Tigerjobs tips - internet recruitment
Use of the internet as a recruitment resource.
In todays job market, you the employer need to find a way to get your job offers in front of candidates while they are working... Right on their PC screen! This is what the internet offers compared to traditional recruitment media.
One possible template you can use to post your job.
Here's where you need to shine! Use the same prinicples you use in any advertising. You only have 3 seconds to capture attention. Here's where you put a "what's in it for me" type statement. Keep in mind that money is not always the main determining factor. Work environment is very high on the list. You might ask your employees what they like about their job, get feedback from the people that have already made the decision to join you.
Now that you have a candidates' attention, he needs to know if he has a chance of getting the job. Bullet list skill sets, computer knowledge, and experience. Don't put too much detail, summarize as much as possible. If there are equivalent job experiences that would also be a consideration, be sure to enter it here.
Recap the positives. A brief credibility statement about your company leading to your web site address would go here.
How can they contact you? We highly recommend that you put as much contact information as possible. If you don't have the time for phone calls - except for the qualified candidates, at least give them a choice of e-mail, fax and snail mail. We don't recommend that you withhold your address, even if it is a PO Box.
Keep in mind that job postings are often pulled out of a database with the use of keywords. If your ad text does not contain all the possible words or phrases that a candidate can use to find your job, enter additional keywords at the end of the ad. E.g...job description phrases, (outside sales, inside sales, branch manager, management, etc.), skill sets (cold calling, presentation, Excel, Goldmine, AS-400, etc.), industry or product (industrial, machinery, capitol equipment, consumer products, pharmaceuticals..etc).
