job in the new year would be easier than the year before, there’s plenty of positivity on the horizon.
Just because 2020 is over doesn’t mean that the search for the essential worker is over. So long as people are waiting for their vaccine, and ordering groceries online, and driving through testing centers, we’re still going to need to focus on continuing our hiring of those that kept us going through 2020, the brave, the courageous, the essential worker.
For those tasked with hiring essential workers – we have to think about all aspects of the hire, from where we find them, who we target, how we message them, when we can onboard, and what we do to keep them engaged.
Recently, my blogging has been centered around a theme of New Year's resolutions. But what comes after the New Year? Valentine's Day. So, in the name of love, I pivot.
I’m going to call back from not too far back in my past to my dating life (ah, remember dates?). I, like many of your friends, met my partner the old-fashioned way, using an app I downloaded on my iPhone. Tale as old as time, I tell ya. Before I met Mr. Wonderful, I went out on a myriad of first dates. So, when I tell you about the “good on paper” date, I doubt any of you are scratching your heads wondering what on earth I could mean by that. He’s the guy that seems to have all the right qualities you’re looking for – but you meet him, and none of what you want is there.
That’s what happens when your employer brand doesn’t match up with your candidate experience. Your brand is the date who’s good on paper. The experience you offer your candidate will decide if you’re going to get dumped.
We enter the New Year with new goals, new perspectives, new year, new me. One thing that doesn’t need to be revamped is your top Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). You can apply new programs and you can revitalize a lot within your organization to attract new candidates in 2021, but ways in which you measure your success will just need a renewed focus so you can observe your progress.
