Here are a few tips, but you can learn more about creating job ad landing pages here.

First and foremost, the candidate will think WIIFM (what’s in it for me?)

Think about questions like:

  1. What’s your company story? Have you received any awards or other recognition? Why would someone want to join?
  2. What pains/problems does your company solve? How do you solve them?
  3. Who are the people working for the company?
  4. What makes your company unique?

Keep the sections balanced.

  • Start with what you offer, then continue with what you expect from the potential new coworker(s).
  • Pay attention to using inclusive language and removing unnecessary requirements.
  • Think about what would make the candidate scroll down and apply.
  • Use quotes from (hiring) managers and future coworkers.

Authenticity goes a long way – use real quotes for social proof. Try to avoid generic wordings that don’t provide any extra value or don’t bring out your uniqueness.

Bonus points for including photos, videos, original gifs or memes.

Be as transparent as possible.

  • If possible, describe what the process steps and timeline are.
  • Include the salary range in the job description.
  • Say that you provide feedback and stick to that promise!
