Job descriptions, person specifications and job adverts often seem like the same thing, but they all serve a different purpose in the recruitment process. Today I’ll give you a brief overview of each of these things and why they matter!
Job adverts, job descriptions and person specifications often seem like one and the same, but each one has its own purpose. Today I’m going to be giving you an idea of what a job advertisement is and why it is useful.
When thinking about person specifications, job descriptions and job adverts, they can all seem quite similar. However, these three different parts of the recruitment process have different purposes, so I have decided to tell you a bit more about person specifications and why they matter.
When recruiters talk about job descriptions, person specifications and job adverts, it often feels like they are talking about the same thing. Unfortunately for both of us they are three different elements of the recruitment process, and today I’m going to tell you what a job description is and why it is important!
There are many reasons that a job advert could fail to bring in the right calibre of candidates, from the actual contents of the advert to where in the world (wide web) you are advertising. Luckily for you, we’ve figured out some of these reasons and can help you to attract some more, great candidates.
So you’re writing a job advert and you’re not sure what to include? Look no further - I have 267 job adverts saved on my computer so far (and it’s growing by the hour), so I’m going to give you my opinion on what you should and shouldn’t include when trying to hire your dream candidates!
Having an organised, neatly laid out job advert will be far more attractive to your perfect candidates, and therefore attract them to apply for YOUR job, rather than companies X, Y & Z (otherwise known as your competitors).
