Keep it Simple – What Do Job Seekers Want in a New Job?

November 20th, 2018

The first step in attracting star talent to apply to your open positions is to include the right information in your job posting.

Thankfully, applicants aren’t looking for wit or humor in a job post. What they want is simply valuable and relevant information. Give them what they are looking for and don’t get skimmed over just because you left out key points.

Job Seekers are Looking for These Factors in a Job Post

Be sure to include these pieces of key information in your next job post to recruit top applicants for your company.

Salary Information

No surprise here. Applicants want to see something regarding the salary of the position. Whether it’s a range or specific number, job seekers want to know whether or not this job will be able to fulfill their financial and lifestyle needs. Even though this is the most sought-after piece of information in a job post, it is not the biggest consideration when a person decides to apply for a job.

Office Perks and Benefits

The next rank of information has to deal with benefits, like health insurance, and office perks like on-site cafes or courtyards. The job post does not need to go into details about perks or benefits, but a quick acknowledgment that the company provides health insurance for that position or as coffee and snacks for employees is valuable information for job seekers.

Job Location

In addition to the actual location of the company, job seekers are also interested to know whether or not the position offers remote work days. Be sure to list this option if it’s relevant to your company and the job position.

Employee Reviews

Finally, job seekers are very interested to hear what other employees, current or past, have to say about the company. If you don’t already ask your employees to submit reviews, now is a great time to do so. Then, you can provide a direct link to your company reviews on the job listing.
