Advanced Recruiting TrendsJob Descriptions DVDOn a monthly basis, talent acquisition professionals within corporate recruitment, executive search, and staffing environments collectively spend countless millions promoting positions on large career portals, regional job boards, and smaller, specialized niche job boards. Online job postings have unquestionably become the predominant tool that recruiters utilize to attract talent.
As a result, today’s candidates are awash in advertising stimuli and seemingly have more options than ever before. As the number of online recruitment postings continues to rise, the same can’t be said for the actual content or quality of most job postings, descriptions, and advertisements. In short, not all job postings are created equally.
