Articles for Creating Job Postings and Descriptions

Snag the Most Promising Candidates with Creative Job Posts
Lure Talent with the Perfect Job Posting

“I posted a job that received very little response and no qualified candidates. I came across the PT WORK Force article stating that companies need to change their job postings to sell their open positions to potential candidates and realized my job posting only included tasks and requirements. Changing it to include a bigger picture story of “what you will be doing,” the posting has seen a large increase in response rate that also included a higher caliber of candidate.”
Hafeez Hameer, Dichtomatik Americas L.P.

“From reading PT WORK Force articles, I knew that young workers want to know the job requirements as well as how the job contributes to the overall company. I used the PT WORK Force job description template to add more context to each person’s role within the company. Now every employee has a better understanding of how his or her role impacts the success of the company.”
