Candidate Experiences: It’s Plural

Posted on Mon, Sep 08, 2014 @ 10:27 PM

One of the fatal flaws in the current thinking about "Candidate Experience" is the idea that a good experience is a ‘one size fits all' sort of thing. Job Ads and the experience that surrounds them have to be relevant to a broad range of lookers with a broad range of emotions, backgrounds and interests.

Give Your Job Posting Titles a Bite and Sizzle

Posted on Mon, Dec 05, 2011 @ 09:23 AM

Job posting titles are important because they are what a candidate sees first when searching a job database on your career site or a job board. Unlike with a print publication, the posting itself is invisible until they click on the title and open up the ad. In other words, candidates on the Internet must make a conscious decision to look at your content, and their evaluation is based solely on the information that’s provided in the title.

To be effective, a job posting title must both inform and pique the curiosity of the reader. That’s true of all job seekers, but especially those who are passive. To motivate them to read on, a title must provide:

Dear Apartment Manager, Is Your Recruiting Social?

Posted on Mon, Nov 14, 2011 @ 02:30 PM

If your not using social networks to recruit and promote your company as an employer of choice, then you are in the VAST minority.  According to this recent survey 80% of companies are using social networks to recruit and almost half of the remaining companies are planning to use social networks.  I am not sure what the 11% of companies left use to recruit, but my guess is they do not do much hiring.  This trend is one of the reasons ApartmentCareers embraced social media as a recruiting tool to benefit our clients.  We were the first apartment industry recruiting portal with a significant presence in the social media networks.

Is Your Apartment Job Ad Boring? (Part 1 of 2)

Posted on Thu, Aug 04, 2011 @ 11:58 AM

Just for the record, the average job posting is about as exciting as reading the ingredients of a cereal box, “whole grain oats, whole grain corn, sugar, trisodium phosphate, blah, blah, blah” – boring!!  The verbiage and language we use to post jobs is almost as important as where they post them.  A survey by the Advertising Research Foundation found that more than 20 percent of a companies’ ad dollars are completely wasted. Why?  They did not communicate their message effectively!  So how do you put together an effective message for the job seeker?  Unlike the printed page and classified ads, job boards provide enough physical space to present lots of information to the prospective candidate. The average commercial job board will permit postings to run at least 1,000 words, or the equivalent of two typed pages (Warning - two pages is overkill).  Recruiting actively unemployed candidates does not require significant work to convince them to call about a vacancy, but to recruit the currently employed but “just looking” candidate; companies need the additional space the job board offers.   Companies focusing on luring top talent away are trying to convince someone to change from, in some cases, the devil they know to the devil they don’t know.  These companies must see their postings not as the electronic equivalents of classified ads, but as electronic sales brochures.  These job postings need to be informative and compelling so the most reluctant candidate will be moved to consider the opening.

Internet Search - How jobs seekers do their research

Posted on Sat, Dec 18, 2010 @ 07:55 PM

"The Internet has become the most popular method of job searching," said Gad Levanon, Economist at The Conference Board. Employers have also taken advantage of the Internet era. Last month, The Conference Board Help-Wanted OnLine Data Series™ reported that there were nearly 4.3 million online advertised job vacancies. There were almost 3 advertised vacancies online for every 100 persons in the labor force in September. Employers are able to post more of their jobs at a more reasonable cost for a longer period of time instead of relying on newspaper classified ads that are paid weekly. The exposure of these jobs is much greater as well. Internet advertised jobs will be put in front of millions of candidates nationwide and worldwide, while the newspaper only covers a limited radius. With the rapid growth in technology over the last decade and new advancements being achieved daily, convenience and immediate results have become expected. Job Seekers want an easier, less strenuous method for finding a quality position that offers them their desired salary and benefits. Employers are seeking cost effective ways to put their job openings in front of as many job seekers as they can. The Internet has provided a platform for both parties to connect in a faster, more efficient means. As an employer, are you putting your jobs in front of these candidates? The ApartmentCareers.Com network, which includes the National Apartment Association Career Center, Texas Apartment Association Career Center, Apartment Association of Greater Dallas Career Center, Apartment Association of Tarrant County, and the Nevada State Apartment Association provide an excellent vehicle for placing your jobs in front of millions of candidates. The ApartmentCareers.Com network is the best tool for finding jobs and candidates in the apartment industry.
