As the world transitions from print to digital platforms, everyone has to start altering the way they do things in order to get the right results. Before the Internet, recruiters could put out general job descriptions because there were a lot more general practitioners than specialists. But things have changed, and recruiters now need to start altering the way they write job postings if they want to really attract the kind of talent they need for each position.
How Your Bad Job Posting Is Hurting Your Efforts
If there is one thing recruiters hate doing, it is going through a mountain of resumes to find good candidates. The vast majority of those resumes are not from qualified candidates, and the qualified candidates are usually missing one or more major qualifications. Is there a problem with the candidates that is causing you to get these terrible resumes? No, the problem is your job descriptions.
