Think about the last job you applied to. What caught your eye in the description that enticed you to apply? Great job descriptions include the following: the job title (of course), a summary of the role, along with the responsibilities and duties so that your applicant can gauge their potential day to day. But with so many companies competing for talent, a hot topic that has been up for debate is if you should include the salary in the job description to increase applicants.
Have you ever interviewed a phenomenal candidate only to lose them once it came time to talk salary? It ends up being a major waste of time for all parties involved. You think you’re getting a stellar candidate and they think they’re getting their dream role. Companies are hesitant to list salary ranges in fear of losing potential candidates to competing employers but listing the salary range for a job can actually attract the best fit for your role.
